The question is how do you start off when making amigurumi?
When I first wanted to learn I found a lot of articles online which said that to start off you need to use a magic ring. I read these articles and watched a few videos and tried to make a magic ring - but I just couldn't get it to work. And then somewhere I came across something which explained a different way of starting off. That way works perfectly for me so I'll share it here with you.
How to make your first round of amigurumi: a) make a slip knot on your crochet hook b) chain 2 c) single crochet into your first chain d) single crochet 5 more times into your first chain and you have your first round of 6 stitches!
I have been making and designing amigurumi since March 2009. This is the place where I share my creations and various bits of my life! If you are interested in buying any of my amigurumi or if you want to ask for a custom request feel free to check out my etsy shop below.
