Which loop to use when attaching…

Which Loop Do You Use When Attaching Amigurumi Pieces? - tips from FreshStitches and Shiny Happy World

Yay, it’s Tuesday… which means it’s time to share another amigurumi-making tip! This week, I’m answering a question sent in to me by Mary:

When attaching parts do you sew into both loops on the piece to be added? Which do you recommend?

Excellent question! And I have two answers.

The first answer is that it really doesn’t matter whether you attach your animal’s pieces using both loops or just one. Neither way results in a significantly different look. For the best results, you should be consistent throughout the piece about which one you use.

Okay, now the second answer is about what I do. I actually only use the back loops when attaching pieces:

There’s no real method to my madness- I think that, since I crochet through the back loop, it’s easier for me to attach through the back loop!

So, there you go… either way you want to do it will result in a happy amigurumi! Hope you have a great Tuesday!
