Amigurumi Shoes


Amigurumi shoes are cute and colourful shoes made with knitting. The materials you need for this are:


- Amigurumi rope

- Crochet

- Scissors

- Needle

- Button or bead


How to make it:


1. Tie a knot in the crochet with the amigurumi rope and pull 6 chains.

2. Sink into the first chain and make a tight needle. Then continue to make tight needles by sinking into each chain. When you get to the last chain, make 3 safety pins and continue to make safety pins by sinking into the chains on the other side. When you reach the last chain, make 2 more safety pins and close the loop by sinking into the first safety pin.

3. In the second row, continue to make a single tight needle in each stitch. In the places where you have made three tight needles, make an increase by making 2 tight needles in each loop. Thus, you will expand the sole of the shoe.

4. In the third row, continue to make a tight needle by sinking into each loop. Where you have made an increase, make a decrease by taking 2 loops together. Thus, you will narrow the sole of the shoe.

5. In the fourth row, continue to tighten the needle by sinking into each loop. Do not increase or decrease at this time.

6. In the fifth row, continue knitting in a semicircle to form the front of the shoe. To do this, skip the first 10 stitches and start tight needling in the 11th stitch. Finish knitting by skipping the last 10 loops and cut the string.

7. In the sixth row, continue knitting to form the back of the shoe. To do this, sink into one of the 10 loops you skipped and begin to make a tight needle. Finish knitting the other 10 loops and cut the rope.

8. In the seventh row, continue knitting to form the side parts of the shoe. To do this, sink into the first loop on the front and begin to make a tight needle. Knit until you reach the last loop on the back and cut the thread.

9. In the eighth row, continue knitting to form the other side part of the shoe. To do this, sink into the first loop on the back side and start making tight needles. Knit until you get to the last loop on the front and cut the thread.

10. In the ninth row, continue knitting to form the upper part of the shoe. To do this, sink into the first loop on the front part and start making tight needles. Knit until you get to the last loop on the back and cut the thread.

11. In the tenth row, continue knitting to form the mouth of the shoe. To do this, sink into the first loop on the front part and start making tight needles. Knit until you get to the last loop on the back and cut the thread.

12. Finally, decorate the shoe by sewing buttons or beads around the edges.
