I can always count on a PlanetJune pattern to be well-written and easy to follow, with a predictably cute outcome. I always turn to PlanetJune first because I know that June's patterns will be of the highest quality. I trust June to guide me through new techniques with careful explanation and loads of pictures. Customer support and communication are always top-notch, and June is always quick to help with what is usually 'user error'.

I encourage anyone who is learning to crochet, or trying to improve their crocheting skills, to check out June's informative tutorials, amigurumi book (which is a book I reach for more than any other crochet resource)... and I always whole-heartedly recommend her patterns. In fact, I love PlanetJune patterns so much that I use them exclusively to make finished items for sale in my online shop.

With PlanetJune patterns, even new crocheters like me can make something that actually looks like the picture!
I first learned about PlanetJune when I was attempting to teach myself to crochet (I had never even picked up a hook before). After becoming thoroughly frustrated with other books and authors, I stumbled across June's, "Complete Idiot's Guide to Amigurumi", which taught me more than just making amigurumi, it taught me how to crochet! Since then, I have purchased many patterns from PlanetJune. June's patterns are very detailed and realistic, with in-depth explanations and plenty of pictures, which is invaluable to both the new and experienced crocheter. With PlanetJune patterns, even new crocheters like me can make something that actually looks like the picture! (Which is not always the case with other designers' patterns, trust me).

June also provides excellent customer service and stands behind every pattern and product she sells. I would highly recommend PlanetJune to anyone, whether they are experienced crocheters, or just starting out. In short, PlanetJune is amazing!

PlanetJune is solidly built on quality, unique designs, value and excellent customer service.
June designs patterns that are cute, but far more realistic than most amigurumi, which often lean towards the cartoonish. She puts a great deal of research and effort into the subtleties of shape and colouring in all of her animal and floral designs. Even her many free and donation-based patterns exhibit a high level of detail and precision, not found in many free patterns.

In addition to thorough design, June's instructions are well thought-out and clearly written, with lots of quality photography. For those who get stumped by a complex design, or one of her pioneering techniques, June offers many excellent online tutorials and videos. For more personalized assistance, the PlanetJune Ravelry group offers quick and friendly responses to any related question and, in exceptional cases, June is even generous with her own time, offering email assistance to her customers.

PlanetJune is solidly built on quality, unique designs, value and excellent customer service.

I am addicted to PlanetJune patterns! I have almost all of them and have crocheted all but 18 out of 160 patterns! I love the plants and dinosaurs most. June's patterns are accurate and without typos. She includes a lot of pictures and diagrams in her patterns.

I highly recommend PlanetJune!

June is well-educated, very talented and technically skilled, very helpful and friendly person. Being able to see PlanetJune grow and seeing what June makes in the back-office and in what top quality it results is a pleasure. June's photos are always pleasing to the eye and illustrate every step in PlanetJune patterns which are easy to follow, printer-friendly, and you can be sure to get the result you wanted.

Apart from that, June offers plenty of free stuff (patterns, tutorials, and support), a great community, and very friendly, family-like contact. This is my PlanetJune experience and I am very glad I have found it. After trying some of June's patterns you will be coming back for more, I am sure :-)

June's patterns are amazing! They are incredibly detailed, with very clear instructions and photo tutorials where necessary. They always come out exactly as shown. June's policies are wonderful for those who wish to make and sell toys.

Her website also includes the best collection of amigurumi tutorial videos on the web. And if you need tools, her stuffing wand and stitch markers are my go-to favorites after nearly ten years of toy making. Come to June first, you won’t regret it!

Oh my gosh, June's patterns are the only amigurumi patterns I will pay for. Her creations are so close to the actual animal it is amazing. So well written and easy to understand, and if for some reason you do not understand June is just an email away and responds super fast and super friendly.

Even if you are new to crochet you can make a really awesome stuffed animal and gain some major confidence.
I have more PlanetJune patterns than I think I can get to in a life time and I DON'T CARE! I'll keep buying just about every one as soon as it comes out. I don't like cartoony patterns for animals and these are some of the most consistently realistic. Also the patterns are fantastic. Even if you are new to crochet you can make a really awesome stuffed animal and gain some major confidence.
