Crochet Betty, an Amigurumi-style doll, with patterns for her fifties outfits ranging from shopping to movie-going. There’s a detailed explanation of how to make the basic Betty doll, and also her cute cat Bert.

Each section has patterns for a selection of stylish removable garments and accessories on a fifties theme, with a few added extras for Bert too.

Come with Betty as she channels her inner Audrey Hepburn at the movies, or takes off on holiday in the glamorous footsteps of Grace Kelly.

A vibrant, enjoyable little craft book.

The book has easy to follow instructions to create a range of toys/toy accessories.

It also covers basic stitches and techniques so users don't need to be advanced in their crochet skills.

These patterns look amazing. As an amigurumi artist of 10 years, I love patterns with more advanced shapes and tiny details. I'm particularly impressed with the shaping of each doll's body. I would love to create my own Betty some day!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I was blown away by how much detail and care has gone into creating the book, not only by the quality of the images but by the simple but well put together instructions to create each project within the book. Being new to Crocheting I found a couple of projects to give a go. Will definitely be looking out for more craft books by Cara.

About Cara Medus

Cara Medus has made and drawn things for as long as she can remember, but has been seriously crocheting for about 10 years. She became technical editor on 'Simply Crochet' magazine when it launched in 2013, and loved the geeky side of crochet; patterns, charts, numbers, you name it!


Cara now freelances for 'Simply Crochet' and as a crochet designer, and develops training material for crochet designers and tech editors. She often designs garments, but has enjoyed a recent return to amigurumi, as she is more able to match this with her love of illustration. It’s been a joy for Cara to discover Betty and Bert for this book //or book title// and launch them on some new adventures!


Cara lives in Bristol with her husband and sons where she does a bit of singing, yoga and coffee-drinking on the side.
