The West Coast Mom writes a wonderful blog on many different sorts of crafting, which, luckily for us, includes crochet.
I found this tutorial, concise, easy to listen to and some great tips that will make your crochet life easier and quicker.
TIP#1 – Don’t close your magic ring straight away, wait until you’ve completed a couple of rounds, it will make it easier to find your first stitch.
TIP#2 – Make sure you use a stitch marker, then you will know exactly where a new round starts. This is great it you have lots of interruptions in the middle of your crafting!
TIP#3 – Use a round or row counter, so you don’t get lost. This will help keep you on track.
TIP#4 – Complete any embroidery that your amigurumi needs sooner rather than later. It’s so much easier if you don’t leave it right to the end of the project. You’ll find it so much easier to hide all those loose ends!
TIP#5 – Don’t be over generous when stuffing your amigurumi toy, it will easily distort the shape.
Make sure that you also take a look at the photographs and written tutorial, if you prefer this method of learning.
