Hey guys, and welcome to fall! I can not believe it’s my favorite time of the year again, and I have many cute patterns coming soon. Starting off this month, I wanted to do a technique post for you. In this post I will be walking you through how to close the leftover hole on your amigurumi projects. This is a basic technique that not many beginner crocheters know about or how to do. So, I hope you find this post helpful. You can use this technique to finish amigurumi projects, especially to help give the project a finished look. This is not something you need to do after finishing every piece, but some patterns specify the use of this technique. Now, let’s get started!
After you finish an amigurumi piece, you are usually left with a hole that looks like this.
If you are planning to sew this piece to another one then we typically leave it as is. However, if you are done with this piece and want to close it, follow the step-by-step directions below.
Step 1: Attach your yarn needle to the leftover tail of the yarn on your project.
Step 2: Insert the yarn needle into the front loop of the first stitch and pull through.
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 until you have reached the end of the round. In this example, I worked through six stitches in total.
Step 4: Pull the yarn tail tight to close the hole and then weave in the ends.
There you have it! Now you know how to close that annoying hole left on your amigurumi projects. I know this post was a quick one, but I hope you found it helpful. I have a lot of content and patterns coming your way over the next few months, so look out for that.
