Combine Tunisian crochet with Amigurumi's and you've got a winning pattern book! This book includes 6 designs - a Whale, Tropical Fish, Tropical bird, Regal Blue Fish, Elephant, and Giraffe. Each toy is worked flat using Tunisian crochet and seamed invisibly using the mattress stitch. The toys are perfect for beginners, as they require very little knowledge over how to accomplish a single crochet stitch. The toys are all quite large at around 12” each using worsted weight yarn by Premier Yarns.
