It's really important to have a stitch marker for your amigurumi project. Since amigurumi is worked in the single crochet stitch continuously in the round, you need a way of keeping track of where you've finished one row and started another. Be sure to get a stitch marker made specifically for crochet -- unlike a knitting stitch marker, a crochet stitch marker has an opening that allows for it to be slipped onto a completed stitch and then removed and put onto another stitch.
