How to Design Your Own Amigurumi – New Design Series

It’s 2018 and it’s time for a new series of articles. A new series of articles about designing!

There comes a point in every crocheters life when they decide that they want to start designing their own patterns.

The question is, how do you go about designing something of your own? Something unique and unlike any other designers pattern?

Actually, when I asked on Instagram what people’s questions and struggles were when it comes to designing, the number one question was, “How do I create something unique without copying someone else’s design?”

Well, I can’t wait to dive into this series and be able to offer a little advice to those struggling! Right now I’m collecting my thoughts and getting ready for the first post. (It might surprise you what it’s going to be about.)

Before we begin, though, what are YOUR questions about designing? What do you struggle with most when designing your own patterns? Let me know!

See you next week!

  1. I always have troubles shaping the body and head correctly. I always try designing something, but it turns out like a weird deformed blob.
    Please help with shaping.

  2. I haven’t created my own pattern yet, it’s something I really want to do but not sure where to start. I will be following this series with great interest.

  3. How do you design different shapes

  4. Mine is how to shape them correctly instead of making all the heads similar to each other :O

  5. The most trouble I have in creating my own pattern is how to make proportions in amigurumi’s body. So the head want be too long or too squishie, same with the body :)

    1. Thanks for sharing, Olya! I will definitely cover proportions in a future post! :)
