You will need the following colours of wool.

Parts by colour
See the Basic Amigurumi Lesson page for the basics of amigurumi. Once you have seen that, have a go at making the NIKEN.
The NIKEN is made up of mostly black parts so we have made how-to videos showing the parts in different colours so that it is easy to understand how they are made and assembled. Enjoy our specially made how-to guide.
