A crochet kawaii succulent is a charming and adorable miniature plant that has been lovingly crafted by hand using yarn and a crochet hook by 3amgrace designers Donna and Michaelene. These adorable amigurumi succulents are a delightful addition to any desk, windowsill, or shelf. Whether you’re a fan of succulents or simply appreciate the cuteness of amigurumi, a crochet kawaii succulent is sure to bring a smile to your face.

The term “kawaii” is a Japanese word meaning cute or charming, and it perfectly captures the appeal of these tiny crochet succulents.

“As this is a guest post, Bella Coco Crochet is unable to answer any queries. If you have a question, please contact the designer directly and they will be happy to help you.”

Donna and Michaelene say, “With spring fast approaching we were inspired to create a colourful nature based design. While researching our favourite succulents, we learned that all cacti are succulents. However, not all succulents are cacti. With so many beautiful succulents, we couldn’t choose just one – instead, we designed a sweet little succulent family. We hope you love creating one as much as we enjoyed designing it for you! The colour palette options are endless. We can’t wait to see what you choose.

what is amigurumi?

Amigurumi is a Japanese art form of creating small crocheted or knitted stuffed toys, dolls or figurines. The word “amigurumi” comes from the Japanese words “ami”, meaning crocheted or knitted, and “nuigurumi”, meaning stuffed doll. The art of making amigurumi involves using simple crochet techniques to create small and detailed shapes, which are then stuffed with fiberfill to create cute and often whimsical characters.

Worked typically in the round and are made with a combination of basic stitches such as double crochet and slip stitch. Amigurumi has become increasingly popular in recent years, with crafters around the world sharing patterns and designs to create their own unique amigurumi creations.
