Amigurumi Patterns – is writing them the same as other patterns?
This is a question I’m sure you asked as soon as you had a vision for a darling crochet creature and wanted to share it with the world. Writing patterns is an art in itself and amigurumi patterns are no exception. In fact, you should take a slightly different approach to recording a pattern for your amigurumi creature so recreating it is a joyous process for someone.
I’m joined by, Lee, tech editor, amigurumi enthusiast and professional crochet designer and we explore the required differences in the amigurumi pattern writing process by reflecting on our own personal mistakes. But the fun doesn’t end there! We also chat about the tech editing process and even some of the “gray areas” of designing these cuddly creatures.
- About Lee and how she became a tech editor
- How Amigurumi pattern writing differs from another type of pattern
- How to find your inspiration
- Potential issues with recreating “famous characters”
- the Amigurumi pattern writing action plan
