What are you most proud of? This was the first pattern I published! What advice would you give someone starting this project? The Ami'mater is stitched in amigurumi style crochet, constructed with single crochet stitches done in the round. You will need to be able to make an adjustable base ring, single crochet, increase, and decrease. Using a crochet hook that is at least a size or two smaller than recommended for the yarn you choose helps result in a tighter stitch, which allows for fuller stuffing.
