Notes


  • Beginner-friendly crochet pattern but you have the option of learning some new skills!
  • I made this amigurumi using the "Yarn Under Single Crochet" technique. This technique makes the stitches tighter and appears more aligned.
  • Crochet in continuous rounds. Do not join at the end of each round. Use a running stitch marker to keep your place when crocheting in rounds.
  • Use the ultimate finish to close up the back of the amigurumi sun.
  • Use invisible decreases when making single crochet decreases for a nicer finish.
  • Use the invisible fasten-off method to finish off the rays.
  • Optional: I used the invisible increase method for my increases.
  • Final measurements: approximately 7.5 cm (almost 3 inches).
  • Gauge is not super important for this project as long as you keep your tension consistent.
  • You can substitute and use a different yarn weight/category and appropriate hook size for this project to make it bigger/smaller.
