Crochet an Amigurumi Shooting Star
Your crochet skills will be nothing short of stellar after this class with Amigurumi designer Vincent Green-Hite of Knot Bad. Amigurumi is the Japanese art form of crocheting or knitting dolls, and Vincent teaches you how to crochet an astronomically adorable shooting star. He goes over the foundations of Amigurumi like making a magic ring, working the single crochet stitch, increasing, and decreasing, and you'll see how combining basic shapes - balls, cones, and tubes - can result in super fun characters. You'll also get all of Vincent's tips for sewing, stuffing, and embroidering facial features, and your finished shooting star doll will be a cuddly reminder that your ability to crochet is out of this world.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • Worsted weight yarn in Yellow, Blue, Pink, Black (Vincent uses Big Twist Value Worsted Yarn)
