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.

Let’s get started!
