Crocheted amigurumi projects are not only super fun to stitch, but they are perfect for beginner crocheters and experts alike! These little stuffies are super “kawaii” (meaning “cute” in Japanese) and are often easy to make, using only single crochet with basic increases and decreases. In this video, crochet enthusiast Mister Domestic demonstrates how to make his kawaii bunny toy pattern.
For this project, there are several simple shapes to be created:
- Small sphere
- Larger sphere for head
- 4 small cylinders for arms and legs
- 2 flat oblong ovals for ears
- 1 tiny sphere for tail
All the shapes start with the magic ring, which Mister Domestic demonstrates. He goes on to make all the parts for the bunny toy. Once the parts are complete, he explains how they are sewn together. He uses whip stitch to attach all the pieces, making sure they are stuffed with polyfill stuffing before closing the pieces and sewing them together. Once the bunny is assembled, the ends can easily be woven in by bringing them through the stuff animal and trimming them. This allows for the yarn end to go inside the toy, which finishes off the project neatly.
