Reasons to buy crochet animal books

Besides the obvious reason, which is to have unique, curated, and edited Amigurumi patterns in a high-quality printed book. What else would you buy crochet Animal books for?

  • They are great for gifts, either for yourself or for a crochet lover friend or family.
  • It’s a fun “on-the-go” printed guide at the touch of your fingers, meaning you don’t have to rely on internet searches.
  • Books have high quality process shots and illustrations – most books will come with step-by-step photos and graphs. Which makes them beginner-friendly, and easy to follow guides.
  • They are great for making stuffed animals to sell at craft markets – but please check the terms of use first. Most book authors will allow you to sell the finished Amigurumi made from their patterns.
  • Supporting the designers you love – maybe you already buy their patterns or read them on blog posts. But now they are becoming an author, it’s a great way to support them.

Can you learn how to make Amigurumi from a book?

The short answer is: Maybe! There are plenty of books that come with step-by-step process photos that make it suitable for beginners. Some even offer QR codes you can scan to access video tutorials, so if you’re beginner, choose one of those that offer videos as well.

Generally, you will need to know the basics of Amigurumi making to be able to make the patterns in these crochet animal books. Such as single crochet in continuous rounds, single crochet increasing and decreasing.

However, if you are a complete beginner, I’ve included the Crochet Amigurumi Book by The Woobles in this list (book# 1). They have a YouTube channel with videos that teach you how to start from the beginning.

What are the easiest Amigurumi animals to crochet?

Usually, crochet cylindrical Kawaii style animals, such as bees, cats, jellyfish, and octopuses are the easiest. In addition, these are the most common patterns you will find in crochet animal books and online as well.

If you are familiar with the basics of Amigurumi, you will be able to make some of the more complex patterns as well. All you need is some practice and patience; and remember, perfection will come with time. 

My recommendation is that you read through the listing description and customer reviews before ordering a book. And don’t panic if you think the patterns look too complicated, there are tons of free YouTube tutorials out there to learn the basics.
