Get ready to spend some time with a suave high-flying rhino, a lovesick elephant who knows her way around a kitchen and a seriously chivalrous tiger...

With just two weeks to go before baby Edward's due date, yarn enthusiast Kerry Lord picked up a crochet hook for the first time and a new obsession began. Over the next 12 months the collection of crochet animals expanded week on week until Edward's Menagerie was complete with 40 unique patterns.

These cute animals with larger-than-life personalities are made using simple crochet techniques and the step-by-step instructions enable a complete beginner to get hooking straight away. Each animal also has a universal pattern where you can change your hook and yarn to create four different sizes, making 160 different possibilities.

Be warned that these unlikely characters made using a supersoft yarn in a sumptuous natural colour palette will become your new best friends as you hook your way through the whole menagerie!

i found this book to be whimsical and sweet. i've made several pieces, elephant, alpaca, cat, aardvark. i changed a few things on faces and fur to fit my sense of fun. Excellent toys for little kids

Uses one basic pattern to start all the animals and then provides variations on that patterns to make a specific animal. Written by someone fairly new to the craft and she says at the start that her instructions aren't always written traditionally, but more in a way that seemed to make sense. Has three different sheep (based on actual breeds) :).
