which is the ‘right’ side for amigurumi? [video]

Link easily to this tutorial in your patterns:

I’ve already written (in my Which is the ‘Right’ Side? tutorial) about how to tell the right side from the wrong side of your work when making amigurumi, and when it really matters which side you have facing outwards, but there’s value in showing it in video form too, so you can really see how a piece of amigurumi forms, and what your stitches look like from the front and the back.

(If you’re already comfortable with the right and wrong sides, when you can use whichever side you prefer, and when it really matters which side faces outwards, you can skip this video, if you like – there’s nothing extra that I didn’t tell you in my original which is the ‘right’ side discussion – but I’m building my crochet tutorials video library and that has to include the essential basics as well as clever tips and new techniques.)

And now to the video tutorial (in right- and left-handed versions, of course):

    Total ‘aha!’ moment – thank you!!! And thank you for showing the left handed version of things. Trying to do everything ‘backwards’ can be such a challenge at times!!! ☺☺

    Boy, am I glad I found your site! I had no idea how to crochet a few days ago, but I feel like I have a good foundation now to start practicing amigurumi! (I had never heard of them before yesterday.) Thanks for your patient and detailed explanations, photos and videos!
