The age-old debate of hook size for amigurumi has been raging on for far too long. But let me tell you, if you’re not using a smaller hook, you’re doing it wrong.
Sure, some may argue that a larger hook creates a looser, more cuddly toy. But let’s be real here; we’re not making stuffed animals for babies; we’re making them for ourselves. And what do we want? A toy that can hold its shape and stand up on its own, like a boss.
Using a smaller hook not only creates a firmer fabric but also allows for more detail in your amigurumi. You want those tiny arms and legs to actually look like arms and legs, not just limp noodles. And let’s not forget about those adorable facial features. With a smaller hook, you can create intricate eyes and noses that will make your amigurumi stand out from the crowd.
But don’t just take my word for it. Give it a try and see for yourself. You’ll be amazed at the difference a smaller hook can make. And don’t worry about the extra time it may take to complete your project. The end result will be worth it, trust me.
So, in conclusion, if you want to take your amigurumi game to the next level, ditch the larger hook and embrace the power of the small. Your amigurumi will thank you.
