How to Attach Amigurumi Arms and Legs with Single Crochet – video tutorial

How to Attach Amigurumi Arms and legs with Single Crochet - video tutorial from Shiny Happy World

Want to learn how to make adorable crocheted stuffed animals with an easy online workshop – totally free?

Sign up for Let’s Make Amigurumi here. You’ll learn how to get started, the tools and supplies you’ll need, and how to make an easy amigurumi from start to finish using simple crochet stitches.

It’s a fun, inexpensive, and totally portable craft. You can do it!

Sometimes you attach amigurumi limbs after you’ve made all the parts using whipstitch and a tapestry needle. (There’s a tutorial here showing that method.)

This is necessary if the attachment runs across several rows of stitching, but if the attachment is running WITH a row of stitching, you can attach limbs while you crochet the body – all in one nifty step!

I love attaching arms and legs this way because it’s super easy AND super secure AND it looks really nice.

There’s a post here with text and photo instructions, but here’s a video to give you an additional view of the process if you like.

See how easy that is?

Happy stitching!
