Handy Dandy Amigurumi links

Don’t reinvent the wheel!

When I first started out crocheting three dimensional objects, I was pretty stubborn and thought I could just figure out how to shape them on my own. The end result was not only sad looking, but it also cost me weeks of my life doing and redoing the darn thing. It was supposed to be a crochetdermy Dr. Seuss type animal head, but it was so ugly and misshaped that it never made it onto any wall…

Later on, I conceded and started looking around the Internet, only to find out that there are a lot of crazy talented and generous crocheters out there, and that it really does not hurt to take advice and maybe follow a pattern that someone with a lot more experience has written before me.

Here are some of the most useful links for amigurumi beginners
