Product description

Amigurumi (which means knitted stuffed toy) 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 animals. Jam-packed with four-color photographs of seriously cute dogs, as well as patterns and step-by-step instructions on how to make them, "Ami Ami Dogs: Seriously Cute Crochet" will inspire you to pick up the needle and thread like no other craft project. This book teaches crocheters: basic crocheting techniques (perfect for beginners!); spiral techniques to ensure stuffing will not come out; versatile uses (using thick yarn, each dog is about 3 inches long, suitable for an iPod case; using slender threads, each dog will be 1 inch long, suitable for a cell phone case); and, patterns and detailed directions for 12 kinds of dogs, including: Chihuahua, Welsh Corgi, Shiba, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Miniature Dachshund, Siberian Husky, Labrador Retriever, Maltese, Miniature Schnauzer, French Bulldog, and Beagle Pug.
