Without all the online videos, I don't think I'll ever learn how to make amigurumi. Once you've got the basics down, amigurumi is indeed not hard to pick up as many claim, but when I first started, I could not for the life of me decipher those diagrams that are supposed to show you how each stitch is formed. Luckily, many great crocheters out there have taken the time to create instructional videos. Thank you!
For me, what got me started on my amigurumi journey is Hook and Needles tutorials. You'll learn how to do single crochet, magic circle, increases and decreases. There is also a tutorial on how to read patterns.
Watching videos is a great way to learn amigurumi. The beauty is, if one video doesn't help, try a different one and you'll be sure to find one that makes sense to you. Try it out if you're starting off.
