Eye indentations are a neat technique you can use when making amigurumi! My favorite part about using this trick is that it makes the cheeks of my plushies more puffy and cute. Follow this simple tutorial below to learn how.
-Yarn (preferably the excess tail of a piece that has already been sewn on for more security)
Using a yarn tail from the tail that we sewed on, weave out of the body and out of the stitch marked by the pin for where the eye will be.
Move one stitch over (in the direction of the midpoint of the face) and weave your yarn tail through directly towards the back of the head.
Pull firmly to create the indentation.
Repeat the process for the other eye.
Now you are done! I use this technique in several of my patterns including the Sea Otters pattern and Giant Otters pattern.
