Should I yarn over or under amigurumi?
Normally when you make a single crochet, you insert the hook, yarn over, pull up your loop, yarn over and pull it through two loops to finish the stitch. In amigurumi many people replace both the yarn overs with ‘yarn unders’, where you grab the yarn with the hook on top.
Does it matter which way you turn your work in crochet?
It may not seem like it matters, but turning in crochet ought to be done consistently each time. That is, you should be turning the same way every time you turn to the next side. The turn creates a neat edge, which is important if you are joining two pieces or seaming garments.
Which way do you crochet yarn over?
Wrap the yarn from back to front over the hook (or hold the yarn still and maneuver the hook). This movement of the yarn over the hook is used over and over again in crochet and is usually called “yarn over”, abbreviated as “yoh”.
What’s the difference between crochet and amigurumi?
Amigurumi is essentially the same as crochet, only it refers specifically to the process of making 3D toys. Crochet uses a range of techniques, whereas amigurumi almost always involves working in the round, making spheres which are then stuffed to form the limbs of some adorable little animals.
