Beauty and Awesome Crochet Amigurumi Doll Patterns
Amigurumi has a long and fascinating history, and small stuffed toys that can be made quickly and successfully have become an integral part of Japanese kawaii culture. The word is a mixture of the words ami (編) for crocheting or knitting and nuigurumi (ぬ い ぐ る み) a small rag doll. Although the exact origin of crochet dolls is difficult to pin down, historians agree that the art likely originated in China with records of woven dolls dating back to the Shang dynasty.
The Dutch are also believed to have introduced weaving techniques to Japan in the late 19th century, which in turn became popular with samurai who developed the technique for decorating and making clothing. Amigurumi as we know it became popular in the 1980s with the Kawaii movement and an NHK show called Ami. The ship, which required very little material and space to start, became an instant success. The madness in the west was more recent and began in the early to mid-2000s, supported by video tutorials on Youtube. While amigurumi can be knitted, it is most commonly associated with crocheting.
