Have you ever tried adding contours to your amigurumi (knit or crocheted) with a needle? The technique is called needle sculpting and the possibilities are endless! Here's an easy tutorial to get you started - see how to make eye sockets and a nose for a doll's face.

Thanks for the info. That would work with knit and sewn dolls too.

Under the video on the above link it states this! Ready to try it out? My pattern for the CAL Central Softie Crochet Along comes on on May 28th. Once it’s out, I will add the link here.

Can't wait to see it

Thank you . That looks interesting . Sachiyo Isnii does increases and decreases on her characters heads which creates contours on faces .

Haven't made dolls on many years but always did it, the tighter your knitting or crochet is will make it stand out even more

You can do really complex needle-sculpting with sewn dolls. There are some amazing books available on it. I used some simple needle sculpting, but had such a hard time stuffing the dolls I made I vowed to never do it again. It has been enough years now, that I think a small doll would be fun, but the larger ones like I did are still on my never, never, never-ever list. I think this is a great idea for knitted or crocheted dolls.

Cute idea. I suggest a thimble and longer doll-making needles to make your work easier and safer. Pushing on sewing needles can hurt.
