Want to make a stuffed animal for someone special? You’ll find the perfect fuzzy friend in this collection called Edward’s Menagerie by Kerry Lord. There are forty different soft and snuggly crocheted animal patterns in this charming collection so you’re sure to find something perfect.
While these patterns use UK terminology, there is a full explanation of US terminology in the Techniques section of the book. The book is also divided into three handy sections. First is patters that require only one color and basic stitches. The Second Section requires basic color changing – nothing fancy about that. The Third Section requires more color changes and use of the Loop Stitch. If you have not done the Loop Stitch before, you’ll need to practice a bit. But, it’s certainly nothing that requires special talent.
These are the snuggliest critters I’ve seen! I have often been hesitant to attempt some stuffed animal patterns, but the Techniques Section in this book is thorough, providing great pictures and explanations of how to complete each segment of the animals and join them to recreate these cuddly guys.
What does the fox say? The fox says that if you want to crochet some fantastic stuffed animals for those special snuggly lovers in your life, you’ll want to get your own copy of this book!
