How to shape animal hooves for Amigurumi – Instructions:

In this video I use US crochet terminology.

Step1: insert a pin at the top of the hoof, roughly in the centre of the leg

Step2: thread your needle with a yarn of your choice

Step3: insert the needle in the centre of the magic ring at the bottom of the hoof

Step4: pull the needle through the hoof and come out through the stitch you marked with the pin

Step5: pull all the way through leaving a yarn tail at the bottom of the hoof

Step6: repeat Step 3 and Step 4 again

Step7:  you will be left with two yarn tails, pull on each of them really tight to shape the hoof and tie a double knot close to the centre of the magic ring at the bottom of the hoof

Step8:  weave both yarn tails in tightly through the centre of the magic ring, while pulling the knot inside the hoof with them
