Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals. Learn the basics of amigurumi by making this cute, quickly crocheted bird or dragon. Kira will have instructions as well as stuffing for your toy and felt for the bird’s beak. A bird crocheted with worsted weight yarn will be approximately 4″ tall and a dragon crocheted with aran weight yarn will be approximately 7″ tall. Amigurumi toys are all the rage right now, and a great way to improve your crochet skills on a small project. This is a great skill building class for beginning crocheters, plus you get to have a fun friend to take home!
