Q: What stitches do I need to know to make a basic amigurumi pattern?

If you are new to crocheting but want to start making crocheted animals, this video is for you! In this video, I show all the stitches you will need to know to make almost all of my amigurumi patterns.

Thankfully, there are just a few stitches to know - first, I show the slip knot which is simply how to attach your yarn to your hook, then how to make a chain stitch (abbreviated: "ch"), a single crochet (abbreviated "sc"), an increase stitch (abbreviated "inc" or "2sc in next st"), and a decrease stitch (abbreviated "dec" or "sc dec st").
