Any time you need to make your amigurumi bigger, you’ll use single crochet increase. It’s super easy! You just stitch twice in one stitch.
Sometimes you’ll see this written in instructions as “inc” and you decide where to put the increases, but our patterns usually spell it out. If we want you to crochet increase, we’ll say “sc twice in next st.” We like to make things clear and easy. 🙂
Want to practice how to crochet increase (and decrease)? Pick up a super easy pattern.
Jay the Bird is one of the easiest – great for beginners.
Want something just as simple, but a little smaller? This bird and bunny are adorable!
They’re a lot smaller (so you won’t get in as much practice on those crochet increases) but you’ll finish faster!
These squishy monsters are also really simple – and the pattern is free!
Aren’t they cute?
