What should you know before starting an amigurumi? Tips for Success!

Bellow, You’ll find some tips and tricks to avoid the mistakes all beginner crocheters make with their first amigurumi.

What type of yarn should I use for an amigurumi project?

If you’re looking to make an adorable crochet bunny amigurumi, you may think the type of yarn you use doesn’t matter, but you’d be wrong!

Different yarn weights provide different textures and looks, opening up even more options for your adorable bunnies.

Whether you’re looking for something lightweight or heavier, fluffy or soft, DK weight, worsted weight, bulky weight, or velvet yarn, the Amigurumi bunny pattern is designed to fit them all.

Using the same pattern years ago, I crocheted a 12 cm bunny with mercerized cotton yarn, and today’s bunny using velvet yarn is 31 cm in height.

Keep in mind using different weights of yarn will result in different finished sizes for your stuffed rabbit.

How to choose the perfect hook size for an amigurumi?

One of the most important factors for the success of the amigurumi is using the correct size hook. However, choosing the right hook can be tricky.

Keeping the stitches’ size consistent when choosing a crochet hook for an amigurumi project is the most important factor. Consider the yarn you’ll be using, practice different hook sizes to find your comfort zone, and read the pattern carefully for instructions.

By using a small hook, rather than the crochet hook recommended on the yarn’s label, you’ll be able to produce the tight stitches necessary for a successful amigurumi project.

What does tight stitch mean?

What are we talking about when we hear “tight stitch”? How exactly does a tight stitch help create durable and sturdy amigurumi?

It makes the project look better and prevents the stuffing from showing through the stitches. It is not the easiest thing to learn, and it does take some practice to master, but it is worth the effort.

Once you gain a bit of practice and experience, you’ll find that getting tight stitch becomes easier and more natural—allowing you to enjoy your crafting experience truly. The extra effort to create a tight stitch pays off with durable, sturdy, and time-resistant amigurumi pieces.

By learning to achieve the perfect tight stitch, you will be rewarded with a high-quality finished product that you can be proud of.

How to perfectly stuff an amigurumi?

Discovering the perfect balance between support and plushness is essential to creating the perfect amigurumi. Many first-time amigurumi makers find themselves struggling to get that ideal consistency.

For a perfectly-shaped stuffed animal, start with polyester polyfill, and add it in small, evenly-distributed pieces. This will take time, but the result will be worth it. When stuffing, make sure to get it nice and firm but not too hard; the body needs to be well stuffed so it stands when you attach the head and ears.

With this method, your crochet amigurumi will look amazing!

Tips and Tricks when working with Velvet yarn

To begin your amigurumi crochet project, tie a tight knot at the end of the yarn. Don’t forget to tie another knot when you’re finished and cut the yarn – it’ll ensure that everything stays secure.

What type of yarn is velvet yarn?

Velvet is a lush 100% polyester yarn that is extra soft.

What weight is Velvet Yarn?

Velvet yarn comes in weights, from thinner to super bulky ones, like the one I used for the crochet bunny pattern.

What is velvet yarn good for?

Because of the velvet yarn’s thickness, woolliness, and super softness, it is suitable for all types of crochet and knitting projects.

Velvet yarn is microfiber, ideal for baby and children’s products and soft toys such as the crochet bunny.

Is velvet yarn hard to crochet?

Depending on the type of velvet yarn you use, it can take some getting used to when crocheting with it. Some velvet yarns have a slippery texture. Additionally, using a stitch marker, such as a safety pin or yarn tail, can help you track your stitches. With practice, crocheting with velvet yarn can be a rewarding and satisfying experience.

The pattern is worked in continuous rounds that’s why it is better to use a stitch marker to indicate your first stitch and keep track of it.

Take a piece of yarn and insert the needle next to the safety eye from the back to the front and from right to left and pull the needle at the back side of the head. Then repeat the same for the other eye.

You will have two strands of yarn at the back side of the head, secure them with a knot and weave the tails in.

Repeat the same steps for the chicks, but this time pull the needle from the bottom of the head, secure it with a knot, and weave the tails in.

  1. I’m having a problem with the chain count for the head.
    I chain 11 chains like it says, sc in 2nd chain from hook, which leaves 10 chains left. Then sc in the next 8 chains, leaves 2 chains left. So where does the 2sc in the next 3 chains go?
    Thanks for pattern and help.

    Carol

    1. Hello, when you start with 11 chains and make sc in 2nd chain you have 9 chains left not 10. Then make sc in next 8. you have one last left and you will make 2 sc in it.

    1. No, we work in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to indicate your first st, so this way you know the beginning of the round and will not skip or get confused with your stitches.

    1. In rnd 1 for the head – it is not 2 sc in next 3 sts, it is 3 sc in next st and this way we have 22 sts.

  2. When I make the eyes indented this is very noticeable in the back of the head. It leaves divits.

  3. I solved my previous problem with stitches. I read the pattern by completing the stitches between the *’s and then repeating the sequence the number of times shown. By doing this I was adding an additional sequence each time. Sorry everyone.

  4. Hello, this bunny is adorable! I have 2 questions. What row do I insert the eyes? Also about stuffing, how much do you recommend stuffing the head? Are the ears and arms stufffed? Thank you so much for your help!
    Lea

    1. I inserted the eyes 8-10 rows before I finish the head! I stuffed the hands and feet’s bottom. Not entire leg or hand. For the head make sure that the part where we finish the body and start the head is stuffed well. This will prevent the head from falling. NJ.
