It’s been eight months since I started crocheting amigurumi. I’m having a lot of fun with it, particularly as it still allows me to engage in other things I also enjoy, like science fiction, fantasy, gaming, and so on. So far I’ve completed about a dozen projects and have progressed fairly well with my skills (though I still have lots to learn!). While reflecting on how far I’ve come, I realized there are things I’ve learned along the way that would have been helpful to know up front. I’m sure I’m not alone in this, so, without further ado, here are ten beginner crochet tips I wish amigurumi tutorials had taught me!
In May I was working on crocheting the second test for my Pod Palls doll. Beta 2.0 was going to be more detailed, potentially able to stand on its own, and would have been a bit larger than Beta 1.0. In the end I scrapped that test as it was taking too long and I was getting frustrated over trying to work in the extra details. Possibly I’ll give it another go in the future. Instead, I decided to move on to doing my first official Pod Pal, for Mynxee!
Hi! I’m Shai (aka Sakaane). Welcome to Incyanity! I love nature and am a proud Canadian, born and raised in Calgary. Cyan is my favorite color. Steak, nachos, and jumbo sour keys FTW. I enjoy gaming, writing, crochet, and photography. Drawing? Coding websites? Editing? Camping? Fishing? Reading? Aquariums? Yes, those too. I probably have too many hobbies. Completely yarn obsessed!
