“Cuddly Amigurumi Toys” – new pattern book

cuddly amigurumi toys book

I feel super happy to write this post and tell you all that my second pattern book called “Cuddly Amigurumi Toys” is published in English and Dutch (“Betoverende Amigurumiknuffels 2”).


The book is available in PDF format, but a hardcover printed version can be purchased on Amazon on these days. The Dutch book can be found here.


This new book contains many brand new designs which you will find nowhere else. The concept was to design only animals and in the best size for a toddler to cuddle. There are a couple of toys designed for my own kids which are their new favourites – like the rat I made for my daughter Linda, the dragon designed for my son Paul and the horse made for my niece Johanna. But there`s a lot more.

In this book you`ll find 15 new irresistible animals. Some of them you may already know, like Dreamy Doris, Teddy Theodor, Puppy Paul, Lars the Dragon and Klaus the Bashful Bunny.

But there is so much more I haven`t shown you, just to keep the secret :) For “Cuddly Amigurumi Toys” I´ve designed 10 brand new toys! For example a cute couple of Candy-colored Mia and Sim the Zebra – 2 different versions of one model.

Fluffy Sheep, Karl Fisherman and the small whimsical fish, Teele the Elephant and Pretty Rita.

Sleepy Owl, Neat Little Nelli the Rat, Sparkle the Reindeer and probably the most complex pattern of the entire book – Starry-eyed Sara.

For me compiling the book is a different kind of a challenge. Yes, it means writing a lot of patterns, which I usually do as well, but also creating the whole and seeing it all coming together. I think that`s the most exciting part for me.

I want to thank Amigurumipatterns for believing in me once again.

I want to thank the photographer and my trusted advisor Annika Metsla. I want to thank the layout designer Päivi Palts without whom the book wouldn`t look the same.

I also want to thank all those crochet ladies who helped testing the English and Dutch patterns. You are all wonderful!

I hope this book brings a lot of crochet joy to you and lots of playing fun for your kids!

    Hi, I bought your book and am in love with all the cute toys! I’d like to make Fluffy sheep, but Drops Air yarn has been discontinued. Could you recommend another yarn please?

      Hello, Shirley! As far as I know Drops Air should still be in stock, but it probably isn`t available in all countries. I myself would try Marnie by Schoeller + Stahl, or Cotton Merino by Katia. But Drops Cloud is also an option, although it`s somewhat thicker.

    I bought your book on Amazon, and so far, I love all the photos! I am currently working on Klaus, and I’m confused on his leg/heel. In rnd 21 and rnd 22: Im confused on how to get back onto the outside of the foot (right side). I hope that makes sense… on rnd 21, do i turn one more time and work on the “wrong side”? then on rnd 22, it says to work on the backside for 3 stitches, 5 in the ends, then 5 on the outside stitches. I’m not sure how to transition from “wrong side” to “right side”

      After working rows 17-21 back and forth, round 22 is worked in the round again. If I understood your question correctly, then yes, you will have to turn after round 21 to be able to work round 22 on the right side of the piece. After that you will keep working in the round and will turn no more.
      If you have any further questions, please don`t hesitate to contact me at lilleliis@gmail.com
