Knit And Crochet Design Week: Day Two, Techniques!

Too be honest, I probably use the same techniques as everyone else who makes amigurumi. I suppose I can list the different techniques I use anyway, just for fun.

1. I don't use a magic ring, I chain two, and work the desired amount of stitches into the second chain.
2. Generally, I don't use any stitch other than single crochet.
3. Everyone uses a stitch marker right? Wait, that's not even a technique.....
4. I do sometimes single crochet through the back loop, such as, if I want the bottom of my plushie's feet to be flat instead of round.
5. Of course, the invisible decrease,
6. Sometimes I work into the face with slip stitches. For instance, if I want to give my plush eyelids, I slip stitch into the face about four stitches, turn,single crochet across my slipped stitches, slip stitch into the last stitch, then fasten off.
7. I hide my yarn tails inside of my plushy. ;)

I guess that's about all technique-wise!

check out other day two posts here!


  1. It's always good to remind folks about stitch markers!

  2. lol yeah XD I'm the type who never counts her stitches (ok, sometimes.....)
    so stitch markers are a must have!

  3. your eyelid trick is fantastic! great technique :) i'll have to find something with eyelids to make :D

  4. It does come in handy! I've only made a few things with eyelids, but it really makes them pop! :)


I Love getting your comments!! Thank you so much! ^_^
