I’ve tried to crochet a cute little amigurumi animal in the past. In fact, I’ve had several attempts at it, but failed every time. I read a book on crocheting and even had someone teach me, but the end result was always the same: a tangled mess of yarn, a whole lot of frustration, and the shattered dream of creating a yarn buddy to call my own. So when I saw these micro amigurumi, I couldn’t believe that someone was able to crochet a unique animal pattern, let alone one that is so small it can balance on the tip of your finger.

These micro amigurumi were created by Su Ami, a group of five family members in Vietnam. The youngest member is only 10 years old, and her nickname, Su, was the inspiration for the group’s name. Each piece is made using a 0.4mm crochet hook and a 0.3mm needle for sewing on the eyes.
Take a look at some of the group’s fantastic creations.
