All amigurumi consist of different kinds of shapes,so knowing how to make these is important for both beginners and advanced crocheters. Making shapes is a good way to practice crochet before making a ‘real’ doll.
But shapes are also important for people who want to start making their own patterns. When I make a new pattern, I start by sketching the figure and figure out what shapes to make. For example, this is the sketch of my rooster:
You can see how this rooster is made up of a lot of spheres. So if people ask me for pattern making tips, I always say: know your shapes!
So I in the next couple of weeks I will share some patterns for different shapes 🙂
