Crochet Instruction Generator
Сrochet Pieces Library
Toy Constructor
PDF instruction is automatically created after saving the toy design. Users can get for free such crochet how-to to turn their pattern into a toy. A premium version with illustrated additions is available.
Professionally designed toy crochet pieces serve as objects that users can mix on canvas. Different-sized amigurumi heads, ears, bodies, arms, wings, legs, and tails are made to be proportional and easy to make.
After the user chooses a crochet piece and drops it on the canvas, the app combines it with other elements into the multilayer image. Patterns are broken down into individual pieces, from ears to paws. Users can mix-and-match amigurumi pieces to create a toy, choosing types and changing colors.
Save Point
Users can return anytime to the crochet pattern generator to adjust the layout, update the crochet pieces, or change the colors. The saved design is accessible by the link and can be shared.
Users can enter the admin dashboard and perform the following actions:
  • add new pieces as assets
  • edit current assets
  • delete assets
  • publish/unpublish assets
