Raise your hand if crochet is your happy place!
Lula and her amigurumi friends give you a warm welcome, and you’ll see that their sunny street is as big and bright as the whole world.
Meet little Lula, who marvels at everyday wonders with her teddy bear in hand. She’s going round to visit her neighbour Gary, who’s selling organic vegetables from his garden.
Gary’s husband Hadi is conducting a concert tonight, and their bookish daughter Maja is coming to cheer him on. Watch out for Grandma, she’s practicing her skateboarding skills on the curb. Grandpa’s there too, blasting hip-hop music from his portable radio.
And there are many more colorful characters to meet!
Step up your crochet game with the quirky characters included in this book.
All patterns contain detailed instructions and are accompanied by step-by-step pictures and video tutorials of all techniques used, so it’s a breeze for both beginning and advanced crocheters to join in.
Nour Abdallah is a Berlin-based illustrator and designer who loves toys and refuses to grow up. Having her children look at her work and enjoy the visuals is what motivates her most! She met Granny’s Crochet Hook on the Instagram crochet society and they naturally started working together, with Nour dreaming up and drawing all of the characters that Granny’s Crochet Hook turns into dolls.
Dasha & Kate Umbitalieva (Granny’s Crochet Hook) are sisters from St. Petersburg who share an Instagram amigurumi account and a big love for crochet. Instagram is also the place where they first saw Nour’s character Lula and asked her if they could use her drawing as inspiration to design a doll and pattern, and that’s how they got the ball rolling.
