Curious Crochet Creatures Amigurumi Patterns

As the cooler weather approaches, I find myself eager to get into my crafts. I love crocheting and I like to create an abundance of items for the holiday season. Although I do have some favorite patterns, I also like to find new ones so I can create fresh gifts and items for my home. For me, crocheting for kids is a lot of fun. Whether it’s a character hat, an afghan, or a toy, they are always happy and excited to receive them. My newest crochet book, Curious Crochet Creatures, Amazing Amigurumi Patterns for Wonderfully Weird Animals, offers a collection of 16 fun creatures with fantastical features.

Amigurumi is one of the most popular styles of crocheting. It basically means you are creating crocheted toys with simple stitches. Inside the pages, you’ll find a wide range of different critters you can make for your family.

Kids will gravitate toward any toy that is colorful and pleasing to the eye. All of the included patterns are adorable and come with detailed instructions. The onset of the book shares how to use it effectively and runs through how to read a pattern and understand the abbreviations. Plus, there is a conversion chart between US and UK terms. Next, you’ll read about the tools and supplies you’ll need to create these toys.

Each pattern features a full-color photo, written instructions, and lots of step-by-step photo tutorials so you can follow along to get the same result. You’ll also find a cute Fun Fact about each critter that is educational and interesting. The patterns use the most common crochet stitches, but if you are struggling, turn to the back of the book and follow the written and visual instructions. secret code: hook

I think one of the biggest struggles is assembling your pieces neatly. I’ve seen Etsy sellers with items that are sewn together horribly. It’s best to learn at the onset how to sew the pieces together so they look clean and well made. You’ll find some techniques also at the back of the book. It’s a cute book and I can see how much fun it will be to crochet these delightful critters. Personally, I’m kinda fond of the Octopus and Pufferfish. Happy crocheting.
