How to make a head for an amigurumi doll

Use 3.5mm hook and a colour of your choice.

Amigurumi crochet works in un-joined rounds.

These are the stitches used: you can click on any of them for a video demonstration.
Ch – chain
Sc – single crochet
2sctog/dec – decrease

This is the pattern:

The numbers in brackets indicate how many stitches there should be in that round.

The first step is the one I have illustrated in my blog post ‘the not magic ring’

• Ch 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook (6)
• 2 sc in each stitch (12)
• 1 sc then 2 sc in next stitch – repeat 5 times (18)
• Sc in first 2 stitches then 2 sc in next stitch – repeat 5 times (24)
• 4 more rounds of 24
• Sc in first 2 stitches, 2sctog – repeat 5 times (18)
• Sc in first stitch, 2sctog – reapeat 5 times (12)
• Stuff the head
