Dumpling Cats: Crochet and Collect Them All by Sarah Sloyer
This book contains 25 amigurumi cat patterns and three accessory patterns including a cat bed, food bowls and a crocheted cardboard box. The dumpling cats were inspired by Pokemon characters, thus making this a perfect book for all the Pokemon fans. Crochet them for yourself or give them as gifts. I’m sure the finished items will be appreciated by everyone.
I also enjoyed reading the little character write-ups for each character. Not only do you get to crochet them, but you get to find out who they are. Pretty cool, if you ask me.
Lastly, the book comes with many images showing you how to crochet these adorable cats. The skill levels range from easy to intermediate.
Grumpy Cats Knitting Nightmares
The Knitting patterns in this book are designed by various knitting designers. It contains a number of accessories for humans and cats, plus a few items for around the home including a washcloth, pillow cover, phone and tablet cozies and coffee sleeve. Cat accessories include a hat, a bed, collars and some amigurumi toys including a mouse and a doggie. Human accessories include a hat and scarf, and a pullover pattern for the entire family.
Plus, the book contains a number of charts which you can incorporate into many other projects as well. Among the charts is an alphabet chart that you can use to create short messages on your knit fabrics.
Altogether the book contains over 15 knitting patterns. Many are easy, but you’ll also find them at the intermediate level.
On top of the patterns, I also enjoyed the grumpy cat quotes throughout the book.
