If you hate sewing as much as I do, you will absolutely love this round up of free no sew amigurumi patterns! I have to be honest – my LEAST favourite thing about crocheting amigurumi is the sewing. I love to crochet but sewing sometimes feels like pulling teeth! Often, my work space is littered with crocheted limbs and body parts waiting to be sewn together (lol – that sounds so macabre, doesn’t it!) because I just can’t bring myself to do it.
In fact, whenever possible, I try to adapt patterns to reduce sewing by using the no-sew method to attach amigurumi parts. So when I first discovered no-sew amigurumi that are all made in one piece, I was delighted!
So, to share love, this round up features over twenty super cute no-sew amigurumi patterns that you will just love! Most of these one piece amigurumi patterns are quite simple to crochet and range from tiny amigurumi patterns to larger pieces. They would make wonderful gifts or are great patterns for your next craft fair. And the best part? All the patterns in this round up are free!
