Book Review: Creepy Crawly Crochet

Creepy CUTE Crochet (4 stars)

Though I've attempted crochet in the past, I didn't have the coordination to keep it up as a hobby. Never the less, I adore amigurumi books, particularly those with scifi, fantasy, horror, and pop culture themes. This one has some really original and comical designs that I adored. Boo Boo the Voodoo Doll is my favorite but Poe the Raven and Bun Bun the Bunny are fun, unexpected critters too.

From a technical standpoint I can't say whether the instructions would be easy to follow but I'm guessing most of these (based on appearance and length of instruction) are not going to be easy for beginners. That said, it does have a section of crochet basics so if you're totally new you may find it an inspiring place to build your skills.

They're creepy but they're cute and cuddly, too! Inspired by classic literature, film, and folklore, these 17 crochet monsters will delight everyone with a taste for old-fashioned thrillers and modern tales of horror. Detailed instructions include assembly diagrams for ease of construction along with full-color photos. The patterns are suitable for beginners, but advanced crocheters will find them irresistible as well.
These fetching fiends include Boo Boo the Voodoo Doll; Jack, the Headless Horseman, and his horse, Nightmare; Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; Carl of the Dead and Daisy, his Zombie Dog; and other sinister characters.
