Amigurumi Crocheted Creatures: Japan

12 of 13

The Japanese affinity for all things cute meets DIY craftiness in amigurumi,
small hand-crocheted creatures with Hello Kitty–style appeal. It’s easy to
imagine children playing with many figures, especially those knitted in the
shapes of round-eyed pandas, froggies, lop-eared bunnies, and goofy wee aliens.
It might require more creativity, though, for kids to come up with games
incorporating some of the odder amigurumi patterns out there: say, a set of
knitted eyeballs, a “family” of pill capsules, or a platter of crocheted sushi
rolls.
