Tips for crocheting Amigurumis πŸ˜‰

  1. 🧡 Choose Quality Materials: The quality of your materials directly impacts the final result. Opt for soft and durable yarns, and needles that suit your knitting style. Remember, your amigurumis deserve the best!
  2. πŸ“ Know Your Gauge: Before diving into the project, take time to understand your knitting tension. Making a small test square will help you adjust the size and achieve a perfect amigurumi.
  3. πŸ“– Dive into the Pattern: Before you start knitting, carefully read through the entire pattern. Familiarize yourself with each step and make sure you understand all the instructions. This prior knowledge will make you feel more confident during the process.
  4. πŸ“ Use Stitch Markers: Marking the beginning of each round with a stitch marker is key. This not only helps you follow the pattern more easily but also prevents errors and confusion.
  5. 🌈 Explore with Colors: The color palette is your canvas! Don’t be afraid to experiment and play with unexpected combinations. Colorful amigurumis are more fun and expressive.
  6. 🧼 Block Your Creations with Care: After completing your amigurumi, blocking is essential. This process smooths out the details and defines the shape, giving a professional touch to your creations. Remember, crochet is more than a hobby; it’s an art form. Enjoy every stitch and create magic with your own hands! πŸ’–βœ¨ Happy knitting! 🌸🌟
Head

Let’s start with the head of the swan, working from the front of the nose towards the back of the head. Starting with pink yarn:
Rnd 1: Make 6 sc in a magic ring = 6
Rnd 2: 2 sc, inc x 2, 2 sc = 8
Rnd 3: 3 sc, inc x 2, 3 sc = 10
Rnd 4: 4 sc, inc x 2, 4 sc = 12
Rnd 5: 5 sc, inc x 2, 5 sc = 14
Rnd 6: 6 sc, inc x 2, 6 sc = 16
Rnd 7: 7 sc, inc x 2, 7 sc = 18
Rnd 8: 8 sc, inc x 2, 8 sc = 20
Rnd 9: 9 sc, inc x 2, 9 sc = 22
Rnd 10: 10 sc, inc x 2, 10 sc = 24

Switch to light grey yarn:
Rnd 11: (3 sc, inc) x 6 = 30
Rnd 12: sc in each st around

Switch to white yarn:
Rnd 13: sc in each st around

Work only 6 sc in this round, the last stitch in this round will be the new beginning of rounds from now on.
Rnd 14: (2 sc, inc) x 6, 12 sc = 36
Rnd 15: (3 sc, inc) x 6, 12 sc = 42
Rnd 16: (4 sc, inc) x 6, 12 sc = 48
Rnd 17: (5 sc, inc) x 6, 12 sc = 54
Rnd 18: (6 sc, inc) x 6, 12 sc = 60
Rnd 19: sc in each st around

Place the eyes between rounds 18 and 19, leaving 16 stitches between them. The first eye is placed before the 2nd increase between rounds 18 and 19, the second eye is placed after the 4th increase. If you want the eye sunk, do not place it until round 33.
Rnd 19: (8 sc, dec) x 6 = 54
Rnd 20: sc in each st around
Rnd 21: (7 sc, dec) x 6 = 48
Rnd 22: (6 sc, dec) x 6 = 42
Rnd 23: (5 sc, dec) x 6 = 36

Now for the eyes. Stuff the head firmly. Cut a long piece of yarn and remove the eyes. Place the needle in the holes where the eyes were.

Continuation of the head

Thread the needle and, in a hole next to the eye, go back and forth between the two eye holes. Gently pull the thread after passing through each hole. Do this around 3 times on each side until you achieve the desired look. Refer to the photos for assistance.
Rnd 24: (4 sc, dec) x 6 = 30
Rnd 25: (3 sc, dec) x 6 = 24
Rnd 26: (2 sc, dec) x 6 = 18
Rnd 27: (sc, dec) x 6 = 12
Rnd 28: dec x 6 = 6
Cut the yarn and sew the hole closed.
