Crochet is such a versatile craft, giving you free rein to make clothes, accessories, treats for your home… anything you can think of. But by far the most fun thing you can do with a hook and some yarn is create amigurumi figures. Whether you prefer to make dolls and figures, or be a bit more experimental (try ice cream with a smiley face!), there’s a world of cute creatures to be discovered. In this magazine we’ve brought together some of our favourite amigurumi projects from Simply Crochet magazine. There’s a chapter on ANIMAL MAGIC featuring bunnies, bears, penguins and more.

ami club is go!

I learned to crochet from my mum when I was little. She’d been crocheting for years, but always made the same afghan over and over again because she couldn’t read patterns.

My goal has always been to create animals that are suitable for anyone who can do a basic stitch. I’m always thinking, “What can I teach someone in this pattern?” When I release a new pattern, it’s full of basic techniques, then I add a new technique and provide step-by-step photos – people are always making really adorable things and learning.
