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.

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.
