Amigurumi books are a steal. If you take into consideration the price of individual patterns on Ravelry and Etsy, books are a bargain. I’m sharing my favorite, must have amigurumi books that every enthusiast should have in their library.
I love books. There is something special about holding them in your hands and flipping back and forth through their pages. I like the way they smell and how they fit in your hands. My amigurumi books are written in, have smudges on the pages and are well worn. To me, that’s a sign of a good book. It looks used. It reminds me of my favorite cookbooks that are covered in sauce stains and dog ears.
Sweet Crochet Friends is sure to be a new favorite amigurumi resource. In this amigurumi book recommendation I share the project I crocheted and all the adorable details.
Have you ever been in awe of someone’s talent, like really really impressed? This is exactly how I feel about the wonderfully talented Khuc Cay. I was beyond honored when she asked if I would like to preview her new amigurumi book, Sweet Crochet Friends
I’ve been a big fan of Khuc Cay’s amigurumi designs for quite some time. The first one I ever crocheted was her Kitsu the Fox pattern. His detailed face and unique clothing made him one of my favorite amigurumi projects ever.
This is a running list of all the amigurumi patterns I have personally used and where to find them! I added my own photos of each recommendation so that you can see an example of the patterns these designers offer. Hope you all find this helpful! Updated on 2/25/19

If you are a crocheter, I am certain that you have already seen the book, Animal Friends of Pica Pau. It has been all over social media! Countless crocheters are making the animals from its colorful pages.
I bought the book soon after it’s US release date in 2017. I was drawn to the unique characters on the cover and knew I had to have it. At the time I couldn’t even make amigurumi! I started with Victor Frog and so far I’ve made ten out of the twenty designs.
This book is my go-to for inspiration and patterns. Yan Schenkel’s ability to design such unique and adorable creatures is incredible. The puffin pattern is one of my absolute favorites! Not only are her patterns adorable but they can stretch beginner and intermediate crocheters skills. I learned how to read color charts from making Bonny Puffin.
Another one of my favorite designs is the panda. She is one of the easier patterns and I was able to complete her in half the time of other designs. Yan Schenkel’s ability to design animals with such personality is truly a gift.
There is no way I could ever choose which one is my favorite and I look forward to making each and every animal! Do yourself a favor and buy this book!
