Typically, amigurumi is worked in a continuous spiral - rounds (rows) are not connected using a slip stitch. Rather, round beginnings or ends are distinguished using stitch markers. These can as simple as a length of contrasting yarn, safety pins, or paperclips and are can be found with craft supplies in stores.
Stuff as you go (polyester filling, cotton, yarn scraps, etc.). Finish the piece by sewing together the parts.
