Amigurumi is the Japanese art of making knitted or crocheted stuffed animals, and it is taking the world by storm. These toys can be a simple or as complex as the maker likes--ranging from a tiny fluffy chick to an elaborate textured elephant. This book provides all the information you need to get started, with tips on choosing yarns and needles, and instruction in core techniques. All of the animal characters can be created using key shapes such as spheres, eggs, cylinders, and flat circles, which are quick and easy to stitch and put together. Includes clear step-by-step instructions for making 15 adorable animals, including a frog with webbed feet, a lion with a crocheted mane, and a cuddly mohair rabbit, plus ideas for creating your own unique designs.
