The good folks over at Meteoor Books sent me a free copy of their newest Zoomigurumi book, Zoomigurumi 6. I’ve reviewed a past copy and was very excited to see what new animals were getting the Zoomigurumi treatment.
Just like the past version I received, the book is a collection of 15 patterns by a variety of designers (15 ones in this book, 12 in the previous). Though they are all by different people, you get the feel of a very cohesive vision throughout the book. I give lots of credit to the publishers for their great effort at this cohesion (I feel like Tim Gunn during Fashion Week).
Each little critter is presented with step-by-step instructions with plenty of picture tutorials for difficult portions.
All the patterns use basic amigurumi stitches, so lots of single crochet. None of the patterns seem too difficult so that even a novice at amigurumi could make these. They are all well thought out and just plain cute!
I love that each little guy gets his own cartoon version of itself in the material section.
There are so many cute critters I can’t pick just one favorite.

Get ready for the warmer weather with these super comfy crochet flip flops.
You have two options for construction. Either use a strong glue (like E6000) to stiffen the double sole so you can wear them around the house. Or, make one sole and glue that to a pair of old flip flops (with the original straps removed) to wear outside.
Either way, they will be way more comfortable than those hard plastic straps you’re used to.

Need Yarn For Your Flip Flops?
I’ve partnered with Craftsy to offer the Ocean City Flip Flops Crochet Kit. It comes with the pattern and all the yarn you need to make a pair of flip flops. There are 24 different colors to choose from to customize the look.* The pattern discount does not apply to the kit.
Two More Kits Too
I’ve also worked with Craftsy to offer these two new “great for beginners” crochet kits. These patterns are only available with these exclusive kits. Click on the pictures to see more details about these on Craftsy.
Both patterns use a classic rib stitch pattern that works up quickly with super bulky yarn.
Perfect for the absolute beginner who wants to try their hand at reading a pattern.
