Before we get started, let’s go over what Amigurumi is:

In Japanese, amigurumi refers to knitted or crocheted stuffed dolls. Making amigurumi is a fine art that requires practice and patience. Having a whimsical imagination helps, too. For each step you will see abbreviations. Please see the chart below on what each abbreviation means.

  • CH = CHAIN
  • SC = SINGLE CROCHET
  • DC = DOUBLE CROCHET
  • HDC = HALF-SOUBLE CROCHET
  • DTR =  DOUBLE TRIPLE CROCHET
  • INC =  INCREASE
  • DEC  =  DECREASE
  • INV DEC = INVISIBLE DECREASE
  • SL ST(S) = SLIP STITCH(ES)
  • ST(S) =  STITCH(ES)

In the patterns, brackets [ ] indicate a group of stitches to be made all at once or repeated a specified number of times. Parentheses ( ) within brackets further set off stitches. Curly brackets { } at the end of the line indicate the number of stitches you should end up with.
