Super Amigurumi Pattern

What are you going to put into practise using the Super Amigurumi YarnWoman pattern created by Maria from De Estraperlo using Katia Alabama? Here are some amigurumi tips and techniques that you are going to learn with this project:

  1. Work the head and body in one piece.
  2. Add details to give personality to your amigurumi.
  3. Insert pipe cleaners into the arms and legs so you can achieve postures and movement.
  4. Create a spectacular hair style starting from scratch.
  5. Sew the pieces together, using pins, without being afraid.
  6. Create volume and overlap pieces whilst working in the back of loop or front of loop.
  7. And of course, increase, decrease, change colour, attach eyes, fill…
