About Simply Adorable Crochet

Simply Adorable Crochet is a book of patterns for small objects including animals, food and flowers. Some are straightforward crochet and others are stuffed amigurumi. They’re all super cute.

The patterns are divided into 5 different categories of cuteness:

  • Baby Animals. Who can resist? There are kittens and lambs and other adorable baby critters.
  • Into the Woods. A variety of animals and nature including crochet acorns and birds.
  • Pretty Posies and Plants. The nature section where you get lots of crochet flower patterns along with a few other goodies.
  • The Sweetest Things. Cute food stuff including crochet macarons and cupcakes.
  • Winter Holidays. The kind of stuff you want to make for Christmas to decorate your tree or add onto gift wrapping.

The book has detailed written instructions with accompanying photographs and also includes diagrams for those who work best with symbol charts so it’s an easy book for anyone to follow. There are also basic instructions for the crochet stitches, stuffing techniques, etc.

My Favorite Crochet Projects

There are a lot of cute projects in this book. I don’t really make a lot of amigurumi myself so I tend to be drawn to the ones that aren’t stuffed including:
