Amigurumi differs from crocheting in general in that it involves crocheting exclusively in 3D to make stuffed animals. Crocheting generally involves working in 2D flat rows to make garments or household items, but amigurumi are always woven in a circular pattern. Of course, it may sometimes be necessary to crochet in a round for projects other than amigurumi and vice versa, but for the most part, the two techniques are broken up like this.
One of the key parts of circular crocheting and a technique that is almost always used to make amigurumi is making a magic circle (tutorial here). If you are an experienced weaver, this term may be new to you as well, just because it is rarely used to make an average scarf or hat. However, magic rings are the first essential building block of any part of the amigurumi, as they allow you to weave in spirals, not rows. For this reason, it’s easy to see that while amigurumi technically falls into the same category as crochet hook, it is a very specific type of crochet hook designed solely to meet the needs of creating cute creatures.
