A complete guide in making a bunny, a bear, or a cat in amigurumi style
When you go through this course, you’ll come out on the other side with a brand new stuffed amigurumi animal - but once you know how to make them, it’s pretty much a guarantee you’re going to make just more than one.

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of making small stuffed animals by knitting or crocheting. In this course, Annette Corsino-Blair guides you through the process of making a bunny, a bear, or a cat in amigurumi style. Annette teaches how to do single crochet and double crochet, so if you’re just beginning your crochet journey, this course is a perfect match for you. But even if you’re a seasoned crochet expert, how can you resist getting the down-low on how to create these cutesy creatures? You’ll also learn how to crochet in a round to create the body of the little critters, with Annette demonstrating simply and easily in close-up visuals on how to complete each step. If sewing seems intimidating to you, when Annette shows you how to tie it all together, you’ll wonder why you ever worried. She lets you know how to check alignment and wrap up the project, and why it’s important to pay attention to every detail when both crocheting and sewing. This course is broken down into seven sections - an introduction, how to make the head, snout, legs, arms, body, and how to stuff and set it all together. In each section she clearly lays out just how to make each section of your animal from head to toe. After you take this class, you’ll have the foundation you need to make endless other projects. When all the parts come together, you’ll have the cutest amigurumi animals to use as decorations, gifts, or toys.
