    amigurumi books

    Does anyone know of any good amigurumi books? Most of the ones I've seen online are in Japanese, and I'd like to see how the patterns are written before I buy it. I've used Japanese beading books before, and the patterns use less written word and more descriptive pictures than anything else.

    What is an amigurumi book? I've heard of the name but I don't actually know what one is. The writer of this blog is into Japanese craft books and writes about the projects she makes from them. Maybe you could ask her a few questions or have a look at her projects.

    "amigurumi" means knitted doll in Japanese (this also is translated to mean "crocheted doll"). I've come across some awesome patterns online, for purchase and for free, (roxycraft being one of them), but I'm really interested in some the Japanese designs, and I'd like to be able to thumb through a book (or get a review of a book from a fellow non-Japanese-reading crafter).

    I've ventured a little bit into making up my own patterns for it, but there are some shapes that I just can't seem to make correctly, and I think having a nice reference would help very much.
