- And what are its hallmarks?
Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The literal translation is knitted stuffed toy. The word comes from a combination of Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. The typical artistic style of Amigurumi is an over-sized round head, a cylindrical body, arms and legs, ears, tail (if needed) and embellishments. Felt is often used to embellish or to create the ears, face, or nose. Personally, I would also add the trait of being extremely cute.
