AMY-gurumi CAL

click here for all the Amigurumi kits

July 29-August 12, 2023
Amigurumi is a lot of fun to make as what looks like a strange shape or even multiple parts come together to make an animal, a doll, or another toy. Most of the time your finished piece is small, but there is no size limit for amigurumi.
We just received dozens of the cutest Amigurumi kits, so we figured a CAL was in order. And since Amy is leading this, we named it after her. 😊 These kits are all different, but they all include all the materials needed to complete one little crocheted doll or animal. Even the crochet hook is included!

Skill level is basic, but we are suggesting participants to be comfortable with crochet before joining. Basic skills such as chain, single crochet, and slip stitch should be learned. Familiarity with half double and double crochet are also suggested. Here’s a hint if you are newer…the Halloween kits are more difficult.
You will learn shaping, increases, decreases, finishing off in the round, and other skills as determined by the kit you choose. Bonus: benefit from Amy’s research, and find out how to make a neck stable. Not your own, but the ami’s neck! AMY-gurumi CAL is free to participate in, but as with all classes, KALs, and CALs, you must purchase one of our Amigurumi kits specifically for this along to participate.

We will meet twice for Amy to guide you through the Amigurumi crochet process! If you need help after the second meeting, no problem -- we will work it out!
   July 29 from 1-3p

We will also post any tips we come across in our Facebook Group “Threadbender Yarn Shop –Alongs”. And we encourage everyone to share pictures and questions.
