Hi Maly. If you could point me to where it says ‘free’ in relation to the amamani patterns I will gladly correct it as they are all (apart from the Octopus) paid patterns (most of them available only in the book). The patterns use short rows and most people are not familiar with using short rows to shape crochet toys. We have, therefore, included step-by-step photos to help them with this, as well as numerous references. If you have feedback as to how these instructions can be bettered, please feel free to contact me through the ‘contact me’ tab at the top of this website and I will pass your suggestions on to Annie’s.
