4.0 out of 5 stars simple patterns, good results., 29 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amigurumi Two!: Crocheted Toys for Me and You and Baby Too (Paperback)
I bought this book a little while ago and have so far made one of the baby turtles and a egg shell for it (as seen on front of book) which is a favourite with my duaghter. I've also made a pear 'box' with a snail to go inside and I've started the Tiger and seen on the cover. Everything I've made so far has been really quick (make in one evening) and simple, although I have picked some of the smaller items, so others would probably take a a bit longer, but all the patterns appear to be very similar so if you can do one you can do them all. Very basic crochet required. I've only used chain and double stitch (single stitch as described in the book which follows American crochet terminology) as far as I remember.

Because the patterns are all very similar it does start to feel a little tedious making items however. Its great if you simply want to make toys, but if you are after inspiring crochet techniques this is not the book for you. However, having said that the designs are easily adapted to make your own patterns. I've used the patterns to make a pump to go on a home made blood pressure monitor I made this week and I've also made a little baby chick and a frog using the same technique (which I didn't know beforehand).

One of the main problems is choosing what to make as there are so many lovely toys including, a tea set and biscuits, a baby bunny and her mummy, a baby with a nappy, a tool set and various mobiles and rattles for babies to name but a few. There is bound to be something to please all. A lovely book.
