What in the world is Amigurumi?

Amigurumi is the japanese art of crocheting or knitting stuffed toys. The prevailing opinion among Amigurumi crafters is that it is pure cuteness. Amigurumi has become popular throughout the world. There is a vast selection of patterns created by both independent designers and big publishing houses. Patterns can be free or they can be bought for a small fee. Whichever you choose to try, it will open up a whole new experience in crocheting or knitting.

Amigurumi patterns can be easy or very difficult. The skill level of the crocheter or knitter should be considered when choosing a pattern. A pattern that is to difficult for a crocheter or knitter will result in a experience that might be less than enjoyable. Below are some Amigurumi websites:
