Amigurumi: Design Your Own Monster

When you think of "cute," you probably think of puppies, kittens or bunnies. We think of amigurumi monsters! In this class, you'll learn every step of the process to design and crochet your own cuddly, super-adorable amigurumi creature.  Use a range of different shapes, including circles, cylinders and spheres, to create various monster parts, like heads, arms and legs. Combine these parts in numerous ways to create truly unique monsters. The secret to success is smart planning and good design — you'll learn both in this class. Also included are eight monster patterns designed by Stacey. Make them just as she does, or customize them to make your own!

Even a rookie crocheter will enjoy this class, while experienced crocheters will love the four included patterns - a sturdy bear, winsome deer, mischievous raccoon and beautiful bluebird.
