Birds, Butterflies & Little Beasts to Knit & Crochet: 75 projects to make your own mini world by Lesley Stanfield
Expand your knitting and crochet repertoire with this delightful menagerie of miniature bugs and beasts.
There are creepy crawlies and weird wrigglers, beautiful butterflies and splendid metallic-thread dragonflies, as well as the flowers, leaves, shells, pebbles and other objects that form the natural world. Use them to decorate your clothes and accessories, to give as gifts - or to decorate your gift wrap and greeting cards - and to collect as a creative display piece.
Every one of these cute little beasties is thoughtfully displayed in a directory at the front of the book. And each is cross-referenced to a complete pattern and - for the majority of crochet designs - a chart at the back. Information on stuffing, finishing and other techniques is also included.
You'll also find a mixture of fun and fabulous ideas for using the creatures in a range of styles and settings: as seasonal decorations, quirky homewares or elegant accessories.
