Watch this instructional video to crochet a human ear for your amigurumi doll. Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. Amigurumi are typically cute animals (such as bears, rabbits, cats, dogs, etc.), but can include inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features. So, you may need a crocheted human ear for a number of amigurumi projects. Amigurumi are almost always crocheted or knitted out of yarn. The simplest designs work in spirals.
