Good to know (useful tips about crocheting amigurumi)
1: Magic ring is the best way to start crocheting your amigurumi which leaves no hole in the middle & gives you a very neat finish
that you will love and appreciate.

2: Always leave the yarn tails a bit longer to sew the parts together.

3: Any size hook with a correspondingly sized yarn can be used to crochet amigurum i. Though the most common combination is
aran / worsted yarn and 3.50mm hook.

You may now say that the label on your yarn suggests that you should you use 5.00mm hook with your aran yarn. In order to
crochet a nice and neat amigurumi you need to use at l east one size smaller hook than your yarn suggests. With a smaller hook
you can crochet your amigurumi tightly, so the stuffing won’t show through. If you are crocheting way too tight I suggest tha t
you may use either 4.00mm or 4.25mm hook with your aran y arn instead of 5.00mm hook.

4: Although some amigurumi patterns are worked with single crochet & in joined rounds which you do not need to use a stitch
marker, most amigurumi patterns are worked with single crochet & in continuous / spiral rounds which y ou need to use a stitch
marker to mark the beginning of each round.

5: A small pair sharp pointed scissors is the best scissors to have when crocheting amigurumi to cut / snip the yarns and tri m
the ends.

Page Three Copyright © Tatie Soft Toys 2018
6: You’ll need a blunt -tipped yarn needle to weave in yarn ends & stitch the parts / pieces together.

7: Pins always come in handy keeping the parts / pieces in place while you are sewing them together.

8: Acrylic is the most popular yarn to make amigurumi. Having said that if you choose the cheapest acrylic yarns they can be
very scratchy & rough to work with and the toy will not be very pleasant to touch. I prefer soft premium acrylic yarns which
are pleasure to crochet with & the finished toy turns out nice, smooth & soft. The premium acrylic yarns are inexpensive, plus
machine washable & they don’t stretch. On top of everything acrOLF\DUQVDUHDYDLODEOHLQDZLGHYDULHW of colours.

However, you may choose to work wi th wool, but I must say that wool yarns can be scratchy to work with, they may be
stretched and also expensive. Another thing with wool is that some people are allergic to it.

As for cotton, I must admit that you do get very clearly defined stitches with cotton, but be careful when you’re choosing your
cotton yarn. Lightly twisted cotton yarns with 100% combed cotton fibres are perfect to crochet pleasant to touch amigurumi
toys with, whereas the tightly twisted cotton yarns are very good to crochet durabl e baskets with.
9: I prefer to use super soft polyester fibrefill for my amigurumi projects, as it’s lightweight, bouncy, washable, long last ing
and it does give your amigurumi a nice & smooth finish with no lumps at all.

10: If I am not crocheting or e mbroidering the eyes I do prefer to use safety eyes as they lock into place with a backing
washer.

11: Invisible decrease is the best way to crochet your decreases as it leaves a less visible bump in the crocheted fabric. Yo u
will be doing a lot of incre asing & decreasing when crocheting amigurumi. I’ve done my best to explain them both below as
simple as possible.

Invisible decrease: Insert the hook into the **front loop** of the first stitch (2 loops on hook). **Do NOT yarn over**
Insert the hook into the **front loop** of the next stitch. In order to do this, you’ll need to swing the hook down first so you
can insert the hook under the front loop. (3 loops on hook)

Yarn over & draw through the first two loops on the hook. (2 loops on hook)

Yarn over & draw through both loops on the hook. You’ve done your invisible decrease.

Increase: Two single crochet into one stitch.

12: To conclude good to know section I would like to tell you how to read my patterns with a simple example.

3 sc, *2 sc, inc * rep 6 times , 3 sc

Single crochet in each of next 3 stitches , *single crochet in each of next 2 stitches , increase* repeat 6 times, single crochet
in each of next 3 stitches .

Only repeat what is written between the two star s. In this case it’s *2 sc, inc *

Cut a long enough yarn tail for sewing.













