Crochet animals.

I'm in love with these sweet  crochet animals... from Edward's Menagerie Book by Kerry Lord.
 


I already  made animals from free patterns, like elephants and owls, but on the other side I like to buy books, is an indirect way to allow artists to
continue creating.
 
What can I say....I'm in love with the book !!!!
 
 
 
It was the picture from the cover of this book that caught my attention, and since I has long wanted to crochet animals, when I found this book, I bought it instantly.
 
Inside this book you will find 40 crochet patterns  and you will need  less than one ball of yarn per animal. In the link that I provide you can look inside the book
and you will find 30 images from the book.
Each animal has a universal pattern, you can change your hook and yarn to create four different sizes, making 160 different possibilities.
 
 
 
Here is my beloved sheep.
 



 The yarn used to make the sheep was Charisme from  Loops & Threads, the colors I used  are; 
 #13 charcoal for the head and I used the color white for the legs and arms.
I made the  loops to decorate the body and head  with Patons, Big Bouclé, summit.
 
 
 
Here is my lovely lion.
 


 
This time I used Red Heart, Soft (worsted) wheat color for the whole body. The  head loops were made with Wool-Ease, Thick & Quick from  Lion Brand Yarns.
 


 
This book is divided into parts according to the degree of difficulty,  from beginners to advanced and the technique is well explained. It has excellent pictures
that  explains how to create each part of the animal and how to join each piece.
There is a chapter that gives us some tips to embroider the eyes, nose and mouth. I
started with the sheep and could not stop me, did the lion and now I'm doing a Koala and you know what? Now I want to  make them all !!!!!
 
 


 
 
I bought the book at Amazon, below you will find the links( is my store, is an affiliate link), through my link, you will be able to see pictures of the different animals that we can create, and you can decide whether  you have interest in the book or not.
Is available also a Kindle version of the book, is a matter of preference, I like to have a book in my hands.


 This is my button with the link: 
 

 

 
 
If you purchase through the links that I provide, I receive a small commission of the sale at not additional cost to you.
I use affiliate links to have a source of income, for me is a way to devote myself to the blog, and thus to have a source of money to buy different products and then share my creations and tutorials with you all.
 
Because  you are what matter most to me, I only choose to promote products that I love, and that I think that will be beneficial,  helpful and valuable to you
and I choose affiliates that fits well within the parameters of my blog.
 
 
Edward's Menagerie, is definitely a book to have on hand, and that I recommend you.
You will crochet  beautiful gifts for the little ones in your lives.
 
I hope I have provided inspiration to you.
Thanks soooo much  for your visit, is really appreciated.

I love these! How did you get the sheep fluffy, is it a stitch or the yarn you used?
