Course content

Crochet toys (or Amigurumi in Japanese) is the art of crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. Amigurumi are reported to be some of the most popular items on Etsy, an online craft marketplace. Crochet toys are usually worked one section at a time and then sewed or crocheted together, to create your finished project. In this workshop we will create an owl, but will also discuss other patterns.
