Instructions not for me
on 17 September 2012
I really wanted to like these patterns, as the pictures are absolutely adorable!! I love love the animals included in the book, but for some reason following the instructions just doesn't achieve the same result for me!
My biggest problem is with the heads - there always seems to be a few extra rows which make weird shaped elongated heads - I have been crocheting quite a few amigurumi over the past few months, so for some patterns I have adapted the instructions and started decreasing sooner than indicated and have made them work. (And no matter how tight my crocheting is, they just look weird if I follow the instructions). There are no detailed instructions of where to attach eyes, legs, arms, etc, but the pictures are quite good and detailed to see it on the actual animal.
In any case, lovely pictures, lovely animals, there are so many to pick from and they usually come with a baby version!! Lovely inspiration.
