this is going to be a crochet ball.
what type of animals or creatures will you make out of your crochet ball? i am using 4 ply red heart yarn and a size H 5 millimeter crochet hook. take the loose end wrap it over your main strand now you have a loop. take the loop fold it over your main strand. put your hook below the center strand back up the opposite side. this creates the slip knot. work a chain three.
join with the beginning chain. putting your hook right through the first chain. wrap the yarn over pull it through, pull through the loop on your hook. and that joins your chain into a ring. work 9 single crochet through the loop. and i'm putting my hook right through the center of the loop. working around the chain. we will sew the tail in a little bit later. round two, will be working two single crochet in each stitch around. we will be working in the continual round.
and that is by putting your hook right below the two loops at the top of the stitch. working the first single crochet. we will work a second single crochet in the same stitch. and this is the increase. we will be working two single crochet in each stitch around. for a total of eighteen.

Thank you for joining me on my crochet journey and for watching my videos. Now most of these crochet tutorials can use standard on the shelf crochet, knitting yarn or thread. The supplies I use most often are from Lion Brand, Red Heart, and Caron yarn. The tools I use are Fiskar and Westcott scissors. Susan Bates Tapestry Needle. Boye Crochet Hooks. The great thing with YouTube is watching video on demand at any time of the day. For those of you with mobile devices, you can crochet at the beach, park or during breaks from work. Some of the video available are hats, scarves, afghans, lace doilies, baby blankets and stitches. Crochet can be compared to meditation and is a great way to stay focused.

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. Amigurumi are typically animals, but can include artistic renderings or inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features, as is typical in Japanese culture.
While amigurumi have been popular in Japan for several decades, amigurumi first started appealing to the masses in other countries, especially in the West, in 2003. By 2006, amigurumi were reported to be some of the most popular items on Etsy, an online craft marketplace, where they typically sold for $10 to $100. Since then popularity has continued to increase.
