wizardofozcrochetstoriesThis is a lovely book of crochet patterns for a variety of characters from L. Frank Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz”. The figures included are: Dorothy, Toto, Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, a Munchkin, Good Witch of the North, Wicked Witch of the East (House and Shoes), Yellow Brick Road, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Cowardly Lion, Poppy, Emerald City Spectacles, the Wizard of Oz, Wicked Witch of the West, Golden Cap, Winged Monkey, Water Bucket, and Glinda.

In addition to the patterns, there is a very short version of the story included with some cute photos of the crochet characters.

The crochet instructions are written and are in US format. There are some short instructions with respect to stitches but do not include any photographs and drawings depicting stitches. The type of yarn used for the figures is provided but you can use any yarn you wish. It will potentially make a difference in the size of your finished character. I noticed that the designer used a wide range of yarn brands rather than focusing on just one. I generally choose a brand for a project in amigurumi as the size of the characters and their accessories will stay consistent.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
