Back To Crochet Basics - Lesson 9

See The Video on my Youtube Crochet
Channel At This LINK

Lesson 9
To Day's Lesson we will learn How to Crochet in
Continuous Rounds, Increase and Decrease Stitches.

We talked about single crochet in the round in Lesson 3,
And That there are 2 ways to do this.
 1. You can Join and Ch1 like we did when we 
crocheted a coaster.

2. You can do What's Called "Continuous Rounds"
No Joining or chain 1
Which we will do today
It's a technique used in making amigurumi,
which is 2 Japanese words, "Ami" Which means crochet or knitted, And "nuigurumi" Which means stuffed doll.
I like to call them stuffies or softee because it's easier to pronounce.
