Erilk the Amigurumi Creature

by Mariface

Simple round shapes make up this guy  Materials Used: Aluminum size G hook (US) WW yarn (less than 3 oz) Poly Fiberfill Stuffing Scissors Yarn Needle I used the double ring instead of chaining to begin my ami. The double ring is just a thicker version of the magic ring, in that it uses two loops instead of just one. Basically, you loop yarn over twice on your finger, remove your finger and pull up a loop- and at that point you can crochet into the ring, pulling the end of the yarn so the rings close.
