Product Description

From the Back Cover

Capture the magic of Christmas with darling amigurumi

These adorable crocheted characters and their miniature accessories tell the heartwarming classic story of " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas." Easy-to-follow instructions will teach you to make a jolly Santa and his eight reindeer, stockings to hang by the chimney, a wreath for the window, the little boy and girl, and the woodland creatures that watch the night unfold. Directions for turning them into Christmas ornaments for the tree are also included.

About the Author

Clement C. Moore (1779–1863), an American scholar and poet, first wrote The Night Before Christmas in 1822 to entertain his children. A friend submitted it to a local newspaper, The Troy Sentinel, where it was published on December 23, 1823. Moore's delightful description of St. Nicholas and his eight flying reindeer has since become the definitive portrait of Santa Claus.

Mitsuki Hoshi started her journey as a self-taught amigurumi maker when she purchased her first Mickey Mouse amigurumi kit. In 2002, she launched a website dedicated exclusively to amigurumi dogs. The site caught the attention of several dog magazines and became a huge hit. Today, as an accomplished amigurumi artist, her goal is to crochet everything from foods to animals. In her spare time, she works as an instructor, teaching students how to make amigurumi.

Her published works include Life of an Amigurumi Dog, Life of an Amigurumi Dog 2, Life of an Amigurumi Dog 3, Ami Ami Restaurant, Mitsuki Hoshi's Amigurumi Zoo, Amigurumi Cats and Friends, Mitsuki Hoshi's Traveling Amigurumi, and Adorable Amigurumi with Giant Heads.

Every character from the famous poem recreated in little crochet figures. Beyond cute & fantastic if you want to create an unusual Christmas display. Included are comprehensive and clear step by step photo instructions as well as written ones and charts. All of these make it easy to make these characters if you are new to amigurumi or to check your technique if you're more experienced. Highly addictive! Equally highly recommended.

Recommened to anyone that like to make Chrsitmas decorations.

I have just received this book in the post and it's adorable. I love the pictures to accompany the well known festive poem. They are super cute and very well done. For me the book is just perfect as I am an experienced crocheted but I can understand others comments. The patterns for each character are not patterns but charts and diagrams. If you have done amigurumi before these are simple enough to understand and follow. But if you are new to crochet or new to amigurumi I would not recommend this book for the patterns.

I would also say that both the Santa and his reindeer l

I found this book whilst searching for Christmas themed crochet books for Kindle. Finding only 2 I purchased both and I have not been disappointed with my purchase. I almost didn't purchase this one due to the negative reviews, so pleased I did! I hope my review will help in some way as it is a great book.
This book does have charts, the author takes care to explain the symbols used, I.e. X = DC(UK) SC(USA). With each chart is a table detailing the row number how many stitches per row and how many stitches have been increased or decreased during that row. I found it easier to understand the charts by seeing how
many stitches are in row one, completing those, marking my last stitch, then reading the next row, and continuing through all rows. The charts are spiral as the technique used does not join with a slip stitch, but once the first i.e 6 stitches have been worked, the next stitch is worked into the first stitch at which point the simple spiral chart makes sense.
charts also include colour guides indicating change a of colour. To help further there are very detailed photos explaining all techniques used and photos showing the placement of each component of every model. There is a clear detailed guide to help make a reindeer. At the beginning of each model are clear detailed instructions explaining how to make up each character.
Definitely a springboard to sparking the imagination and getting the creative thoughts flowing!
Just thought I had better say I do not know the author or publisher, just a very satisfied customer.

There is not one finished pattern in the entire book. No antlers for the reindeer. No written instructions for the ornaments, charts only. And with a kindle edition, the charts aren't big enough to actually read them. If I were GIVEN the actual book, I'd give it or throw it away.

I love looking through this book and dream of being able to act out the story using the fantastic crochet characters with the young children that i work with. The only trouble is I'm really struggling with the charts which I find difficult to follow. Would happily buy this book again if anyone knows of one that has patterns rather than charts.

The patterns in this book are lovely. They will be perfect for me to make as Christmas presents. I'll look out for more patterns by this designer.
