This English publication is exactly the same book translated from Japanese, and the fact that I was able to crochet a cat from the Japanese version tells you just how easy it is to follow Japanese crochet instructions such as are in this book. Why? Because the key crochet instructions are written in chart format. With the remainder of the book translated, the reader has the added bonus of being able to follow suggestions for variations and instructions for sewing accessories like a futon, a pillow, sardine, or maybe squid for crocheted cats.
This book isn't so much about liking cats or not (and I do like them), nor is it about getting 104 pages of instructions to make different kinds of cats, it's about easy-to-follow crochet instructions for the basic crocheted dolls (Japanese word: amigurumi) that look like funky cats pictured on the book cover, and fun artistic photos of crocheted cats doing silly stuff. Think of it as part crochet pattern book and part coffee table book, but in softcover format, as opposed to the expensive and wasteful hard cover books as most Americans think of when they think of coffee table books. Open your mind and loosen-up, this is a fun little book, and use it as a launching point to create your own crocheted animals or dolls as you desire.
Also check out Ami Ami Dogs: Seriously Cute Crochet by Mitsuki Hoshi, another Japanese amigurumi book recently translated into English, but for create super cute mini dogs.
This is apparently the translation of a book that was originally written in Japanese. I had absolutely no difficulties in following the directions and charts in order to make the cats. The patterns are all fairly similar, you just make slight modifications off the original patterns to get a variety of looks.
The cats that I have finished are really adorable. I love that with their long arms and legs, I can pose them (sometimes I hide them in my grandson's room at my house and he gets to go and find his kitty of the day.
The cats are fairly simple to crochet once you get the hang of it. I like using different yarns to vary the size and the look of the finished cat. Very cute and useful book. It is one that I recommend to anyone who likes to make crocheted stuffed animals. These are definitely a little larger than the amigurumi that I am used to making.
The book does offer a few sewing patterns for your cat, but I only crochet. So that's worthless to me. I was hoping for crocheted accessories and such.
