Mini Amigurumi presents you with all the basic crochet techniques you will need to make these little delights, along with step-by-step illustrations of the process. But, if you're unsure about working on such a small scale - no problem. It's easy to practice with larger hooks and thicker yarn - the patterns are exactly the same.
