Michele has been an avid knit and crochet designer for Annie's since the 1980s. As she says, "There is nothing I'd rather do!" Michele's grandmother taught her and her sister to knit when Michele was just 5 or 6 years old. While Michele loved knitting right away, she didn't know much more than the knit stitch until she was 19. Her motivation for learning more about knitting came when another girl gave her boyfriend, Dick, a pair of handknit mittens. She knit Dick a new pair so he'd have to throw out the other pair. Her hard work must have paid off, as she and Dick have been happily married for many years and have three grown children and six grandchildren.

In her early 20s, Michele taught herself how to crochet, and now she equally loves both crafts. She has designed 100s of patterns and has been published countless times by Annie's, Better Homes and Gardens, Coats & Clark, Universal Yarn and Herrschners, among others.

I LOVED this class! This was my first online class experience, and it far exceeded my expectations. It was such fun! I made all four animals, and they all came out looking just like the photos -- they are super cute. My favorites are Li'l Piggy and Daisy Duck. I highly recommend this class if you're at all interested in amigurumi. The camera angles were great, and everything instructor Michele said was very helpful. I asked Michele a couple of questions, and she was very gracious. I learned new techniques and tips that I can put to good use on other projects. Thank you, Annie's, for providing a terrific class from a very talented designer with projects that were fun to make. I can't wait to give my finished animals as gifts.

I finished the Fox! My grand-daughter's favorite song is "What does the fox say". The fox is adorable! I'm going to start on the pig next. Excellent pattern!
I didn't really need the video as I'm experienced and the pattern was good, but I will go back and look at the videos later.

It is fun to watch and make these animals, overall the instructions are good. But some parts are hard to watch and understand clearly. Especially for the beak, wings, duck lower feet. Illustration can be improved by showing more clearly the stitches. Most of the time camera is on the hand or on in general view rather than stitches. There is lot of room to improve the illustrations and the notes.

A wonderful tutorial, I am very new to crocheting, only made granny squares before. I love these animals and so wanted to learn to make them. Ive done it, lil pig made!! Very pleased with her, not perfect but I like her. The only bit I struggled with was the arms for some reason I couldn't get them right, took longer to do than the rest put together. Got there in the end.
