Amigurumi for Beginners


Amigurumi is essentially the same as crochet, only it refers specifically to the process of making 3D toys. Amigurumi almost always involves working in the round, making spheres which are then stuffed to form the limbs and bodies of some adorable little animals or dolls. In this class, we will cover how to interpret Amigurumi patterns, how to use the magic ring method when working in the round, and some tips and tricks to make your characters special. To begin your Amigurumi journey, you will be using a kit with everything you need to complete a cute animal or doll.


Warning: Once you try this craft, you will become addicted.

Pre-requisite skills: Knowledge of chain, single crochet, slip stitch, half double crochet and double crochet stitches.


Materials: Purchased kit from the shop that includes everything you need.

Blocking Your Project


Blocking is a method of stretching and shaping a finished knitted piece to reach the dimensions suggested in the pattern, to make two pieces that need to match the same size, or to make your stitches look nicer and more even. Lace almost always needs to be blocked to "open up" the design, so all those beautiful holes and patterns show in their true glory.


There are 3 main methods of blocking. Wet, steam, and spray. We will talk about each of these methods and how to know when to use the right one for your project.


Materials suggested, but not necessary are:

One unblocked item

T-pins

Blocking Boards

Blocking Wires


Wednesday, October 20th @ 11am - 12:30pm

Instructor: Eebie Cheshire


Cost: Free with a purchase of a set of Knit Blockers or Blocking Wires or $30 for the workshop
