My first amigurumi: a snail from Happy Berry Crochet’s pattern
My first amigurumi: a snail from Happy Berry Crochet’s pattern happyberrycrochet.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/crochet-micro-mi... on her blog.
Great fun, though clearly I have stuff to improve!
1) I’m not finding magic circles easy – I need to practise them.
2) I couldn’t use the 1.45mm hook US size 3 yarn combination recommend in the pattern; I’m not sure if the thread was just too large or I am just not yet skilled enough for a tiny needle. Rowan sienna 4 ply said US size 2-3 on the label but also recommended a 3mm hook, which is what I ended up using.
3) I found working the body tube very fiddly and I think I made mistakes there and added stitches. Whatever I did wrong it is much wider than it should be.
