How to Surface Crochet

To create a border on an Amigurumi you use a technique that is called Surface Crochet.
This technique is used on many of by Amigurumi crochet patterns. I have created a tutorial and a video on how to surface crochet. You can find the video below the written tutorial.

This is how you surface crochet:
Photo 1 & 2: Insert the hook under the first stitch, grab the yarn and draw up a loop.
Photo 3: Yarn over and draw through the loop on the hook attaching the yarn to the body.
Photo 4 & 5: Insert the hook under the next stitch.Yarn over and draw the yarn under the stitch and through the loop on the hook (like a slip stitch). Do this in all the stitches.
Photo 6, 7 & 8: Sew in the last piece of yarn like on the photo to finish the border.
