#68 Exploring the Art of Amigurumi

Amigurumi is one of the most expressive forms of crochet.

Whether you’re an amigurumi pro or have no idea what the word means, you’re in for a real treat today. You’re probably thinking, “Brittany, you’re crazy. All forms of crochet are expressive and artsy” and you’re totally right. But there’s something pretty great about being able to look at a physical, 3D object and replicate it with yarn. Some of the most expressive people I know are amigurumi artists.
