The patterns are very simple and that's the strength of this book, in my opinion. After making several toys from this book, I was able to make my own "freestyle" patterns. I adapted her hedgehog pattern, along with the donkey pattern from the Kyuuto book (another excellent resource) and made an amigurumi alpaca. Go figure.
Although all of the patterns have the same basic look, this book, more than the others, has gotten me to experiment and create my own little beasts without written directions. That's a huge step for a beginner at crochet and quite an accomplishment for an author. I highly recommend this book as the first book you purchase on amigurumi. It will give you a good start, use up your yarn stash, and move you towards creating your own designs.
As mentioned already, the author has a lovely blog where she shares a few free patterns with her readers and shows off her latest creations. [...]
Having said all of this though, this is a fantastic little book, and I only wish there were more projects to do! The projects are quick and easy, and very cute. My kids like to look through the book, and tell me what they want me to make, and in fact I am working on the Daddy Lion, and the Little Pear right now. Patterns included in this book are: Valentines Bears (boy and girl bears), baby lion and his daddy, puppy and his daddy, baby monkey and her daddy, baby penguin and her mommy, baby owl and her mommmy, baby hedgehog and her mommy, boy and girl elephants, baby octopus and her mommy, mr. and mrs. cactus, happy eggs, smiling desserts, tiny ami, little pear and little apple with worm.
The author sells other patterns on etsy, I tried to contact her about patterns for house pets, such as guinea pigs, hamsters, hermit crabs, etc...I think these would be really fun to crochet because they could be crocheted to look like a child's pet, but she never responded to me. Oh well! For any amigurumi crochet designers, or publishers out there, I think an amigurumi "pet" book would be a great idea!!!
All in all, very well done! I am really looking forward to another book by this author, and will be the first to pre-order it when it becomes available!
(As a side note, I acidentally clicked 4 stars, when I really meant 5, when I tried to come back in and edit this, Amazon would not let me. Sorry to the author.......I really think your book is a 5 star book!)
