How Do You Carry Yarn In Amigurumi

You want to know how to carry yarn in amigurumi? Well, I’m about to blow your mind with some serious yarn-carrying knowledge. 

First off, let’s talk about the basics. You can either cut and tie off your yarn at the end of each row, or you can carry it along the back of your work. But let’s be real, who has time for all that cutting and tying nonsense? We’ve got amigurumi to make! 

So, here’s the real deal. The secret to carrying yarn in amigurumi is to use the “invisible carry.” That’s right, invisible like a ninja. 

Here’s how it works. When you get to the end of a row and need to switch colors, simply drop the old color and pick up the new one. But don’t just start crocheting with the new color yet. Instead, hold the old color and the new color together and crochet over the old color for a few stitches. Then, drop the old color and continue crocheting with the new one. 

Boom. Mind blown. Not only does this save you time and effort, but it also creates a seamless color change that is practically invisible. 

 But wait, there’s more! If you’re feeling extra fancy, you can even carry multiple colors at once. Just hold all the colors together and crochet over them like before. It’s like a rainbow explosion in your amigurumi. 

So there you have it, folks. The ultimate yarn-carrying hack for amigurumi. Now go forth and create some seriously epic crochet creations. And remember, always be a yarn ninja.
