Hooray! It’s another ‘Tip Tuesday’! Today, I’m going to talk about how to attach a folded ear when making amigurumi.
Okay, let’s assume that you’ve crocheted the ear as instructed. The attaching instructions say:
Attach ears. To do so, flatten ears along opening, and fold in half.
To flatten the ears, just squish the ear flat (you can read this blog post for more details), as pictured.
Of course, this isn’t the only way to do it! Cynthia Sickler (from Demonstrative Bears) crochets the sides of the folded piece together, first. This means there are less stitches to fuss about when attaching (genius!). You can also stitch the sides of the ear together first, then attach.
As long as your amigurumi turns out cute… it doesn’t matter! I just wanted to show you how I do it, in case it helps a couple of folks out there. Hope this tip has been helpful, and come back next week for another one!
