First Impression: If you love amigurumi, or cute toys, you will enjoy this book.
Favorite Project: Hard decision, but I’m going to go with the turtle. He’s just cute!
Review: While these projects are small, they have a personality all their own. They’re cute and fun, and would make a great gift for anyone who loves animals or amigurumi. The thing that I love most about softies is that they almost always use single crochet, so they’re great for beginners that are ready to try some shaping using basic stitches. Plus, they work up quickly with an F hook and some #4 yarn. Martingale has also included general information – gauge, terms, abbreviations, yarn, and more.
Bonus: There are templates for the felt pieces so you can just trace and cut them out. In addition to the templates, there are also photo tutorials for sewing pieces together as well as attaching eyes and extremities.
I’ve only shown you a few of my favorites. You can click on any of the photos, or the link under the cover photo, to go to Martingale‘s website and see the rest of the projects.
