First Impression: My first impression was that I want to make this adorable tugboat for myself! But seriously, if you like amigurumi projects you’ll find something you love in this book. The majority of the projects are animals, so if you love ami animals you’ll have a number of projects to add to your to-do list.

As always Martingale has included resources and extras beyond the patterns themselves. There is stitch help, resource section, and tips to name a few. You can click on the photos or the link under the cover to go the the Martingale site and see the book for yourself.

  • Kristine–just to thank you for the photos of how to make a magic ring. At 77 years of age I enjoy knitting, crochet, embroidery, rug hooking, weaving and spinning. I have NEVER been stumped as I was trying to understand the magic ring to go along with the book, Hello Kitty.
    After watching videos, even the Spanish version, yours was the only teaching that worked.
    So, on a sunny day, bone chilling cold outside and a fresh pot of tea. I thank you. Carole
