The Amigurumi Collection by Inside Crochet

I bought this book awhile ago. I had plans to make many of the projects. Here are three of them.  I love the chicken!  I decided to not make some of the patterns as they had fabric embellishments and I find those hard for my fingers to do.  The book is written in UK terms. I find as long as I know that, it is easy to make the stitch conversions in my head.  The patterns are by a variety of designers.

Blanket Yarn

Sarah at RepeatCrafterMe always has fun patterns for Bernat Blanket Yarn. Recently I made a giant crochet hook (pattern here) and a jellyfish (pattern).

Jellyfish seem to becoming popular (at least in the crochet realm). This guy was so fun to make. The tentacles were so easy. You tie them on the bottom and then whipstitch the bottom to the top – so easy! The crochet hook posed more problems for me. I had a hard time understanding her instructions for the hook but I made it work somehow.
