How To: Crochet a Granny Square Blanket | Apartment Therapy Ohdeedoh
This bunny is so simple as it is made from a knitted square – any size is fine. (This one is in 8ply wool on 4mm needles and 28 stitches across.) With the same coloured wool (I have used contrasting wool here so you can see more clearly) and a very big running stitch – stitch across the middle of the square (fold in half if you want to be accurate.) Make sure you have a secure knot at the end as the thread will be pulled later.
In the first amigurumi tutorial I went over the basic crochet techniques needed to make amigurumis. In the second installment , I explained the most common types of patterns, and how to read them. In this final amigurumi tutorial I’ll cover some additional techniques often used when making amigurumis.

The following is not an inclusive list (for that go to Nexstitch’s crochet video tutorials ), but simply some of the stitches that you are likely to encounter when crocheting amigurumis.
