Ok pet peeve

True but still it would be nice to add instructions on which rows, like I don’t mind making felt eyes, but using glue and safety eyes very confuses me though (like their purpose/how they’re made is to clip them with the backings, so why glue? :thinking:)

I agree when I was a beginner amigurumi person or whatever you call it I used safety eyes just because it was easier but know I glue my eyes so I can see what the head looks like and where I would like the eyes put in and also I like my eyes kinda bulging but most people use safety eyes with backings so I think pattern writers should put safety eye instructions.

See I’m in the complete opposite boat! Instructions on where to place things frustrate me because I just can’t read rows!

When I follow a pattern or design my own pattern I always wing where everything goes because telling me it goes on row 10 is the same as not telling me at all, and I’ve been crocheting for 4 years now so I don’t think I’ll figure it out anytime soon :joy:

So the first amigurumi I ever made with a beginner pattern said “sew this to that” and maybe included the round to sew to…but I had literally no idea so I used matching thread to sew the different parts.

Later I realized…uh…duh…use the yarn

It was only recently - MONTHS of guessing how to sew pieces together (yes, with yarn), that I tried a pattern that happened to show you HOW to sew the pieces together and even had videos. Closed piece to open piece, flat piece to round piece, etc. Huge game changer!

And that designer is Anat Tzach. So go support them and learn how to actually sew amigurumi pieces together. (I did the lamb pattern)

Of course! It makes the sewing part something that I don’t dread (as much, ha) anymore!

Oh my gosh, I looked up Anat Tzach and not only did I get a few very cute free patterns from their website, but I also found a few tutorial videos that I bookmarked for future assistance haha, Thank you so much for sharing! :grin: :love_letter:

My annoyance is with the designers that say “if you need help, message me” then either get grumpy when you ask for help, or flat out ignore you. My first project on here was a top. I couldn’t get it to make sense no matter how i tried and i messaged the designer more than once, about a week apart. It’s been over a year since that first message and no answer.
I winged it and called it good enough.

I’ve had the same experience twice with 2 different designers. So I just committed to only buying from those who have an active presence either on Ribblr or their social media.

When I joined, I had already done a ton of research and made the decision that unless something happens, I will be exclusively on ribblr and will dive in the deep end and be a part of all of it or leave.
