From adorable fuzzy critters, to sweet-looking fruits and vegetables, to quirky comic book and cartoon characters—if you can imagine it, you can crochet it!

Amigurumi (pronounced ah-mee-goo-roo-mee) is Japanese for "crochet (or knit) stuffed toy." Although the concept originated in Japan, the amigurumi craze is taking over the world in waves of crocheted cuteness!

Whether you''re an experienced crocheter or have never taken hook to yarn, Amigurumi shows you everything you need to know to hook your own delightful amigurumi. This helpful guide includes:

   • Tips for following an amigurumi pattern, helpful photographs, and four start-to-finish patterns to give you a head-start on designing your own.

   • Easy-to-follow tutorials for getting started, increasing and decreasing, working in the round, changing colors, and more.
   • Expert advice on adding eyes, hair, jointed limbs, clothes, and other fun accessories to your ami.
