Amigurumi crochet patterns may seem difficult to the novice, but the truth is, they are fairly easy to complete. Sure, some are much more intricate and would take a lot of time, but overall, I’ve found amigurumi to be easier than expected. This week, I have gathered the most popular amigurumi toy patterns from Etsy to share with you!
Crochet Amigurumi Toy Patterns
Whether you are looking for that special pattern for a gift, or just trying something new, I’ve gathered some incredible options for you with this list. Amigurumi is the art of crocheting into shapes and stuffing the shape to create a 3D object. Most often, this is used for animals or dolls, but can be used for any number of items. Below, I am featuring the most popular animals, dolls, and pop culture character patterns currently on Etsy.
