  • Fiberfill

Abbreviations and Guides

Here’s a brief explanation of each term you will use while crocheting these amigurumi eyeballs and the abbreviation for each:

  • mr (magic ring): A technique used to start crocheting in the round. It involves creating a loop with your yarn and crocheting into that loop, allowing a tighter closure at the center of your work compared to starting with chains.
  • slst (slip stitch): A slip stitch is used to join stitches together, finish off an area, or move your yarn to another part of your project without adding height or bulk. To make a slip stitch, insert your hook into the stitch, yarn over, and pull through both the stitch and the loop on your hook in one movement.
  • ch (chain): The chain stitch is one of the most basic crochet stitches and is often used to create the foundation row of a piece or to add height at the beginning of a new row or round. To make a chain stitch, you yarn over and pull the yarn through the loop on your hook.
  • sc (single crochet): In the US, a single crochet is made by inserting your hook into a stitch, yarning over, pulling through to have two loops on your hook, then yarning over again and pulling through both loops. In the UK, this is known as a double crochet.
  • inc (increase): Increasing is a way to add stitches to your work and is often used in shaping. For a single crochet increase (or double crochet increase in the UK), you make two single crochets into the same stitch. This is also explained as “2 single crochet in one stitch” for clarity.
  • dec (decrease): Decreasing removes stitches from your work and is also used for shaping. In single crochet, to make a decrease, you typically insert your hook into a stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, then insert the hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull up another loop, and then yarn over again and pull through all three loops on your hook. This combines two stitches into one.
