What is amigurumi?
In my early days of crocheting, when i took an interest in the crochet animals, i kept hearing the term crochet amigurumi, it never made sense and i never understod what i was. So in short, Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting or knitting yarn creatures. It comes from two Japanese words: “ami”, meaning “crocheted or knitted”, and “nuigurumi”, which means “stuffed doll”.
There’s a lot of variety when it comes to amigurumi – you can make your plushie as big or as small as you’d like. Still, most crochet helo kitty amigurumi patterns you will find are for small creatures like crochet key chains.

Stitches and techniques to master
There are a few stitches and techniques that you’ll find in nearly every amigurumi pattern. Here are the most popular ones that you will see.
Many patterns use short single crochet stitches to keep the fabric tight and close. You don’t want any of that stuffing popping out of your squishy creature.
