What is Amigurumi?

Posted by Miffy on January 22, 2020

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting. The word is a portmanteau, derived from two Japanese words. The first ami, meaning "crocheted or knitted", & the second nuigurumi, which means "stuffed doll". Combine them & you get amigurumi.

What is Amigurumi

Amigurumi usually is crocheted from yarn or thread. It can be created as a single piece but more often multiple segments are combined to create one. Once sewn, they can then be stuffed.
