Be that as it may, craftswomen knit overalls, booties and hats for their pets, and then create cute knitted animals.

To tie a toy, you need to think in advance what parts it will consist of. Usually the head is knitted separately: it has the most small details, so it is convenient to work not with the whole toy, but with some of its fragments. The crochet technique allows you to make changes to the original model along the way without dissolving the product.

How to assemble the toy

After the front and back parts are completely ready, they begin to sew them together. To do this, both parts are tied around the contour with a beige thread, leaving the upper part of the head uncovered - synthetic fluff is stuffed through it. Start stuffing in small pieces, tamping them in the paws with a pencil. If this is not done, they will hang like flippers.

The torso is not stuffed too much to keep the toy soft. After stuffing the head, continue and finish sewing the product.

How to sew on ears

Amigurumi toys are traditionally sewn together with sewing threads. They are not visible against the background of a knitted product, but modern techniques do not use such methods. Crocheted pug ears are steamed with an iron through a damp cloth and checked for their identity. If after steaming one ear is larger, you can bandage it.

ear tying

To assemble separately connected parts, a seam is performed without knitting a column. To do this, insert a hook into the extreme loop of the part and one of the loops of the canvas to which it is tied. Having folded the end of the thread in half, pull the loop. Without knitting it, repeat the operation again. There are two loops on the hook. Stretch the second through the first, as in an air chain. All the details are fastened with such a seam.


To tie a funny dogcrochet pug, any light yarn in natural shades will do. It will take a little, so the product will not become costly. Instead of ready-made eyes, you can sew on buttons, and glue a disk of s alt dough on the holes in their center.
