Hi Everybody! and welcome to the Crochet Along via Craft Tutorials. I thought it would be way easier to get ourselves organised here since it is getting a little busy at Craft Tutorials. So we have a big majority of votes for an Amigurumi-Along.  Awesome! I don’t think we need to wait for the poll to close most of the votes are Amigurumi so let’s go!

So this is what Amigurumi means: “knitted or crocheted doll” in Japanese. They’re the simplest of simple, worked in the round in single crochet.

If you are completely new with Amigurumi have a look at the Amigurumi info links but don’t get too hung op on it. In the end we are here to have fun right?! 

I have already started putting a huge amount of links to free Amigurumi patterns in the right-hand side bar so have a look through that. If you find other great patterns please leave a comment and I will add a link. If you would like to make up your own pattern or are more of a free-form crocheter that’s fine with me too.

Now first of all I have sent everybody that left a comment on Craft Tutorials an invite from WordPress to join. If you already have a wordpress account you will be able to start posting immediately you should have received an e-mail from me aswell. If you have just discovered us and you would like to join, GREAT, send me an e-mail land_office@xtra.co.nz with the name you want other people to see and I will set you up. Also please have a little look at the Rules page at the top, they are pretty basic and if there is anything anybody would like to add to that please leave a comment.

I am also looking for another editor for the crochet along site I am already pretty busy with Craft Tutorials so please let me know if you would like to help. <Thanks June>

Another thing I mentioned in my post on Craft Tutorials is if you wanted to have a deadline for this particular Amigurumi Crochet Along? I am thinking 6 weeks should be enough? So this crochet along would finish on October 15th the next one 1st of December etc. Unless you are all having too much fun and we can agree to just keep going… 🙂

That’s enough reading for now, let’s get this Amigurumi Crochet Along started!!
