Crochet a Toft Amigurumi Animal with Zoe Bateman


Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. In this fun class you'll learn the amigurumi method of crochet working on the Toft animal kit of your choice! You'll learn how to start and finish each body part and how to sew them all together along with how to read an amigurumi crochet pattern. We'll also review your pattern with you to help you understand any special stitches or techniques you'll need to know to complete your chosen design. This class is perfect for students who have mastered crochet basics and want to try creating three-dimensional amigurumi designs. Everything is included in your class fee and is yours to take home.

You can choose from the following beginner-friendly kits (see them on our website here): Polar Bear, Sheep, Bunny, Cat, Labrador, Weimaraner, Hippo, Rhino, Elephant or Gorilla. Please list your first three choices when booking and we will save your kit for you! Otherwise, you will have a selection of the kits we stock to choose from on class evening.
