A is for Amigurumi

Amigurumi - The Japanese art form of crocheting or knitting small stuffed animals. Crocheting is worked with single crochet stitches and all stitches are worked in a round.

The crochet world has so many different styles and techniques. Amigurumi is just one of those techniques. When I first learned to crochet one of the first projects I worked on was worked using this technique. All stitches are worked in a round. So instead of slip stitching at the end of each round, you just keep going. This creates a nice seamless look on all your crochet stuffed animals. Below is a gorgeous crochet elephant that I just recently added to my shop.
You can find it for sale at Craft Creek You can find the pattern for sale at Elephant Pattern
