This is a Japanese style of crochet. I have been doing it for a long time without really knowing what it is. I used to make a lot of little toys for nieces and nephews using the technique. Recently I made Penguins for my grandchildren and they loved them. I bought a kit of Star Wars characters that I love and found that it is also Amigurumi. I wanted to do a good job on them so I looked up the technique online and found a great website. I will be doing a lot more of this.
Easter Bunnies made for my grandkids.
