Throughout the course, explore how to breathe life into long-lasting and customizable dolls, while discovering the joys of the crochet process.

To begin with, Bia introduces herself and talks about how she ended up in the amigurumi world. Also see the main influences that continue to inspire her on a daily basis.

Bia then teaches you how to build an amigurumi and all about the necessary materials. Discover the basic stitches involved, and learn how to create a versatile template that you can customize later on.

Now you've got a solid foundation, it's time to get to work on your final project. Start with the body, before crocheting the arms, legs, and head. All that's left is to sew all the pieces together.

Next, explore how to create a range of different animals from the same base. Follow Bia's steps to transform your amigurumi into a bunny, and then a unicorn. Wrap up the course by taking a look at a few extra design options as well as some helpful tricks for finding inspiration.

What is this course's project?

Crochet your own amigurumi step by step. Learn to make a bunny and a unicorn, as well as techniques for creating a whole host of other animals.
