The Japanese craze for Amigurumi (crocheted stuffed toys) is explored in miniature in this fun new title in the Cozy series. These tiny treasures can be used in a variety of imaginative ways – as key rings, charms, hair accessories, in your dolls’ house or just admired as cute trinkets in their own right. Charming and precious, these projects may be small but they are bursting with personality, making perfect gifts for friends and family.
Mini Amigurumi has all the basic crochet techniques you will need and are clearly explained along with step-by-step illustrations. Anyone unsure about working in this scale can simply practice with larger hooks and thicker yarn – the patterns are exactly the same.
Projects include: Kokeshi doll, cupcake, strawberry, fairy toadstool, turtle and three little kittens.
