Format: Paperback
This book was the very last entry when I typed in Amigurumi (translated as crocheted or knitted toys) but it had a great "Look Inside" section which shows all the items you can make. I found that feature very useful for this sort of book and loved all of the cute creatures. The creatures include some clever uses of amigurumi including keyrings, a teddy bear head attached to a small handbag and a most unusual and enchanting chado tea set with tea pot and cups.

Another advantage is it being in UK Crochet Code instead of the normal American stitch names. This makes life a lot easier and you don't have to write out the pattern with the UK stitch names before you can safely make a start.

The book is written in a friendly playful style which makes it fun to read and also puts clothes on the animals which is unusual and fun to see.

I was not a beginner when I bought this book so I can't say truthfully that it is suitable for a beginner. They use the magic circle technique to get the toy started which could be quite tricky for a total beginner. Personally I prefer to chain 2 and then work the first round of double crochet stitches into the second chain away from the hook. However, you only need to know how to make a slip knot, chain stitch and double crochet to create all of these toys.

If you have any problems as a beginner have a look on YouTube and VideoJug for short films which show you how to start off. Also the websites Ravelry and Facebook can be useful for finding friends to help or just chat about your new found hobby.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have!

Having visited the V&A in London with my niece, we found this book and she was able to re-create these items with ease!

I gave it a go and managed to make my wife some of these (mouse, bear, and zebra) items. If a little girl and a man can make these following the instructions - anyone can.

Highly recommended if you wish to create a small present with a bit of thought and including some labour of love!!!

This is a really nice book. I found it useful for learning some good crochet techniques and the patterns are so cute! I like the explanations and instructions, they're simple to follow and straight-forward enough for even complete beginners to follow. I'll be using this book for quite a while! :)

Format: Paperback
This book is full of gorgeously cute designs and lovely pictures. I'm not new to Amigurumi but I started off with the simplest pattern which is the Egg bear and I was impressed with how easy to follow the pattern was. I then moved on to the Baby bunny and struggled to make heads or tails of the pattern for the head. Round four (2dc in next dc, dc in next 3 dc) rep around 32 stitches, round five (2dc in next dc, dc in next 5 dc) rep around 32 stitches, now I'm no maths genius but those number just don't add up.
Also there are discrepancies between the written pattern and the pattern summary given for each piece, written pattern rounds 6-12 dc around 40 stitches, pattern summary 7-12, 40 stitches. It took me way longer than it should have done to finish one small head and that was with reading rereading and then sort of making it up from other patterns and what I already knew from similar projects.
I was disappointed because almost everything in the book is on my to make list. If you're an experienced Amigurumi-ist then this book is lovely but it's not for a beginner in my view. Makes me wonder how such glaring mistakes were allowed to reach the published stage!

I was looking for some ideas for my gf and just randomly searched plush and this book came up...

surprisingly interesting and entertaining book that gave me lots of ideas for gifts and after finding a few materials, i was able to make and design some pretty appealing plushes.

if you want ideas on how to impress a loved one (preferably female) and want to do something imaginative, you can't go wrong with this book...

I had high hopes for this cute book but I have found repetitive errors in the robot pattern which has been disappointing. If this was the first pattern you attempted and you read such a confused mess you probably wouldn't go on to do any more. Having said that the animals are very sweet when you have finished them but you need to keep an eye on the final size measurements as some of the photos give the impression that the toy is going to be smaller than it actually turns out to be in my opinion. Its good that you have charts to follow as well as the words so when the words are wrong you can double check with the charts but you shouldn't really have to do this at all with a professionally published book, I guess no one actually tested the patterns before publishing or these errors probably would have been picked up.

I love this book!!

I made a few of the toys as a fundraiser for my sons school and got some orders as a result. The patterns are easy to follow and as the ones I have used so far only use one type of stitch, I think they are suitable for a beginner.

There are a few mistakes in the patterns but nothing major and I have been able to work out what it should have been easily. My favourite so far has to be the monkey.
