Description

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 designing and crocheting 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 creative and unique monsters. The secret to creative crocheting 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!

NOTE: If you’d like to purchase only the DVD for this class, you may do so through this link. (Please note, any class PDF materials are not on the DVD itself. You must have streaming access to download those materials associated with the class.)
