Virka Amigurumi

By Mia Bengtsson, published in 2009
Available from Panduro

There has been talk about translating this book to English, but as far as I know it's still only available in Swedish. You can find more info on the book HERE on Mia Bengtsson's blog. I ordered my copy directly from her, so she signed it for me! :)

The book being in Swedish is not a problem for me, but it should be understandable for other foreigners as well, even though there are no charts. It's not a big book, but it is full of cute and pretty amigurumis. You start out with an easy pattern and progress to a few difficult ones at the end of the book, which is great if you are a beginner at amigurumi. The projects also vary in size, from a small keychain mascot to a large plushie-style bunny.

My favorite pattern is the turtle:

  2. I also would like to know. I have been looking for this book for a while! If you would please let me know, I would be really appreciative!! Thanks!

  3. Hi! Sorry it has taken me ages to reply to your comments! I don't want to put the author's e-mail address on my blog, but I have now updated the post with links to her blog, so you should be able to find the order information and mail address there :) Hope this helps!
