I am honored to have Stacey from Fresh Stitches to be today’s guest tutor. She is going to show us how to substitute yarns in Amigurumi and also how to choose the correct hook for the yarn. I have touched a little about this topic in my recent amigurumi post of How To Amigurumi and today, Stacey will bring you to a detail tutorial about the yarn, hook and how to substitute yarns for changing the size of your amigurumi without modifying the pattern.
Stacey is the author of the popular Cuddly Crochet: Adorable Toys, Hats, & More I recommended in “How To Amigurumi”. You will find most of her patterns are suitable to make into soft toys for small kids. There are 3 ways to get Stacey’s pattern: 1.) purchase her book for the amigurumi pattern, 2) go to her online store to buy her latest amigurumi pattern, or 3) download the free e-book for beginner.
