Amigurumi bear

Amigurumi are small crocheted or knitted figures. A Amigurmi is usually made from yarn, with a small crochet hook, so the fabric stays thight enough to be filled, and the object itself doesn't get too large. The body and the head are usually made in one piece, any limbs are hooked separately and then attached to the body.

Crochet abbreviations

  • Chain stitch (ch): Wrap the yarn over the hook and draw the yarn through to form a new loop
  • Single crochet (sc): Insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated, then yarn over and pull up a loop. (You should have two loops on your hook.) Yarn over and draw through both of the loops on your hook.
  • Decrease (dec): There are several variations of decrease stitches. Decreasing can be done by one of two methods...1) skipping stitches...2) do two or more stitches within one step of completion then draw through all loops on hook
  • Stitches (s/st/sts)
  • Increase (inc): When you increase you are only adding extra stitches. Example: If the row you just completed has 12 stitches and you need to add 3 stitches evenly, then you should do an extra stitch in the 3rd, 6th and 9th stitch to make the pattern even.
  • Popcorn (pc): The standard popcorn stitch is worked as follows: Work 5 double crochets in the chain or stitch indicated. Drop the loop from the hook. Insert the hook in first top of the first double crochet of the 5-dc group. Pick up the dropped loop. Draw through the stitch. Ch1. Now you can "pop" the popcorn to the right or wrong side of the work as needed.
  • Single crochet two together (sc2tog): work a single stitch across multiple stitches so that many stitches are reduced to one.
