So, what does the Crochet term ‘Amigurumi’ mean? This is what Wikipedia has to say -:
Amigurumi (編みぐるみ ?, lit. crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, usually cute stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. View more free patterns Here
