The third book of wonderful amigurumi patterns is here! “Make happy amigurumis in crochet" is stuffed full of delightful creatures, new techniques and wonderful, practical creations.

And as in the previous books there are of course crochet lessons and patterns of every degree of difficulty so that both beginners and accustomed crochet practitioners can find the right project for them.

Mia Bengtsson’s first book “Crochet amigurumis" was released in 2009 and took all of Sweden’s craft enthusiasts by storm and transformed attitudes to crochet. That book, which was the first of its kind in Swedish, inspired both adults and children, young and old to dig out their long-forgotten crochet hooks and make charming creatures in the Japanese amigurumi style.

For many crochet workers Mia Bengtsson’s creations have become the symbol of amigurumi, which means crocheted or knitted soft toys in Japanese, and she even has her own fan club on Facebook! The author also shares tips and tricks on her blog: www.foxypanda.se
