Here's a fun "Create-Your-Own-Monster "book that will appeal to both beginners and experienced crochet hobbyists. These monsters are small, and although they're just the least bit scary, they're mainly cute. That's because they are Amigurumi monsters! Amigurumi is a popular Japanese crochet method that uses the double-ring technique for making delightful miniature toy animals out of crochet yarn. This book concentrates on patterns for animals of the monster variety, presenting 25 original monster-making projects plus advice to readers on how they can design their own original Amigurumi animals. Author Annie Obaachan advises on yarns, crochet hooks, and other materials, and presents clear instructions for making:
  • A Halloween Monster Collection of Ghosts and Pumpkins
  • Purple Attack--a Miniature Octopus-like Monster
  • Dinky Dinosaur
  • Things with Wings . . . and many more
    Each of these funny little fellows averages four-to-six inches long. The book's easy-to-follow directions are complemented with more than 200 color illustrations.

    Creatures are simplistic but I fun. I liked seeing how to piece the shapes together and how to design your own. Good book for some afternoon fun. Read full review

    User Review  - Julie - Goodreads

    The pumpkin and ghost (pgs. 82-86?) were my favorites and the only ones I think I would make. This is fun to browse at the library but probably not necessary to buy, unless you are a big fan of crocheting cute monsters. Read full review
