Understanding Amigurumi Crochet

Amigurumi, a Japanese art form that combines the words "ami" (meaning crocheted or knitted) and "nuigurumi" (meaning stuffed doll), refers to the creation of small, stuffed creatures or objects using crochet or knitting techniques. These adorable creations often feature cute animals, beloved characters, or even inanimate objects brought to life.

Amigurumi can be traced back to the early 20th century in Japan, where it gained popularity as a technique to create dolls and toys. Traditionally, amigurumi dolls were made from yarn scraps and stuffed with cotton, making them affordable and accessible to everyone.
