I have bought many Amigurumi books lately, as I am now addicted to this quick and fun way of crocheting, and this book is the best yet.
At first I was slightly taken aback by the fact that you need to follow the Japanese style patterns, but quickly found that this was easy enough with a little practice.
It has the clearest step by step colour photographs to show exactly what your work should look like of any book I have come across. Every stitch is also very clearly demonstrated and illustrated and the little dogs are just so cute that this book is a 'must have' for any Ami fan. Mitsuki Hoshi is spot on. Buy it!

Great book! Nice photos, the instructions are clear and I want to make nearly all of the projects! Great for people just starting off, and for more advanced readers. The breeds are mainly variations on one design, but this allows for experimentation which unless you are an advanced hooker you might not get with other designs.

Lots of information about the products to use, and how to assemble your own amigurumi dogs. It uses American jargon, so you'll need to convert if you are used to UK.

I have bought this book as a present for my mum as she would like to do some little dogs for her grand- children. She is not very experienced at crochet but she knows the very basic stitches which is what you need to know for this type of work. The patterns are very easy to follow as they are not text-based but little diagrams ( I have the same book in Japanese and I have been working using the same diagrams), and the little dogs are gorgeous.
Very fast and easy to do, I would definetly advise the book for others.

UK buyers should know that the hook sizing is in the US format (e.g. 2/0), so you may need to use conversion chart for UK mm equivalents. Yarn thickness is illustrated in a picture showing balls of yarn with the finished dogs sitting on them. I haven't checked, but this seems pointless unless the image is to scale, so it will be much easier to convert than looking up metre-age/100g or estimating 'lace-weight', 'worsted', 'DK' or '2-ply' as final size is not critical.
The dogs featured are of the 'wide-angle lens picture' type with big noses and surprised expressions. The breeds are not what I consider to be ordinary common UK family pets though - chihuahua, French bulldog, schnauzer rather than collies and terriers.
The patterns are multi-part and modular with different noses, ears and bodies, so combining various body parts it should be possible to re-create the family dog.
Each dog is pictured in 3 sizes, from 2" and a bit to a little over 1" but the sizing is all achieved by varying the size of crochet hook and thickness of yarn used. There is also an option to make a phone charm size.

It takes a while to get used to the way these patterns are written and probably not for a new crocheter, but they are such cute dogs I just love them. I think the book would be easier to use if it was spiral bound as you need to keep it open while following the design but as it is bound quite tightly it keeps closing

This is a gorgeous inspiring book! Not for beginners though! I have been crocheting for years and had a struggle at first to follow the patterns - probably because it is ages since I used a chart. Lovely little animals though and the book is lovely to look at.Would make a nice present for an experienced crocheter.
