I only crochet. But someone gave me this book once thinking I did knit. It is all the same to some people :laughing:


And as you can see I wasn’t very good at it

This is the BEST amigurumi book I’ve ever come across! If you like ami and just starting the book above is the best. Also, books by Lauren Epsy would be good.
Also, someone else highly recommended Ira Rott. I bought a pattern from her and it looks great.

Ira Rott just released this book.

I’ve heard a lot of good stuff about Knitting Without Tears, though of course it’s on the older side.

The ‘How To Knit’ book by Mollie Makes was quite good! Its got a few knitting patterns mainly for smaller projects like christmas ornaments, phonecases, pillowcases etc, but each pattern has a different technique focus which it talks you through quite nicely at the back of the book (and the instructions have pictures)
