This is a great reference and skills builder. It also can be supplimented by the author's videos on YouTube and her website. One major price I thought the book was missing sadly was the techniques on the web having to do with perfect stripes. I would have loved a photo reference for those. Overall the book was very useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential book for making Amigurumi! Feb. 5 2013
By Sarah
If you want to make good Amigurumi, and especially if you want to create your own patterns, you NEED this book.

I just started crocheting a couple of months back and have had this book for about 6 weeks. It has been invaluable and I've already made several toys from my own patterns.

The other Amigurumi books available are great for patterns, however they do not help if you need to learn the craft itself.

This book has everything you need to make amigurumi and has great and simple tips for making your work better.

This should be the first book you buy if you want to learn how to make amigurumi. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, clear instruction Nov. 28 2011
By Lee
I've been making amigurumi for about a year but I learned a lot of great tips and tricks from this book that have already made me a better "amigurumist." (And just in time for making Christmas presents!) June's background in technical writing shines through with her clear, easy-to-follow instructions and I love that she continually encourages the reader to be creative and make modifications to make their own unique creations. I'd highly recommend this book for any budding amigurumist or anyone just wishing to kick their craft up a notch.
