Amigurumi Crochet: Farm and Forest Animals

50497457. sx318

Farm and Forest Animals is an adorable tutorial collection with 26 patterns for crochet animals by Kristen Rask. Due out 16th Feb 2021 from Quarto on their becker&mayer! imprint, it's 128 pages and will be available in paperback format (earlier edition available in other format). 

These designs are adorable and very appealing. The book contains 26 different forest and farm animals including the expected monkey, cow, pig, tortoise, and mouse... and also some rather more unexpected ones including a pilot duck, alpaca, skunk, and a wonderful hedgehog. The projects are from a number of different designers scattered all over the world and the book gives links to their design websites in the appendix. 

The book does include a *very* general basic how-to-crochet tutorial, but I imagine that readers unfamiliar with the basic processes of crochet will need some extra help from youtube or a friend/mentor to be able to complete the tutorials in the book. 

Each of the tutorial chapters include tools and supplies, basic descriptions, step by step construction tutorial along with multiple clear color photos. All of the animals are very cute and would make perfect gifts. Many of the tutorials also have accessories (the trash cans and fish bones which accompany the cat-gurumi tutorial made me giggle out loud). Templates for sewn/felt details are provided in the back of the book.

Five stars. Really cute patterns. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
