Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. Typically they are kooky little animals (in this case sea creatures) that are given faces.This booklet teaches playful knitters how to knit a hermit crab, a common octopus, a jellyfish, a black-devil anglerfish, a sea star, and a sun star. A knitting basics section provides abbreviations and all of the techniques needed to make the 6 included designs.
Hansi Singh began designing knit amigurumi creatures as playmates for her infant son. Hansigurumi, a shop she opened on Etsy for selling her amigurumi patterns, caught the attention (and needles!) of knitters in the US and abroad, and became an overnight success. Hailed an amazing up and coming crafter by CRAFT magazine.
