How To Crochet Stuffed Animals
It’s easier than you think to create your own stuffed animal friends! If you're just jumping into the world of making your own amigurumis and stuffed animals - be aware! As soon as you start making them, people (and furbabies) will be begging for their very own handmade stuffie!
Here are 5 main tips we have if this is your first amigurumi / stuffed animal project:
- Learn how to work in the round
- Be confident in your increases and decreases
- Stuff your new friend evenly! (Use more in the feet and hands, then in the legs and arms, if you want it to be more bendable)
- Use stitch markers and keep count of your stitches
- Be aware of gauge, and make it consistent throughout the project
