With this collection of crochet patterns you can choose your favourites from the cutest fungi to a teeny tiny laby bird from the Fairy Woodland chapter through to a miniscule sea serpent or magical wizard from the Myth & Legend chapter. Amigurumi on this scale - some of the ami are as small as a thumbnail while others are no bigger than your thumb - can be used to create a variety of tiny projects. They can become charms, jewellery, keyrings or even dollhouse decorations. All of the projects are made using crochet hooks that range from 0.5mm-0.6mm, 0.7-0.9mm and up to 1.25mm-1.5mm but can be scaled up by using a larger hook and thicker thread for a larger amigurumi. There is advice about the best tools and materials to use in order to get the best results. There are specific instructions for working at such a small scale including the best ways to hold the thread and hook and how to embroider faces and expressions and adding hair, which really brings the amigurumi to life. There is also advice about reducing and increasing stitches, counting stitches when working small and how to change colour mid-row, and specific advice about crocheting in rounds and how to stuff the tiny amigurumi. As well as the written patterns for all the amigurumi, there are charts for any flat pattern sections. And there are also detailed instructions and step-by-step photography and artworks for all the special techniques and stitches such as finishing off and weaving in ends.
