You didn't get a hippopotamus for Christmas? Let's make one! Students will learn the basics of amigurumi, learn to shape little creatures, create different facial expressions, and dress up their creations. By the end of the course you will be able to go home with this cute rhino or hippo. Amigurumi, a popular type of crochet, is a portmanteau of two Japanese terms: ami, meaning crocheted or knitted; and nuigurumi, a stuffed doll. It often takes the form of an animal or fantastical creature with an aesthetic that's best described as kawaii or cute. This makes amigurumi ideal for kids or anyone that likes button noses and rosy cheeks.

Class Policies

Center of the Yarniverse appreciates you for your interest in taking one of our classes.

A class will proceed with a minimum of 3 students, and attendance will be capped at 6 or 7 students (depending on the class). To ensure that a class will proceed, please sign up as soon as possible.


To sign up for a class, register online, call us at (804)362-7800 or sign up in the store. If you are interested in a class that is full, we will place you on the waitlist. Waitlisted registrants will be contacted in the order they were received. Unless otherwise stated in the class description, all students are expected to arrive to the first class on time and with supplies ready to go. If you have yarn that needs to be wound, it should be done prior to the first class.

Payment for class should be made at the time you sign up. If you call we will collect payment over the phone.

Student Supply Discount

Center of the Yarniverse is happy to offer a discount of 10% off yarn for the class. It is expected that the yarn purchased is the weight and quantity that applies to the class project. Other supplies, to include needles and patterns, are exempt from the discount unless otherwise stated.

Cancellation/Rescheduling Policy

If the minimum for a class is not met, your payment will be refunded. Determining whether or not a class will proceed due to low attendance will be determined by the instructor and/or the shop.

If inclement weather or reasons beyond the shop's control affect a particular class date, the class will be rescheduled.

A registered student may cancel a class 10 days prior to the first class and receive a full refund. If you must cancel less than 10 days prior, you will receive a refund if your slot is taken by a waitlisted registrant. Every effort will be made to assist anyone in this situation to receive a refund.

Private Lessons

We will make every attempt to assist with basic knitting troubles during regular shop hours; however, the assistance is based on staff availability and is on a case by case basis. Our instructors do offer private lessons for $30/hour. Scheduling is based on the instructor’s schedule and availability. It is possible that the instruction may occur when the shop is traditionally closed.
