What is the Best Yarn to Crochet Amigurumis?

Yarn is the raw material of our amigurumis and its choice is essential when we want to do a good job.

If you are following me, you will already know me and you will know that I always encourage you to experiment for yourselves and to find what you like most, what makes you feel happy and comfortable with what you do.

The choice of yarn depends on many factors, some of them personal, so I could not make a specific and unique recommendation for crocheting, but what I can do is help you make a decision showing the pros and cons that I found in my personal experience.

Try crocheting with a smaller needle.

How to Crochet Ringlets for the Hair of your Amigurumis

Hello weaver!

Today I bring you a tutorial that will come great to you if you want to make ringlets for the hair of your amigurumis.

You may have already seen them in some of my patterns, as in the Unicorn Witch or the Christmas elf.

We can make the ringlets separately or on an crocheted base that will have already the shape and size that we need. Here, for example, I have crocheted an elongated piece that, once the ringlets are added, will become the manes of our unicorn witch.

Each little animal is designed so that you can separate it from the character it represents, that is, you can remove the clothes and accessories whenever you want. By this way you have 2 patterns in 1, the animal and the character.
