New Updates Section

Hello!

As much effort you put into doing things right, there is something that escapes me. What happens is not for you?

At the hour of writing my amigurumi patterns I put all my attention, but is a process of many steps: the draft and the final on paper and then step into digital format, write, add photos, editing, proofreading, translation …

And when you least expect a number that can ruin the whole pattern escapes, or repeat a sequence, or you skip a turn, the self-correcting plays a trick on you … a thousand things can go wrong.

Thinking and thinking about how to make you things easier, because no matter how hard I will still be minor niggles, I decided to add a new section to the website with updates and bug patterns that make them.

This way you can easily check if there have been any changes to your employer and to download and updated from your account.

  • Separation chain

Let’s start learning the basic stitches we must crochet to give life to our amigurumis:

CHAIN

It is the basic stitch par excellence and give rise to many of our creations.

It consists of forming a slipknot that, as its name indicates, “we will chain” several times until we achieve the length that we are interested in obtaining.

In my amigurumi patterns you can find it to start the fabric in straight, or form various elements such as thick eyebrows, hair strands, horns, etc.

In this video you can see how it’s done:
