The sloppy slip knot: how to work in the round with no hole The typical way of starting to work in the round is less than ideal for amigurumi.
Whenever I have to crochet a sphere, I always pull out the tried and true method: increase by the same number of stitches each row for a little while, work the rows even for the middle bit, then decrease by the same number of stitches each row until you're finished. Once it's stuffed, this makes a decent sphere! Plus, it's a super easy pattern to remember.
