Get ready to meet some incredibly cute critters! Amigurumi–the
Japanese art of crocheted dolls–continues to charm crocheters around
the world with their small size and appealing features. That’s why we
decided to reintroduce these adorable zoo animals by Cindy Harris. These
little figures are so quick and fun to make, you may be tempted to
crochet the entire collection for yourself, your friends, and all the
youngsters you know. Projects include Monkey, Brown Bear, Hippo, Tiger,
Rhino, Giraffe, Polar Bear, Zebra, Elephant, Alligator, and Lion.
Designs are made using US Meduim #4 – Worsted weight yarn, this is UK
Aran weight. Crochet hook size F (3.75mm). If you can’t get hold of of a
suitable Aran weight yarn, these animals will work well in a DK yarn
but remember to go down a size of hook to 3.50mm (or 3.25mm if your
tension is loose).
Book includes general instructions including; Abbreviations, Crochet
terminology US to UK, Yarn table, Crochet Hook conversion and extra
stitch techniques including diagrams. .
Projects include Monkey, Brown Bear, Hippo, Tiger, Rhino,
