Format: Paperback
I was very disappointed when I received Ami Ami Dogs 2 in the mail. A family member had pre-ordered it for me, and with how great the first book was, I was highly anticipating Mitsuki Hoshi's next book.

The contents contains the following dogs: Chihuahua, Jack Russell Terrier, Toy Poodle, Shih Tzu, Dalmatian, Papillon, Boston Terrier, Bernese Mountain Dog, Hokkaido Dog, Japanese Shiba, and Bull Terrier.

The Chihuahua and Papillon patterns are almost identical. The Bull and Boston terriers look also very much alike, and both are reminiscent of the pug pattern in the first book. The Japanese Shiba and Chihuahua appears in both books 1 & 2. Methinks the publisher just pushed the author for another quick book to turn out without giving her the time to really develop fundamental differences between the dogs. Also, there seems to be a huge group missing from these books: bigger dogs. Mitsuki Hoshi seems to focus on toy breeds rather than bigger breeds, which has me scratching my head only because bigger breeds are quite popular too. Golden Labs, German Shepherds, and St. Bernards are all popular dogs and are left out.

If I had to suggest one of the two books, I would suggest the first one. Having both is just oddly disappointing.

Full disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from Harper Design to review on my blog.

Some of you may already be familiar with Mitsuki Hoshi's work from her website. According to the Visitor counter, which is about the only thing on her website I can actually read, most of her visitors (over 35,000) are from Japan (not surprisingly), but she also has about 1,400 visitors from the U.S. Her books have been translated from Japanese into several languages, including English, Dutch, and French. Mitsuki Hoshi's work has appeared in pet magazines as well as craft books, and she also teaches amigurumi classes.

Ami Ami Dogs 2 is the follow up to her Ami Ami Dogs: Seriously Cute Crochet, which was published in English by Harper Design in February. My amigurumi book collection is fairly small (Annie Obaachan's Amigurumi Animals: 15 Patterns and Dozens of Techniques for Creating Cute Crochet Creatures, June Gilbank's The Complete Idiot's Guide to Amigurumi, and Amy Gaines's Cute Little Animals (Leisure Arts #4271)), so I was looking forward to seeing the review copy for Ami Ami Dogs 2.

Ami Ami Dogs 2 is a great little book. As the name suggests, it is focused entirely on dog related patterns. There are "full size" (a strange word to use for amigurumi, I know!

i'm a professional crocheter. this book is full of mistakes, there's no errata anywhere, and although is sold for kindle it doesn't fit the kindle page at all. it looks like a scanned version of a book and you can't underline or enlarge the pages. instructions are written in such small characters that it's almost impossible to read them, and the translation from japanese leaves a lot to be desired.

If you like to crochet this is a really fun book of cute little dogs to make. I found the patterns a little hard to read since they are not translated to typical American crochet-language. It takes awhile to get used to the table-method. Once you get the hang of it they sure do come out well

This is a super cute but challenging pattern book. If you are used to crochet symbol charting, you will have no trouble. I have made quite a number of dogs from both Ami Ami Dogs books but they have required sustained concentration, much ripping out and re doing places, and eventually simply deciphering the chart, symbol by symbol, and translating it into American English written directions. I have been crocheting for 14 years and consider myself to be an advanced crocheter, but this was like calculus or quantum physics to me. HOWEVER, all of the dogs that I finished turned out to be adorable. Even if they didn't look exactly like the photos. I must admit that there are a number of rejected dogs that I ended up not embroidering and giving to my real dogs to play with. They don't care how much the pattern has stumped me as long as they can run around the house with it.

Another great book for the price but would not recommend for beginners unless familiar with working with charts, diagrams, crochet symbols, and working joined rounds. I made the Jack Russell Terrier and it turned out just like the picture. Charts are numbered from bottom to top and in the row column state rows backwards (i.e. 8-6 versus 6-8). The book uses the Jack Russell Terrier as an example, shows how to start with the magic circle, shows how to start crocheting the head and mouth, and how to stuff and stitch pieces together. Also has patterns for some magnets and cell phone accessories. Great book to get if you love amigurumi and dogs!
