Book Description

Using the Japanese art of amigurumi, learn how to crochet 20 cute heroes and heroines! Not only will they become beloved keepsakes, they will also celebrate the lives of icons such as Jane Austen, Frida Khalo, Maya Angelou, Pablo Picasso, Muhammad Ali, and Bruce Lee. From World War 2 heroes such as Josephine Baker to talented musicians and actors including Prince and Audrey Hepburn, everyone will find a crocheted character in this book to inspire them. 

Each project begins with a short description and lists the yarn type and colours used, but readers should feel free to use whichever brand and colours they prefer. The clear instructions are accompanied by a gorgeous photograph of the finished character and close-up photos demonstrating the trickier stages. At the end of the book you will find all the stitches and techniques needed to crochet the figures, all clearly illustrated with diagrams.
