Crochet your own cute, cuddly animals

See also

Learn how to crochet woodland animals and toys including bears, deer, a raccoon and a bluebird. Join the Craftsy class Amigurumi: Woodland Animals, and have fun making the cutest and cuddliest little critters you can imagine.

The patterns are fun to learn and even brand-new crocheters will enjoy learning the basics, while vets will learn how to make these unique whimsical toys.

The online class will teach you how to make four adorable, simple, stress-free steps to creating these creatures on your own. Creating the patterns in the Japanese amigurumi style, the techniques you learn will have your crocheting and conquering any future crochet project.

In the beginning of the online class they will cover the basics including chaining, single crochet, increasing and decreasing before challenging yourself to make the crochet toy creatures. The class will also show you both the sloppy slip knot and the magic ring methods to getting started without leaving a hole in your work.

The class will also explain the difference between crocheting through both loops of the chain, and crocheting through the back loop of the chain-- the typical style for amigurumi as it creates a more substantial fabric. Plus, they will reveal a simple way to change colors cleanly!

After that they walk you through step-by-step exclusive patterns. You'll learn the different types of stitch markers and find out how to sport the beginning of the round, identify where your increases or decreases are, or how find your place if you get interrupted or lose track of counting.

Last of all they provide finishing tips for stuffing, attaching various pieces for assembling the items successfully, and finishing toys with child-safe details. Sign up for Amigurumi: Woodland Animals, and create a sturdy bear, winsome deer, mischievous raccoon and non-angry bluebird!
