Before you begin

  • This amigurumi/plush is worked in continuous rounds. Mark the beginning of each round with a stitch marker.
  • Use the “magic ring” when starting rounds. There are many youtube videos teaching how to make a magic ring or magic circle.
  • Gauge is not important in this project as long as you are consistent with your tension.
  • TIP: Always change colors in the stitch BEFORE the color change by pulling the new color through the 2 loops, thus beginning with the correct color on your hook.
  • Exact colors used are listed in italics in the “Supplies” section. Some photos will not be the correct color.
  • This project is made with all sc stitches unless otherwise specified.
