Dinosaur Amigurumi – Justyna Kacprzak

Who doesn’t love a dinosaur?  Justyna Kacprzak’s new book, Dinosaur Amigurumi (published by Dover, who kindly gave me a review copy through NetGalley), has instructions to crochet 14 different cute dino toys.

All of the patterns use Bernat’s Cotton-ish yarn, which works up to a standard DK weight.  There are written instructions, but no diagrams, and no pictures about how to assemble the toys beyond the pictures of the finished ones.  There’s also not much guidance for the new crocheter: do not expect to be able to learn crochet from scratch from this book.  For all that the shapes are very simple, you really do need some prior crochet experience to be able to follow the instructions.

But this would be a great addition to the library for anyone who makes amigurumi.
