Adding eyes & stuffing
Wooble-yeah – you're so close! There's only one round left for the body. Before you close it up, add the eyes and stuffing.
⚠️ If you're going to give this to a child younger than 3 or to a pet, don't use safety eyes! Safety eyes aren’t safe. Confusing, I know. You can embroider eyes on instead.
If safety eyes are a go, then put them between rounds 7 & 8, with 6 stitches in between them. The flat side of the backing should face the yarn. Watch the video below for a demo on how to count rounds and stitches, and put safety eyes in correctly:
Once you add the eyes, stuff your amigurumi and shape it like an egg.
