Amigurumi! Super Happy Crochet Cute Pattern Book

Amigurumi!: Super Happy Crochet Cute I just picked up this cheeky and cheery crochet book, and it made me a smile a bunch. Not just because the projects are so so cute and quirky -- the patterns are well-written, too. Plus, they use inexpensive, available-everywhere worsted weight yarn. What's not to love?

The patterns do range in complexity, they start out easiest with some adorable edibles. The first project is a carrot. You may never have known that you wanted to crochet a carrot, but I advise it. First, it's darn cute, and second, it will help you learn how to do amigurami, which just means oddly cute crochet items usually done in a tight gauge and crocheted in a round.

The carrot, strawberry, cheeseburger and even the fish skeleton, are warm-ups for the cuddly animals. I'm very partial to the piglet. The big eyes and colorful polka dots are just too charming. Of course, the fawn will touch the heart of any Bambi-watching loyal American, it's really that nice.

The final and most difficult section is the humanioids. Choose from a cat, a monkey, a rabbit, and a girl bear. They've got cute outfits that are both a challenge to crochet and a joy to customize. The possibilites are endless for creating your own unique twist.

Definitely the best book that I've seen in the cuteness craze that is Amigurami.
