I saw this book at my local library and checked it out because I'm always looking for cute knitting and crochet patterns. While not amigurumi, the patterns here are really cute and will appeal to fans of Japanese culture and anime.

I was a bit disappointed that most of the patterns were scarves. There was one hat, a tissue cozy, and some wrist warmers, but everything else was a scarf, and mostly a version of the same kind of scarf (linked together pieces like the one on the cover).

I did make a

This book is adorable! I would have super loved it in high school and undergrad. Twinkie Chan creates cute crochet scarf, hat, and glove patterns that look like food. Most of them are fairly flat which works well for flat things like buttered toast, grapefruit slices, and candy buttons. However, it looks a little bit strange for sweets like ice cream and cupcakes. Still cute, though! My favorites are the Giant Carrot Scarf and the Baby Radish Lariat Scarf. So adorable! Oh, and I would love to we ...more

Super cute book. Lots of adorable food scarves for you to put together from cupcakes to pizza (my favs were the salad and lettuce scarves).

As a beginner though, a lot of these require a bit of experience with assembly and using multiple colors. A beginner could do it, but it's definitely more work from what the patterns indicate.

However, they're cute and fun so the extra work should be worth it.

I do wish there were a few more non-scarf items. I think there was a hat, gloves, a tissue cover, and

The projects contained in this book are pretty silly and impractical (my own bias, as there is nothing here that I would actually wear). Having said that, cute crochet is in, and Chan has done a good job of creating colourful, whimsical projects. My biggest complaint is that the book is 90% patterns for scarves. While some of the panels could likely be reused for other things, I would like to see more variety. I'm not sure how many of the patterns I will actually use, but this just goes to prove ...more

Good book full of awesome patterns. If you are anywhere under an expert or intermediate crocheter, then this book is great for you. More advanced crocheters tend to be able to make their own patterns. I'm getting there, but this book is great for beginners. My eight year old also loves it, and is learning to read the patters (which are super easy to read), and she plans on making everything in the book. I highly recommend it.

Super fun and cute crochet.

I love this crochet book. It's fun and great for using up your yarn stash. All the patterns are colourful and very original. My daughter loves her cupcake scarf and I'm currently making the toast scarf. Great for people that want crochet that doesn't take itself too seriously and also most pattern are done in parts, a bit like granny squares. So good for travelling with.

This book is filled with wonderfully cute wearable items, mostly scarves, made of crocheted food. Many of them made me giggle, but they are perfect for people with a sense of humour, kids, and even some teenagers. Most of all, foodies would probably get a kick out of these designs.

I worked my way through only one pattern, and it was very, very easy to follow. I really like that the author puts hints at the end of the pattern on how to change the sizes for the best fit. I can't wait to make the

Such fun! I crocheted the "dot's" candy scarf and currently working on the carrot scarf. They will be really cool Christmas gifts. The directions are very clear, the photos fun and I don't know anyone who wouldn't want to wear one of these creations! I'm so glad I decided to do some crafting - it's never too early to start those gifts for the holidays. Fun and easy!
