Children of all ages will love these wonderful Amigurumi characters. Amigurumi is the popular Japanese art of making stuffed crocheted toys, which is easy to learn and fast to do. The yarn is worked with a smaller size of hook than is usual for the weight of yarn, which produces a closely woven fabric without any gaps through which stuffing might escape. The cute figures are bound to become much-loved favourites in the toy box. The 11 toys featured are fun to make, and every project is accompanied by clear instructions describing how to achieve perfect results. You can follow them to the letter or use them as a basis for your own creations. In addition, a techniques section explains all the basic skills needed, making them suitable for experienced crocheters and novices alike. Quick to make, these designs are an ideal way of using up oddments of yarn and make perfect portable projects for crocheters on the go.
