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).

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.

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...more

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!
