How small can you crochet? I don’t have the patience to crochet little teeny tiny creatures but I sure do respect people who do! I thought I’d do a roundup of the smallest crochet and amigurumi I’ve seen around the web. Enjoy!

Su Ami MicroCrochet

Most of the time when I see a non-crochet site pick up a story about teeny tiny crochet it’s about artist Su Ami. She does such cute miniature work! She has work in varied sizes but it’s her “microcrochet” work that’s especially amazing.

Lam Linh is another microcrocheter on Etsy (although I found the work on Pinterest). Love the detail of some of the animals and characters!

        Unfortunately I don’t think the artist shares patterns. Love what she does though!
