"Cute" is the only word to describe the twenty patterns found within this book by animator, Vanessa Chan. As she points out, "There are endless possibilities to create whatever you want with just a few stitches." You'll learn how with these patterns ranging from easy to complex. All projects are made with worsted weight yarn, and instructions for basic stitches and finishing will encourage even novices who want to dip their toes into the world of Amigurumi! As a bonus, many feature felt and embroidery embellishments. Starting simple, crocheters can proceed with each success! Beautiful and colorful full-page photos are helpful, and clever comments from each Ami are just plain fun: "Little Blue Bird" says, "I was tweeting before it was cool!" I know that I'll be hopping fast to make the "Rabbit" and many more!
