Have you ever heard the word "Amigurumi" and wondered what it is?
Amigurumi is a Japanese word consisting of two parts, namely ami (編) meaning crochet or knit, and nuigurumi (ぬいぐるみ) which literally translates as "small, stuffed doll".
These days, amigurumi refers to more than dolls, it can be anything from crocheted animals, crocheted food, and various other objects.
Amigurumi has become so popular because it is fun! The objects are often very cute and playful. The craft is versatile and highly creative, and many people design their own objects once they have made a few amigurumi.
As with any crochet or knitting craft, creating amigurumi is not just fun but also relaxing- no wonder this is such a popular hobby!
