3.0 out of 5 stars promising but many mistakes, 13 Dec 2010
This review is from: Amigurumi Knits: Patterns for 20 Cute Mini Knits (Paperback)
Half good half bad here -

Many of the patterns here are worthwhile and really inventive, the design and ingenuity is very impressive and if you get to the end, the results are enchanting. Most of the instructions are very well presented and the whole book has a nice friendly feel and lots of information.

However, there are genuine mistakes throughout, and many more places where the instructions are ambiguous or misleading. I'm glad I own it, but my copy is stuffed full of my own notes and corrections on almost every page and this is certainly NOT a book for beginners. I found many of these patterns utterly infuriating, but I have certainly learned alot and improved my knitting through working with this book, at least partly because of the necessity to unravel and work around all the flaws. I wish I could give this a better rating because I love most everything included here and how it's put together, but the mistakes are just too many and too significant.
