Amigurumi Projects and Patterns: Crochet Trends

When it comes to crochet, you can make a lot of different stuff. From elegant shawls and stylish scarves to hip accessories and tasteful home decor. But if you’re looking to make something cute, soft, huggable, and sure to get people asking all kinds of questions, then you’ve got to check out Amigurumi! Japanese in origin, Amigurumi is a specific kind of crochet that has the crafter crocheting creatures then stuffing them, which results in a toy, or piece of decor. They frequently have a whimsical, almost cartoonish quality that kids and adults both love. Here at Craftsy, we can’t get enough of Amigurumi, which is why have two classes dedicated to it, Amigurumi: Woodland Animals and Amigurumi: Design Your Own Monster. Apparently, many of you members of our Craftsy community share our love for Amigurumi, as you’ve been uploading absolutely awesome projects. In this post, we wanted to feature some of our favorite Amigurumi projects, and share some excellent Amigurumi patterns from our very own Craftsy Pattern Marketplace to help you get started!

First, have a look at these projects:

These are super cute amigurumi and I’m really glad you shared them! I wondered if you might be able to add the names of the designers and makers, though. They certainly deserve the credit.
