I really love making amigurumi that stand on two legs. Some of my favorite patterns use this basic shape and it’s really easy to do. (There’s a video here showing how.)
But when I designed this giraffe I wanted him to stand on four legs.
There are a lot of very different methods out there to do this, but all of them felt a little trickier than I wanted for beginners, so I came up with my own method. Here’s a video showing how. . .
It works really well – and it’s pretty easy! Now that I’ve got this new tool in my toolbox, I’ve got all kinds of ideas for standing four-legged cuties. 🙂
That giraffe is the May 2019 Ami Club pattern. Members will find the new pattern in their accounts tomorrow. If you’re not a member yet, join the club here!
