EMBROIDERING THE FACE
Embroidering on crochet takes a bit of practice, but it gives your amigurumi lots of personality. The key to face embroidery on crochet is to make sure to insert your needle through your stitches and not in a hole between stitches so your thread remains secure. It is also much easier to embroider on crochet before you’ve finished and stuffed your piece.

To begin, cut a 24-inch piece of black fine weight yarn or embroidery floss (using all 6 strands). Thread embroidery needle and double knot end.

If you’d rather not embroider eyes, use safety eyes between rends 4 & 5 of eyes and embroider nose and mouth using steps 6, 7, 9, & 10.
