I actually came across a vid for it while trying to figure out the chain 2 then st 6 in the blah blah and so on thing, I COULD NOT figure that out lol.
The video I found showing this technique was sub-par at best, so I figured I would contribute a version done by me.
I hope it helps and if you have any questions feel free to ask ^^

I hope you can help with this confusion. On a pattern that im gonna try to work has:

Round3: *Sc2,2sc in the next st* ,but what stumps me is that isn't Sc2 and 2sc are basically the same crochet stitch or am I just confusing myself even farther.

It sounds like you would do sc, sc, inc repeat.

If you're doing a sphere like most ami, it's usually:

Round 1: 6 (or 8 or whatever) sc
Round 2: inc around
Round 3: *inc, sc* around

2sc, inc would give you a little more of an oval shape. Does that sound right?

I'm not sure, I would have to see the pattern myself. If there is a key on the pattern I would go to that first or ask the writer of the pattern. But as far as I can tell from what I know, 2sc and sc2 are the same thing to me. Both meaning Single Crochet 2.

Oh god. I can't help but laugh whenever I see these. First of all, I'm shocked because I already mastered this technique when I was 12, because we had to use it in our Home Ec. lessons (which I believe are quite different from american and Asian home ec. lessons) or we'd fail. And second of all, I'm grateful that these tutorials exist because I don't think I can remember all the techniques we learned for the future in case I need it! ;u;

I'm glad this helped you!~ I find that the hole created by this is A LOT smaller and tighter than the traditional method. ^^

I'm left handed, so I had to learn from a few diffrent people and found a video someone did for right handed people, but flipped it lol. I don't really make many Amigurumi's but your tutorial is one of the clearest I have found online. I looked over your others one they are extreamly clear, alot better than some found in books.

Even being a right handed crocheter I still had issues, nothing was clear enough, so I wound up watching and reading then figuring it out as I went along. Lucky for me, I'm a fast learner.

It is waaaay easier than chaining 2 and so on and so forth. I'm glad I found out how to do it when I did.
