Ilaria Caliri, Amigurumipatterns.net, £11.50
Once you get hooked on amigurumi, the Japanese art of making little crochet characters, you’ll never look back. This new collection of projects by Ilaria Caliri provides fresh inspiration with 15 patterns on a winter theme, from a nativity scene to a Christmas elf and Santa’s delivery express train, not to mention a jolly Father Christmas himself!
Perfect for decorating your home, unique Christmas tree hangings or to surprise your family and friends with handmade gifts, this winter crochet
book is ideal for spending a drizzly afternoon with a small amount of yarn and instantly transporting yourself to a magical winter wonderland.
An experienced amigurumi maker, Ilaria’s patterns can already be found in the popular Zoomigurumi book series and she blogs at www.besenseless.
blogspot.com. Sprinkled with Ilaria’s trademark creativity, these festive designs put a new spin on traditional characters, such as the super-sweet reindeer with his woolly jumper, the penguin playing with a pile of pom-poms, the elf balloon laden with gifts, or the adorable snowman wearing earmuffs.
The patterns are marked as easy, intermediate or advanced and all are customisable so you can have fun with colours, facial features and accessories.
There’s also an introduction to the techniques and stitches you’ll need, so beginners and experienced crocheters alike can enjoy this charming collection.
