It took WAY TOO LONG for me to figure out that all of the instructions were written in British crochet terms, but once I finally read the patterns correctly, the instructions were clear and easy to follow. I used embroidery floss and a size B hook and my projects all came out perfectly, adorably small!
Because they're all so small, I was able to work them up pretty quickly, and was able to turn them into some very fun last minute gifts for Mims and some of her friends. Tiny crochet is a big hit with first graders.
And after a got the feel for amigurumi, I was inspired to try a project on my own.
