how to: Brushed Amigurumi

I’ve discussed the technique of brushing crochet several times before: I experimented with different yarns; I showed you how to convert my Fuzzy Friends patterns to brushed patterns; I told you about different brush options; and I’ve included more specific details of how to brush crochet within each of my patterns that uses the technique.

There’s lots of great information there, but having it all scattered around over several pages isn’t ideal, so I’ve combined the salient points from all my previous brushed crochet posts into a comprehensive tutorial: a guide to Brushed Amigurumi.

You can now also find this tutorial in my Master List of crochet tutorials – your one-stop shop for help if you have any amigurumi questions! – and I hope you find it useful if you’re new to brushed crochet, or have questions about the technique.

PS – If you write your own crochet patterns and would like to link to this info in your pattern, please feel free. As with all my tutorials, you’ll find the easy-to-type shortlink – in this case, www.planetjune.com/brush – at the top of the tutorial page, for your linking convenience. 🙂

    Speaking of fuzzy patterns, why is the yeti not in the fuzzy patterns multipack deal?

      Barb, my Fuzzy Friends pattern collection is a set of designs created especially to be used with ‘fuzzy’-type yarns (e.g. eyelash yarns and fluffy mohair blends). They are unlike my other patterns because they use special techniques that facilitate working with these challenging yarns.

      All my other designs are worked using my standard amigurumi techniques and regular yarns. Some, like the Yeti & Bigfoot (and the penguin and bunny pictured above), are brushed to make them fluffy, but they don’t use any of my special fuzzy yarn techniques and are completely unrelated to the Fuzzy Friends patterns, so they aren’t part of the Fuzzy Friends multipack deal. I hope that makes sense!