**Important Please Read Before Start Crocheting**
Although 3.50mm hook is the most common size to be used while crocheting amigurumi with an aran / worsted weight yarn, having tried them both
3.00mm & 3.50mm I’ve decided to use 3.00mm hook in mDPLJXUXPLSURMHFWVDVLWFUHDWHVWLJKWHUVWLWFKHVKHQFHVPa ller holes when the piece is
filled with stuffing.
I suggest that you try them both 3.00mm, 3.50mm to find out which size you are most comfortable crocheting your amigurumi wi th. If you think
3.50mm is too small for you then try 4.00mm or 4.25 mm to see which one is best for you.
Size of the hook & the thickness of the yarn affect the size of the finished toy. You may need to use slightly bigger or smal ler safety eyes if you use
different size of hook and different weight of yarn.

How to flatten & crochet over open end

over open end.





Push the open end together.

As a stitch marker we are using a 25 cm / 10” long yarn
piece in cream or any other colour you wish apart from light
caramel.
So, just for now put your plastic stitch marker aside and use
the yarn piece as your stitch marker which is going to be out
guide while inserting the eyes.

And then find the 1 st hole in between 16 th & 17 th rounds which is
the one where your st marker yarn is in, then count 9 holes
from left to right / c lockwise and the insert your 1 st eye into
the 10 th hole. Leave 9 holes and then insert your 2 nd eye into
the 10 th hole.

23: *2 sc, inv dec* rep 6 times [18 sts]
Do not fasten off.

Blue arrow is pointing the 1 st hole in between the 16 th & 17 th rounds.
I’ve also pointed the hole out with the sage coloured pin. Count 9
holes clockwise / from left to right and insert the first eye into the
10th hole.





Count 9 holes again and the insert the 2nd eye into the 10 th hole.

Head Step Four
Colour: Light Caramel

Do not cut the yarn; we will carry on crocheting again little later, but you can un pick the yarn stitch marker now and get y our plastic stitch marker.
Place the muzzle in between the round 15 and 23.
Put a little bit of stuffing into the muzzle and first pin it on the face and then sew the half of the muzzle on the face and then add little bit more
stuffing inside the muzzle and carrRQVHZLQJLW2QFH\RXYe finished sewing the muzzle on the face bring the yarn out of the open end of the head.















Muzzle is sewn onto the face as you can see in the photo left above.
Thread a 30 cm long cotton embroidery thread through a yarn needle. Insert the needle from the bottom of the head, leaving a short yarn tail.
Make a long vertical stitch and bring the needle out where you want the nose to start as you see in the photo right above.













Make horizontal stitches to form the nose. Keep stitching until you are happy with the nose. Then, bring the needle out from the bottom of head
again. This is how you embroider the nose of a bear; you can make both horizontal & vertical stitches as wide / narrow or short / long as you wish.
I’ve narrowed my horizontal stitches by one ho le. I brought my needle out from the hole which is just before the hole needle is coming
out in the photo left above . Scroll down to see the small nose. I’ve done this after the ears were sewn. That’s why I haven’t changed the
nose embroidery tutorial photos. The way of embroidering the nose is still the same 

Place the ears between the 4 th and the 11 th rounds and sew them
to the head.













Bring the yarn tails out from the bottom of the head.
Fasten all yarn tails securely with a couple of knots under the
head.
Add a bit more stuffing inside the head.
We can now carry on crocheting as RXVHHWKHORRSZHGLGQW
fasten the head off.

Carrying on crocheting the head:
24: **At this point we crochet with the arms in order to attach the arms to the head**
For the first 5 sc sts , grab one of the arms and crochet with the arm, then 4 sc as normal, and then grab the other arm and crochet 5 sc with the
arm, then 4 sc as normal. [18 sts]

25: Sc around BACK LOOPS ONLY [18 sts] Front loops will be used to sew the head and blanket together.
Add a bit more stuffing into the head.
26: invisible decrease 9 times [9 sts]
Close the hole and cut a long enough yarn tail for sewing head to the blanket.
At this point you should also fasten the arms and lose the yarn tails inside the each arm.










I’ve fastened off the yarn tails of the arms and closed the hole in the middle. Put a pin on each arm to keep them up.
