Amigurumi – The new fashion of crochet toys

In Northern Europe it is very common to see – in buses, trams, and metro – girls and ladies knitting, crocheting and even making crochet dolls from the latest fashion born in Japan about 10 years ago: “ Amigurumi “. “Dolls” to make you understand, but in reality they can be animals, dolls, characters from comics, movies, and many other things. And yes, we also have a couple around the house 🙂

What do the Amigurumi have in particular? who are very nice and children are obviously crazy about it! And they are also simple to do!

We discovered the fantastic illustrated book “Pica Pau”, with photos and detailed instructions, with 20 different animals, by the Argentine designer Yan Schenkel. I would say a fantastic gift per se, but also for friends who have a passion for crochet, or who want to make an original gift for some children! What’s better than a handmade Christmas present?

Here you will find the link to buy it on Amazon (the book is in English, and if you already know how to crochet it is very easy to follow)
