I am quite experienced at crochet and was very excited to get this book (for my birthday :) I was very pleased at how clear and concise the pictures and directions are - even a beginner will have no trouble making these sweet little animals. Unlike other amigurumi books, this one included lots of fun extras (like zookeepers and felt food) to make even better gifts or play sets. Although I already knew how to do all the stitches in the book (they are very clearly explained with pictures for those who do not), I was pleasantly surprised to find that there were several tips about tracing patterns, stuffing, and finishing that I was unaware of. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys crochet or would like to learn since it is a thorough teaching manual & contains many awesome animals.I can't remember if there is a list on the description but this book contains penguins, harp seals, walrus, polar and grizzly bear, panda, lion and tiger, rhinoceros, elephants, hippo, zebra, giraffe, primates (a whole bunch), kangaroo and joey, zookeepers (again, a bunch), and felt zoo food.The only way I think this book could have been better is if it were spiral bound so it would lay flat while you were following the pattern. Otherwise, it is an excellent addition to my crochet collection.
The patterns in this book are so cute and easy to do. The different body pieces are modular, so many are shared between the various animals, which makes the learning curve for doing multiple animals much simpler. I highly recommend this.
All of the animals are super cute! With the instructions on the first few pages anyone can pick this book up and start crocheting right away, no experience needed. I have some experience but the diagrams helped me fix what I couldn't get from other crocheting books. I have standing orders for gifts. :)
great patterns... nice sculpting technique for heads and bodies.. baboon is just too cute!!! nice touch adding the zookeepers.. more patterns on ravelry too!!
cute designs but the patterns are a little more challenging than Zoomigurumi 1 and 2. I would recommend this book for someone other than a beginer.
The grandkids just love these and so do their friends and their teachers. They are so much fun to make and take so little time and yarn.
Vary good book easy to read love every zoo animal. Haven't made all of the yet. Love that on the kindle you can mark you spot with out ruining pages, after I'm finished I can reset all the book makes.
Love it! very talented the author, I hope she keep sharing her creations, easy instructions and ilustrations, good for beginers.
