I actually ordered the book from ebay, but you can order from Amazon Japan, too.  They tend to be a bit expensive--nearly $30 from ebay.  Amazon.jp charges only cover price, but shipping is costly.  I looked and looked for free patterns on the web and couldn't find any, so I decided to just cough up the cash.

Amigurumi are basically made from single crochet in the round.  I'm hoping that once I've completed some patterns from the books I will be confident enough to strike out on my own, but for now I'm having fun following the patterns.

Check out this thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24756.0

It has lots of discussion on where/how to buy books and how to interpret the patterns.  Hope that helps!

Is there any way you could write an english tutorial for this?

I really want to make one, but I don't want to have to order the book.

If it were a design I had made up, I'd be happy to post a tutorial.  But, the design belongs to the person who wrote the book and it would be violating copyright to post it. 

Sorry!  (If you look at the thread I posted above, I think there is a like to a site that does a tutorial for a amigurumi-style bee.  That might get you started.)

My son saw this monkey and had to have it.  Do you know where I can find the pattern for it?  He's a Japanese cartoon fan - at 24 yr. old no less.lolol   Very good job! Smiley

The pattern is from a Japanese book.

Here's a link to the book on Amazon Japan:
http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/4309265723/ref=pd_recs_wl/250-3315123-1753821


It's all in Japanese, so it would be really hard to search some place like ebay for the title.  That link should give you a picture of the cover, though, so you could search ebay for "amigurumi" and compare the results to the Amazon Japan picture. 

Hope that helps!

Your monkey is just the cutest!

I am so tempted to get some Japanese crochet books but so far I have only purchased the sewing/craft books.  I have to follow the illustrations and I still have to wing it sometimes.

You did a great job!
