Amigurumi Gnomes

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting or knitting small, stuffed animals and characters. In this class, we will be focusing on the crochet side of things by making some adorable gnomes (Kras & Smar). You will learn the basics of Amigurumi-style crochet construction plus plenty of tips and tricks for making successful stuffed animals and characters. “Kawaii” (cute) + “ami” (crocheted/knitted) + “nuigurumi” (stuffed doll) = Kawaii Amigurumi (cute crochet/knit stuffies)!

I will be providing full copies of the Kras & Smar (crocheted gnomes) pattern to all students.
