AmiguruMay2022 is the Instagram challenge for amigurumi lovers everywhere. Share your amigurumi makes on social media and connect with other crocheters around the world.
AmiguruMay is back for a fourth year in a row and you are not going to want to miss out on all the fun!
If you’re an amigurumi addict like myself, you naturally look forward to this social media challenge all year long.
But if you’re also as scatterbrained as I am, AmiguruMay2022 will sneak up on you.
What is AmiguruMay2022
AmiguruMay2022 is an Instagram challenge specifically for amigurumi lovers.
AmiguruMAY 2022 is an Instagram challenge that runs throughout May 2022. The theme of this challenge is amigurumi and crochet – of course! – with daily prompts to follow as inspiration to share a photo/video/reel on your IG grid.”— Ilaria, AiraliGray
How to Participate in AmiguruMay2022
Can anyone participate in AmiguruMay2022?
Absolutely! Beginners to experienced amigurumi lovers can post their photos on Instagram using the hashtag #amigurumay2022.
What if I can’t post every single day?
If you aren’t able to post every single day, you will be in good company. There’s a reason this is called a challenge!
I most likely won’t be able to post every single day. Who am I kidding? I definitely won’t be able to post my photos to Instagram every day.
But that’s ok!
“Yes, it may be a bit challenging to take a photo or a video every day for 31 days in a row. Feel free to set your own challenge if this is too much! You can post every other day, only 3 days a week, only on weekends… it’s up to you! There is only one rule: have fun!“— Ilaria, AiraliGray
May favorite part about AmiguruMay is the daily prompts calendar.
Every day has a theme and invites you to share your amigurumi journey in creative and fun ways.
AmiguruMay Printable Planner
Ilaria has also provided us all with a printable planner to help us brainstorm our posts for the month.
This simple resource helps us to get our ideas out on paper and plan out what we are going to post each day.
It reminds me of the saying, “Failing to plan is planning to fail.” If only I would apply this to my life at all times!
Airali Gray the Designer
I’ve been a big fan of Ilaria from Airali Gray for quite some time.
This year I decided to celebrate AmiguruMay2022 by crocheting another one of Ilaria’s lovely designs.
I wanted something simple, but totally adorable. Thankfully I didn’t have any trouble finding exactly what I was looking for.

You will find tons of FREE and paid patterns from Airali Design.
Last year I made her free Flower Power Hippo with some lovely chunky chenille yarn.
This year I decided to make her paid pattern, Little Whale.
I started working on this pattern last night and I’ve already made two. They are totally addictive and whip up super quickly.
Connect With Amigurumi Makers Around the World
One of the things I love most about AmiguruMay is being able to connect with amigurumi lovers around the world.
By following the hashtags #amigurumay and #amigurumay2022 you can find new amgiurumi makers on Instagram. There you’ll find inspiration and hopefully make a few new online friends.
One of the things that helps me to get out of a rut is to challenge myself to do new things.
Lately I’ve gotten lazy about social media. I don’t take the time to share photos or engage with other makers.
This is one of the things I personally love about AmiguruMay2022. It gets me out of my comfort zone and challenges me to show up.
