It started at harmless at first, I happened to be browsing the craft section for beading and jewelry making books and I happen to pick up a book called Amigurumi World and was suddenly struck by Japanese inspired cuteness overload. I didn't buy it since I didn't know how to crochet...at all.

So I went home and started to learn how to crochet from a friend. I can do chains and SC so far and they look half way decent now.

So I'm wondering, how hard are making amigurumi? Can a beginner do it?

I would say yes! The first things i made when i taught myself how to crochet were some amigurumi all my friends got them for christmas! You Just need to make sure u mark ur stitches when you do your rounds with a saftey pin maybe so u know where u started and it make it easier to keep count and track of when u need to increase etc.

There are lots of free patterns if you look for them, if you look through this list you will find some amigurumi type patterns:


Also as you probably know by now there are loads of ideas on here! This is a good pattern to begin with maybe..


You just need to remember to keep your stitches tight! Good luck!

I just bought that book yesterday, believe it or not. xD I'm a beginner, too, and the amigurumi are my first project. The only thing that confuses and frustrates me is crocheting in the round...it's foreign to me. lol I'll figure it out with help eventually.

Good luck with your amigurumi!  Cheesy
