DIY Amigurumi How to Crochet: Single Crochet Stitch Amigurumi
The single crochet stitch is the most commonly used stitch when crocheting amigurumi. Often you will have several rows entirely devoted to this stitch because it is a building stitch that doesn’t increase or decrease the shape you are working on, but rather builds the piece when all you are looking for is a continuation or elongation of the shape you are making.
I’ve included the octopus character I created the pattern for, based on the stuffed animal character, Otto, from author and illustrator, Olivier Dunrea’s children’s books about a series of goslings. Otto is the octopus stuffed pal of the character, Gideon, in the stories. You can find these books and more on Amazon: You can also follow Olivier Dunrea and his writing life over on his blog:
