I met Narumi (of Mister Funky) in person at Bazaar Bizarre in San Francisco. She is a sweet person and her creations are oh-so-cute. So when I saw her new book Mr. Funky's Super Crochet Wonderful on the shelves while browsing through my local book store, I couldn't help but pick up a copy. I don't know how to crochet yet but the projects are so darn cute that they make me want to learn. I have been told (by a friend who crochets) that the drawings of the patterns are very helpful! I think my all ...more

I've avoided knitting or crocheting softies, for some reason, but this changed my mind. I picked up the book Friday, and last night I finished the beret for "Sebastian le Hamster" (on the cover, left). He still needs a face, but he's still adorable without being too cutesy. I want to do the bunny in a dress next (cover, center). I'm just a little concerned about how to attach plastic eyes so babies won't bite them off and choke. Maybe these will have to be gifts for older kids.

It seems like almost all of the Japanese-inspired crochet books out there are only for amigurumi. I like that this book includes patterns that aren't amigurumi. I love all the super cute designs. I can't really see myself making some of them, but the instructions are fairly easy to read and I've already completed one project from the book.

A lot of people are really crazy about Mr. Funky and his crocheted friends, but I can't really see the appeal, myself. I DO love amigurumi but this type isn't my style. The patterns are well-written, though, if you like these animals and accessories.

My favorite thing in the book was the cool scarf flower that had a small strap on its back to slip your scarf tails through. Neat idea!

Really great designs!
Love the diagrams and directions.

Making Sebastian le Hamster.
Love the subtle humor of Narumi's designs:

Cute book with instructions for crocheting soft toys (amigurumi in Japanese). A bit overly precious and the patterns are nothing that you cannot find online. I'd recommend Amigurumi!: Super Happy Crochet Cute by Elisabeth Doherty over this book.

Alright, I've tried this one enough times, and it just hasn't clicked for me. The title is amazing, but the creations just aren't enough of my style. Still cute, but not as cute as I had hoped.

The amigurumi animals are incredibly cute. The "super-cool accessories" are not. Ms. Narumi Ogawa, chuck the latter and give me more patterns for the animals!

This book has a nice assortment of projects and includes both written patters as well as charts. In addition to amigurumi there's scarves, hats, mittens, bags and accessories.
