Right when I got this beautiful book, it was promptly taken by my daughter and nieces because of how adorable all of the characters are. I let them flip through the book and pick which crochet dolls they wanted for their Christmas gift. The first dolls picked were Elise & Isobel the Best Friends!

Mei is an expert at designing kawaii amigurumi patterns and this book shows off that skill! These characters are overflowing with kawaii style – I mean just look at the best friends’ hats!

Perfect for leveling up your amigurumi crochet skills!

I would recommend Amigurumi People for intermediate crocheters or enthusiastic and patient beginners. The book includes detailed photo tutorials for every stitch and technique in the book, which were really helpful for the new-to-me techniques. It was great to go out of my comfort zone and try some of these new techniques, like using backstitches for the stripes on the shirt and doing a little stitch under the eyes to make them stand out more! But I would guess that if you are an absolute beginner, you may struggle with all of the small details and pieces to make and attach.

To make Elise the Best Friend, I used my favorite yarn and hooks – Ricorumi yarn by Rico Design and my Clover Amour hooks. I especially love using my Ricorumi yarn when I am using small amounts of many colors because the yarn balls are the perfect small size at 25g per ball! Ricorumi yarn can be hard to find in the US where I’m located, so I always get it from LoveCrafts. LoveCrafts has tons of great yarn and supplies and the shipping is either free or cheap and always tracked!
