If you love making amigurumi and crocheted toys – or if you want to learn how – then you’ll want to check out Dinosaur Amigurumi and Dumpling Cats, two fun new crochet books! Today I get to show off my own copies, and give away a set to one lucky Moogly reader, courtesy of Dover Publications!
Disclaimer: This giveaway was sponsored by Dover Publications, but all opinions are my own.
Dinosaur Amigurmi by Justyna Kacprzak is a pure pattern book – it presumes you know how to crochet already, and dives right into the patterns!
There are 14 patterns in Dinosaur Amigurumi, each of which is written in a minimalistic style – for instance, the second row of the first pattern reads: “Rnd 2 inc 6 times (12sts).” So it’s not absolute beginners, but if you know the basics of amigurumi they are very doable!
I actually really like the pattern writing style in Dinosaur Amigurumi – amigurumi uses such basic stitches, it makes sense to pare it back like this. But if you prefer a more intensive, step by step approach, then Dumpling Cats would be better to read first! (Luckily, I have a discount code for both – see below!)
Dumpling Cats by Sarah Sloyer is all about these super cute cats and animal amigurumi – each with their own little story! So cute!!
Inside Dumpling Cats you’ll find 25 different cat patterns – plus 3 “bonus” accessories patterns!
Dumpling Cats patterns include more detailed instructions – including a stitch glossary and lots of step by step photos! While this book won’t teach you to crochet either, it will teach you to crochet amigurumi! And then you can add some prehistoric pals with Dinosaur Amigurumi!
