From the jungle to the forest to the farm to your home, Abbondio's crochet book has crafters' need for cute crochet animals covered. Each of the 26 patterns have clear, easy-to-follow instructions, but American crocheters will have to "translate" the UK crochet terms into U.S. stitches before picking up their hook. Other than that slight hiccup, this book is perfect for crocheters new to amigurumi. The stitches are mostly single crochet with simple increases and decreases. Some design elements, such as the lion's mane and the cow's udders, require a slightly more complicated popcorn stitch. Even those who have never worked in the round before or made an adjustable ring will find that Abbondio's patterns provide a great introduction to that work. Most of the animals share the same basic body pattern, with the giraffe, mouse, panda, and hedgehog standing as the outliers; each of these four has a unique body type. Experienced amigurumi makers will enjoy the cuteness as they quickly whip up these small and delightful creatures. A must-have for all library craft collections.-- Lynnanne Pearson * Booklist *
