Author information

Hansi Singh (Seattle, WA) began designing knit amigurumi creatures as playmates for her infant son. Hansigurumi, a shop she opened on Etsy for selling her amigurumi patterns, caught the attention (and needles!) of knitters in the US and abroad, and became an overnight success. Hailed "an amazing up and coming crafter" by CRAFT magazine.

I loved the wierd and wonderful projects in this book - from the simple eartworm to the tricky hermit crab. The 20 pages of techniques accompaied by step by step phootgraphs, and the very detailed line-by-line instructions are invaluable. Start your spring knitting with he perfect antidote to those winter woolies! --Waterstones Crafts Newsletter, June, 2009A MUST HAVE! SO MUCH FUN The patterns are very well written and all the kinks are worked out. The "how too"s are are clearest I've ever read, and her pictures that help explain the pattern are helpful and well integrated. The patterns are fun to knit with a nice variety of difficulty, allowing quick projects, or more involved quick projects, or more for the more accomplished/patient knitter. Teativity are remarkable--J Hansen--Wonderfully tangy patterns. Well worth the purchase to get a chance to make these cute toys. Well written instructions every step of the way. --Treadwell--These are a collection of some of Hansi Singh's popular patterns. You can see many pictures of her patterns or buy these patterns individually on etsy.com or ravelry.com. She uses a lot of short row shaping. Excellent patterns that are very true to life. --craftzine, June, 2009; Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures.

I am very pleased so far, it is very descriptive, instructions are very easy to understand.
One wordof warning for all you average knitters, these are all knitted either on 3/4 double pointed kneedles or 2 round kneedles. So a bit fiddly but worth it in the end.
I would recommend this book to your average or experienced knitter...Knitting Needs
