Adorable Amigurumi – Craft Book Review

 A crochet pattern book for Cute and Quirky Crocheted Critters




Adorable Amigurumi Craft Pattern Book


Serious cuteness in Japanese Amigurumi crochet – the yarn-filled world of “small, crocheted stuffed toys”. This book contains patterns for new characters that are adorable and cuddly.  


Marcel the Monkey
Craft a Koala Bear or a not-so-fearsome Yeti. Try out a darling dragon or a Dachshund Dog.  Pick a zoo or jungle animal with these patterns for a cute giraffe, a lovable lion or Marcel the Monkey.


Then there are funny characters to crochet, such as a Dust Bunny or Sy Clops.



Dragonfly


A Dragonfly, a Butterfly and a Bug-eyed Ladybug will flit around your child's toy room. 


For fans of sea creatures, Adorable Amigurumi has patterns for Tubs the Whale, Olive Octopus and Cal I.Mari. 


Toucan


Don't forget Bella la Batty – a fun toy bat, or a colorful Toucan bird.




Author of Adorable Amigurumi


Erin Clark, a crochet crafter since age six, calls herself Voodoo Maggie online. She admits that her crochet crafting at such a young age first only consisted of the chain stitch. In fact, she once chained a whole skein of yarn! (Fellow crochet crafters will understand what this would look like – LOL). 


Eventually she mastered scarves and afghans. These turned out fine for gifts, but soon it became boring to crochet only flat things.  After looking around for something more challenging, Erin discovered the magical world of Amigurumi. The reason she gives for loving Amigurumi so much is because, to her, it's like 'sculpting' with yarn.


After mastering this craft, Erin began to create her own patterns in the style of Amigurumi crochet.  The end result is Adorable Amigurumi ~ filled with patterns of delightful and unique crocheted critters from the imagination of Voodoo Maggie.


Summary



Adorable Amigurumi Craft Book crochet contains patterns for 18 animals done in the Amigurumi style of crochet. The instructions in the book will walk you through step-by-step directions to make your own creations of these delightfully playful Japanese amigurumi animals. The book is also full of over 300 colorful photos to help guide you.


So, get out your favorite yarns and crochet hooks and pick a pattern to begin your collection of these cute toybox toy stuffies.

  1. What great fun this would be! I love all the critters that you come up with too Pat. I think I'm getting lazy in my retirement, but I should be able to work something cute up while I can still work my fingers. Thanks for some much needed inspiration!

  2. Oh, they are so adorable! I love the toucan. I took a look "inside the book" on Amazon and saw the awesome giraffes too. I totally overlooked the giraffe in the book cover image. You know I love giraffes. These cute amigurumi animals would make any crocheter want to grab their hooks and start crocheting immediately.

    1. Actually, Mouse, I did not know you liked giraffes. I've crocheted a few in my time, both big and little. :) I'll have to see if there is a 'Giraffe Day'. LOL.

    1. Thanks, Mary Beth. I love looking through crochet pattern books, especially the Amigurumi style ones. They are all so cute. I just finished an cute Alien from one this week.

  4. Elf, my mental image of the author chaining an entire skein of yarn had me in stitches (so to speak)! These adorable amigurumi animals share the same wonderful sense of whimsy we have come to know and love in your own lovable crocheted critters. No doubt the step-by-step directions developed by a self-taught crocheter make the delightful world of creating amigurumi accessible for even novice needleworkers.

    1. I loved the author's story, Margaret. And I can just picture the length of a chain made from a whole skein of yarn. Must have been miles long. LOL.

  5. CUTE! All of my crochet is on pause because I am so busy with work and trying to get things done at home. I had crocheted a character from a fish game for my grandson. And a plush rabbit after that. I wanted to do more stuffed critters but just haven't had the time or mental energy. Thank you for this review.

    1. Your crochet will wait for you to have time again, Dawn Rae. Life always gives us priorities to deal with. I've 'paused' sometimes for 'years' before getting back to my crochet. Retirement gave me the time... LOL.
