“Judge me by my size, do you?”Yoda
So what’s amigurumi, you ask?
Amigurumi is the Japanese art of making stuffed creatures using crochet methods. Crochet, not knitting, is the preferred method due to the creation of thick fabric that holds a 3D shape better.
Making your own Yoda amigurumi requires some crochet experience: spiral or magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, how to make an increase and an invisible decrease. The skills required vary by pattern.
“Do. Or do not. There is no try.”Yoda
