15 Amigurimi Patterns For Book Nerds

Amigurimi are small, crochet or knit toys, usually made to resemble animals or inanimate objects, usually with human features, like faces. It’s a Japanese art form, and it’s about the most fun I can ever imagine having with yarn. And they are just so darn cute!

As I started collecting patterns on Pinterest, I came across quite a few that I thought would be of interest to my fellow book fiends and yarn enthusiasts, and I’ve pulled them together here for you to gawk at. Take a look:
