The article explains the special stitch used in making this toy. The terminology is explained in both American and British terms since some abbreviations are different than others. For example, the American abbreviation for “slip stitch” is SL st, while the British write it as ss. Americans don’t use the British term “treble crochet” and the British don’t use the term “single crochet.”
It is detailed and complicated; one who knows how to stitch and has had experience with yarn would understand the instructions. Stitching rounds and following the abbreviations in the code that is written could make things confusing. But this is for a specific pattern that is relatively new and for those with specific tastes in this art. Overall, the chick design is pretty and very artsy, setting a strong example for why this Japanese art is very popular.
Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures, and has been in existence for years, but the West started to catch on to the art in the mid 2000s.
Like arts and crafts? Like birds? Like things made in Amigurumi crochet pattern? This is something that could be attractive then.
Crocheting is different from knitting; it involves locking in materials such as yarn, thread, or cotton with a hook.
