Easy to follow directions - which include photographs for some of the trickier stages - for an adorable set of onigiri dolls.
I had contacted the shop owner to see if the pattern would be appropriate for an intermediate crocheter (There was no info regarding the skills required to follow the pattern on the page description at the time) and never heard back from her (hence 4 stars rather than 5). After a few weeks I took a chance and ordered the pattern anyway, and it is appropriate for even a strong beginner, I would say.
