  1. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm making a doll right now which I want to have loose curls. Various articles says to curl the yarn around something then use glue to keep it in place. Bit hesitant to do that as I would imagine that would leave the "hair" feeling rock hard. I was thinking the best idea would be to split the yarn but not sure if the wisps would stay. What would you say would be the best option? Thank you in advance
  2. If you are planning to make toys as gifts for the Holidays, consider Trixie. She is super cute and relatively easy and fast to make. Here is where you will find the FREE pattern to make her: Trixie the Funmigurumi Smoochies Bear
  3. Hey all, I've recently found this pattern for an amigurumi Dragon by Crafty Intentions on Ravelry and am slowly working my way through it. It's been a while since I've done some crocheting because college gets me busy, but I haven't been having any issues with this pattern until I started on the body. To be more precise, the tail. This pattern is worked in multiple sections; I've finished the head and I'm currently on the body. This is what the beginning section of this pattern says to do, but it always puffs out a bit around row 3-4 and then tightens up when I start making the small increases in row 5, to a point where it just becomes unworkable. Does anyone have any tips for how they make small areas like this? I haven't had problems doing sc4-wide magic rings before until I bought this pattern. (I highlighted it so I knew where to crop on the screenshot; it continues in this fashion, increasing by one stitch every couple of rows, and you should get what you see in the pictures. Pictures provided from pattern instructions.) The pattern is worked with a G hook, though I tried starting off the tail with an F hook and didn't have much luck that way either. Also have tried extremely loose tension, and I just can't seem to get it right.
  4. Well it has taken a lot of You Tube and a lot of starting and stopping but I got to do a magic ring, crochet 6 stitches and closed the ring ok! What I would like to know is that my pattern says crochet 2dc in each stitch. I find this really difficult, I cant seem to find the stitch again (maybe it's too tight?). Is it really necessary to crochet in dc as I find, at the moment I can manage single easier!! I am just working on a test piece before I start the actual toy.
  5. Most of the crochetting I do is amigurumis. I buy red heart because it is easy to find, cheap and I think it's stiffness is actually a plus for the toys. I have noticed difference in quality depending on the color, some could be very plasticky and some felt nicer. But the last two balls had slightly different thicknesses, enough to ruin my project. It was a very small doll. It was a promised gift so I modified the pattern a bit and it looks odd but ok, but now I am left with all this yarn that I can't combine well with other yarns of the same brand. Has anyone had that problem before? I know it is not a very fine yarn but, given how artificial and "industrial" it looks, I expected it to least not vary in thickness.
  6. Hello! I am making a multi-coloured giraffe amigurumi for a baby shower. I'm trying to keep the colour changes as smooth as possible, which is proving a challenge when the rounds are spiralled. One method I found was joining the next colour when completing the last stitch of the round and making a slip stitch as the first stitch rather than a dc (or sc for US) on the next round. Unfortunately, I noticed that when looking at my giraffe's arm the colour changes appear to be in a spiral going up the arm. I've attached a picture to show you all. I'm not quite sure how to fix this. It might not be so noticeable in the arms but I'm worried it will in the legs and body, which have more rows. Do you all have any suggestions on how to fix this? Ta, Jade PS: The arm has 12 dc per round and rounds are spiralled.
  7. Hello, I'm new to the forum and also fairly new to crocheting. I have a pattern for two amigurumi dogs i got from a magazine but I'm unsure of how to get started as the directions don't specify how long my chain should be. It just says 1ch and then 8 dbl stch. I'll attach images to show you. Any help would be great! Thank you Linda
  8. Does anyone know where I can find the original pattern for this Elvis doll please?

  11. Hi there! I am very new to crocheting and currently am trying to teach myself how to follow a pattern I have an amigurumi deer. I had the help of YouTube videos, but now I find myself at a lost. The part I am at says to start with a new yarn for the back leg. Then it says: "Begin at the end of ch13 from (b), work downward (see diagram). R1: ch1, 5cr (in last 5ch from the (b) ch13), t." I looked at the provided diagram and I am so, so confused. I guess what I dont understand is am I supposed to continue working on the crochet piece of the main body by stitching into it? or will I add the leg on later on? Also, if it is that I stitch into it, could someone provide a youtube link on how to do this if you wouldn't mind? I think for the part after the leg, the buttox, I will also be lost. Could someone please help guide me? I would be open to a google hangout or skype or something to better understand how to do this haha... I just want to make a crochet deer for a "deer" friend of mine <3 note: i've added some photos of the pattern. I have done most of the outer body i think correctly. Just need to do the back leg right now. thank you in advance for the help!

  13. Hi everyone. Newbie here and to crochet. I found amigurumi and haven't stopped making all kinds of things, since I started about 6 months ago. I feel I'm finally ready to make my own pattern, as I had an epiphany last night, about amigurumi and math. I hate math...a lot. I'm more of a, 'right-brained,' kind of person. I have been looking for an amigurumi pattern generator and cannot find anything. I also was thinking perhaps patterns could be made in CAD, or vectorworks, Has anyone done anything like that?? Also, if this is is the wrong forum, please let me know. Happy Hooking!!

  15. Hi, I have completed several amigurumis in the past and I am now working on a unicorn. For some reason, I am having a really hard time with this pattern. I'm working on the front leg on row 18. I have counted my stitches from row 17 and I had 24, but at the end of row 18, I only end up with 15. Please help! Here is the link to the pattern.

  19. I am making a series of scrap cats comprised mostly from bits of yarn I have tied end-to-end. The pattern is Jannette Williams' Caity Cat. Here is the second in the series (and here is a blog post that details more of the details):
  20. Hi, I'm having some trouble with a pattern. I've crocheted amigurumi without problems before when I don't have to join or ch1 at the end of rows, but this annoying ridge always happens if I do it according to those instructions: Pattern is here: Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!
  21. I am new to crochet, and I'm not sure why the stitching on this banana looks twisted. After the first couple rows, they were all 15 sc's. Why did it end up slanting? On the monkey body (which can't be seen too well in the picture) it isn't slanted at all. I know the monkey face is all wonky; I ended up putting it on sideways because the shape worked better. Mostly, I want to avoid the slanty stitch like the banana has. I did it exactly the same way as the body, so not sure what happened. Thanks!!

  23. Hi, I want to make a dish sponge out of tulle/ cotton yarn in the shape of different amigurumi water creatures. I'm having trouble thinking of a good stuffing. It needs to be waterproof, obviously. it doesn't need to be absorbent because the yarn will do that. It does need to be machine washable. Relatively cheap is also a bonus. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate it. Thank you.
