Against a Wall KNOT A STITCH OUT OF PLACE • CROCHET IS A centuries-old art form that involves hand-stitching interlocking loops of yarn—a process difficult to replicate with machines.

The base stitches form a circle, known as a magic loop, that the rest of the crocheted animal—the amigurumi—is built upon, thus giving beginner crocheters a kick Start. But manufacturing by hand introduces the possibility of human error, and the co-founders soon realized that, when it comes to crochet, there are no shortcuts.
