Amigurumi Dress Up Doll



Are you hooked but don’t know where to start? Then this class is for you! Students will learn the basics of amigurumi, learning to shape little creatures, creating different facial expressions, and dressing them up. By the end of the classes you will be able to go home with this cute, little dress up girl and you will also be able to make many, many more amigurumis.

PREREQUISITE SKILLS: 

Students should know how to crochet even, single stitches and have some experience with crocheting


CROCHET SKILLS TO BE TAUGHT:

  • pattern reading

  • magic loop

  • crocheting in a spiral 

  • working with multiples of six

  • using stitch markers to keep track of your rounds (which are actually spirals)

  • increasing stitches 

  • invisibly decreasing stitches

  • shaping

  • stuffing your amigurumi without lumps 

  • make amigurumi life easier with pieces of felt 

  • stitching together two- and three-dimensional pieces


MATERIALS:

Pattern Eliza - Dress Up Doll - Crochet Pattern by {Amour Fou} 

 (Available on etsy)

  • Yarn: worsted weight (DK/8 ply) or cotton yarn, (for example Uptown Worsted).  You will need one color for your her skin and white for her underwear and the stripes of the top, contrasting color for the other stripes on her top. Then choose the colors you prefer for her hair and the different pieces of her wardrobe.  

  • Food for thought: The thicker your yarn the bigger your amigurumi will be, also, the thicker the yarn, the more will be needed to complete the project.

  • Hook:  size D (3.25mm) hook (The hook should be about 2 sizes smaller than the one recommended on the label of your yarn)

  • Blunt tip sewing needle

  • Split ring markers (I highly recommend cocoknits colorful split ring markers as they are perfect for amigurumi)

  • A few pins to secure your pieces while sewing them together

  • Scissors

  • Pencil or pen to scribble notes on your pattern

Instructor Bio:
Hi there, my name is Ivonne and I am a German expat currently living in Mechanicsville, VA. I have been knitting and crocheting since I was a child, taught by many talented women in my family and in school. I enjoy knitting and crocheting because I love to create. I am passionate about all the fiber arts but my favorite "child" is definitely amigurumi, which is the Japanese word for "crochet doll/creature". I love creating colorful, happy one-of-a-kind items because the world is already crowded with gray and dull off-the-conveyor-belt-monotony. I would love to share my knowledge with you. Let's make something vibrant and unique!
