Thank you very much for your advice! I'll give the stitch markers a go and let you know how I went!

Turned out I was doing it all wrong (don't ask how, I'm not entirely sure but it was very different to what they were doing in the youtube tutorials!) but I think I'm OK now, though. Thanks for your help Laialda :)

Yea the bobby pins can get a bit fiddly if you use a lot on a small project like the amigurumi. I usually only use one to mark the beginning of the round so I can find it again lol.

Really nice guide and patterns BTW.

OK, another two questions! What sort of needles are best when sewing all the amigurumi pieces together, and is it best to use yarn or thread? I've just made a Luma and I've made the limbs to attach, but I've got no idea which needles would be best. I'm going to my local craft store on Tuesday so I can get whatever you recommend. Thanks in advance!

Don't worry about it! I didn't end up going on Tuesday so it's OK!
I was worried you'd say that! The steel yarn needles are giving me the sh*ts! Though I was unaware they came in different sizes (I'm using huge ones to sew together small parts and it's...tricky!) so I'll look around for some smaller ones! Thanks again :wave:
