What even is amigurumi? A type of fish? A dance craze? A skin disease?
Amigurumi is the Japanese art of making a crocheted or knitted soft toy, a cute animal or anthropomorphic creature.
Ami means crocheted
Nuigurumi means soft doll.
Have a search through Pinterest to see what amazing tiny cute things people have crocheted. In previous posts you can see my first efforts at this dainty craft.
Given that I am a hasty, get it done quickly, very loose ill- disciplined crafter , amigurumi toys are very good discipline for me, fine yarn, very fine hook, having to count rows like crazy, tidy accurate sewing together of tiny pieces. Can you guess though I’m totally loving it!
