Are Amigurumi dolls easy to make?

Absolutely! Most amigurumi dolls are easy to crochet because you will use only a few basic stitches to make them. Here is what you will need to know (and to have) to start making crochet dolls.

  • Gather a few basic supplies to make Amigurumi. Such as yarn, crochet hooks, stuffing fiber, and safety eyes.
  • Learn the crochet magic circle. It’s the first thing you need to learn to start making crochet dolls.
  • Master the single crochet stiches in a spiral/continuous rounds technique.
  • Practice single crochet increases and decreases, and how to stuff Amigurumi. The best way to practice Amigurumi is with a crochet sphere.

See blog this post for more tips and tricks for Amigurumi for beginners and to learn how to crochet a sphere.

What are the best yarns for Amigurumi dolls?

Light (#3) to worsted (#4) weight yarns, either cotton or acrylic, are ideal for Amigurumi dolls. And the best fiber contents are the soft and durable ones.

Either natural or synthetic fibers will work fine and there is a wide range to choose from. Here is what I recommend:

Materials to Crochet Amigurumi Dolls

Most patterns for dolls require only a handful of supplies. And the best part is that you only have to buy some of them once, such as scissors and tapestry needles.

Here is what you will be using often to crochet dolls.

  • Crochet hooks in smaller sizes, usually up to 4.00 mm (US G). This Clover Amour Hook set is my favorite.
  • Stitch Markers are a must for Amigurumi, you will need them every time.
  • Good quality polyester stuffing fiber, such as Poly-fil, is the best because it holds the shape longer. And it’s easy to care for.
  • Safety eyes in many sizes.
  • Tapestry needles, I like the ones with the bent tips, they are easier to slide through small stitches.
  • Small and sharp Scissors.
  • Beeswax crayons are great for blushing your dolls cheeks.
