Amigurumi Dolls

by Sachiyo Ishii

Have fun with the Japanese art of amigurumi and crochet 40 fabulous dolls in a variety of outfits.

Choose from firefighters, knights, police officers and baseball players, or maybe you'd prefer to make a cute doll dressed as a bumblebee, bunny rabbit, angel or princess, or celebrate some traditional folk costumes from around the world. Whether you are making a unique gift to mark a birthday, wedding, Christmas or Easter, or a special reward for passing an exam or joining a sports team, there will be a doll in this collection that will be the perfect fit. 

Each project is based on one of three basic doll designs ranging from approximately 8-13 cm (3-5 inches) tall. These basic patterns are presented at the start of the book, along with information on how to sew up your dolls, stuff them, and add their facial features and hairstyles. Only a few basic crochet stitches are needed, and these delightful dolls are perfect for using up scraps of yarn from your stash.
