Did you know there is a right and a wrong side of crocheting? The picture below illustrates the right side of the fabric. It matters for amigurumi because toys looks better when the ‘right’ or front side is facing out.
So, how to figure out which side is the right one?
Primarily, when you are crocheting in a round, the right side is the side facing you. Single crochet stitches have a “v” shape. Each stitch has a certain shape that looks cleaner, straight and overall better on the right side. The flipped over side is the wrong side and will look fuzzier and messy.
