According to Wikipedia, amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. . .

Amigurumi are typically cute animals (such as bears, rabbits, cats, dogs, etc.). Amigurumi can be knitted, but the vast majority of amigurumi are crocheted."


Since I have crocheted for years this looks like fun. The animals are all cute (or as they would say in Japan "kawaii" according to Wikipedia). I found a link here to free patterns for making amigurumi. Let me know if you make any (better yet, send me a photo and I'll display it on this blog.

Since this post is all about Japanses "things" I thought just for fun, if you want to see what your name would look like in Japanese click here.
