General Tips & Techniques:

* Be sure to keep yarn tension firm and consistent throughout your work.

* At the end of each row, I have given the number of stitches you should have. This is just a guide. If you are off by 1 or 2 stitches, don’t worry about it. Amigurumi is very forgiving.


Magic Ring: Leaving a long tail, ch. 4, join with sl st into first chain to form a ring. Work 10 sc into center ring and around tail. Do not join. Pull the tail to close the hole in the ring. Mark the beginning of the row. From this point on, you will be working in the round.

Putting Ears Together:

Hold one outer ear and one inner ear together with right sides facing out. Using fuzzy yarn (main color), 1 sc in each sc and row all the way around to join the two ear pieces together, tucking yarn ends in between the two ear pieces as you go. Join with sl st and end, leaving a long tail for sewing. Do the same for the other ear.


Finishing: Sew ears in place. Sew feet in place. Stuff head and body firmly. Sew bottom to bottom of body. Embroider facial features and belly button if desired.


Tail: Using both yarns together, make a large pompom approx. 4” across and sew into place. To make the pompom: Holding both yarns together, wrap them around your hand 25 times. Keeping the yarn looped, slide it off your hand. Take a long piece of the thinner (2nd color) yarn and tie it around the middle of the loops you just made. Cut the ends of the loops and trim the pompom.


Enjoy your Fuzzle.
