Crochet Little Heroes is a paperback book that, using the Japanese art of amigurumi, you can learn how to crochet 20 cute heroes and heroines! Not only will they become beloved keepsakes, they will also celebrate the lives of icons such as Jane Austen, Frida Khalo, Maya Angelou, Pablo Picasso, Muhammad Ali, and Bruce Lee.
