Product Description

ABC Amigurumi takes readers on a tour of the alphabet, illustrating each letter with an adorable, crocheted animal. Sure to delight crafters of all levels - from the novice to the expert - the book also features detailed step-by-step instructions so you, too, can create and gift these irresistibly cute alphabet animals.

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting stuffed animals. The technique results in animals with large heads and small bodies, upholding the super cute aesthetic of amigurumi. Now, for the first time ever, explore the alphabet with these loveable handmade animals in ABC Crochet. Unlike traditional alphabet books, this is the first to illustrate each letter with a handmade, crocheted animal that will not only thrill young readers but will also inspire crafters.

Four-colour photographs of seriously cute figures represent each letter of the alphabet, and as a nod to the Japanese roots of amigurumi, the Japanese character for each animal is also included. In addition, the book will contain step-by-step detailed instructions for creating each of the animals. Whether you're a novice or an experienced knitter, these easy to follow instructions will allow you to create your very own collection of adorable amigurumi figures.

The book teaches crocheters:

  • Basic crocheting techniques (perfect for beginners!)
  • Spiral techniques to ensure stuffing will not come out
  • Versatile uses (using thick yarn, each animal is about 3 inches long; using slender threads, each animal will be 1 inch long)
  • Patterns and detailed directions for 26 animals including: Giraffe, Hedgehog, Bunny, Polar Bear, Seal, Kangaroo, Chicks, Turtles, Elephant, Koala Bear, Lion, Owl, Mouse and many more!
