Something new I'm trying is making jogless stripes in crochet. I don't recall ever doing this before, but I'm amazed at how easy it actually is. I used this video tutorial to learn how to make a "circle join" stitch. Note: the video is long, and the speaker goes slowly, but you only need to truly watch from 3:52 to about 12:00 to understand making the circle join stitch. I only use this stitch about two rounds before changing colors. Otherwise, on long stretches of crocheting one color in the round I simply crocheted in a spiral.
I hope to have this finished next week. The face (in this case it will be just eyes) is often the deal maker or breaker of an amigurumi so wish me well in that. 😉
