Adorable, but not for a complete beginner!,
This review is from: Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts! Amigurumi (Crafts) (Paperback)
I love this book. The patterns are truly adorable. I couldn't resist, and made the Little Teddy Bear the day the book arrived! And I didn't find the mistake another reviewer mentioned?
I would not reccommend this book for a beginner, only because the patterns are written in such an unconventional way - little symbols for ((American notation)) single crochet, increase and decrease. Granted the little symbols make it very clear and easy to follow, but I think it would be more useful for a beginner to first learn to follow patterns as they are traditionally set out to avoid confusion later! Maybe that's just me :)
It also has very little basic stitch instruction, unlike 'Lacy Crochet' (another 'KYUUTO!' book). Not a problem if you already know what you're doing though!
Lovely patterns, quick and easy to make, and could easily be adapted to suit your whims.
