Hi and warmly welcome to Fluffy Unicorn’s Crochet Corner! Today, I show you how to embroider a face for your amigurumi animal I finshed the first eye already, so you see how it should end up. If you have crocheted a heart on the body of your animal, the eye should be directly over the highest point of it You start with embroidering the shape of the pupil I like to have all my yarn ends at the side of the head From there you can easily get your yarn were it should be and start with a circle or something like it To make the yes as big as I do the here, make sure that the pupil already covers up two rounds of the head Of course you can also make the eyes a bit smaller, as these are really big eyes As you see, I do one straight stitch at the bottom, go diagonally up to the side, then go up in the middle over the first stitch Then diagonally to the other side and back to were I started After closing the circle I bring my yarn end into the middle. from here you start covering up the whole pupil with black yarn You best do this by doing circular stitches from the middle of the pupil to the circle line Try not to think of your work as crochet but see it just as a piece of cloth, but just go right into your yarn (not only into the holes between stitches) When you did cover up the pupil, you may find that your circleline looks a bit messy You can cover this up by doing one or two long stitches around the pupil, which you fasten with one small stitch Same thing above the pupil. Afterwards I try to arrange the whole thing a bit with the needle to make it look even more tidy Repeat the same thing you just did with your black yarn with the eye-coloured one Do one long stitch around half of the pupil Fasten it with a small stitch and repeat the hole thing 3-4 times according to the size of the iris you want to achieve. Same thing of course, for the other side underneath the pupil At the end we do a small white highlight into the eye to make it look more lively. Therefore you go right into the pupil make 2-3 small stitches underneath the black yarn of the pupil Make sure your stitches are lying exactly next to each other, so it looks like one single white spot Afterwards you can order it a bit with your needle until everything looks neat Ready your are with the eyes. Now you can sew up the yarn ends and cut them To do a very simple triangular animal nose, you start anew aith your black yarn Start diagonally under one eye and make a stitch as long as 3 single crochets (or longer or shorter, if you like that better) As you did for the pupil you first do the form of the nose like this And then cover it all up with lots of stitches Again, try to lay one stitch right beside the other until the whole nose is black When you have done this, you should do another long stitch to cover the beginnings of all your smaller stitches like this For the mouth you go underneath the nose, not directly but a bit to the one side See, this would be straight, but we want to find a point right next to it From here we go back to the nose Then we do one stitch to the side And another one diagonally up to give your amigurumi a bright smile Do the other side in the same way And this is how your animal’s face should turn out Thank you for watching!
