Crochet pattern book to create animal soft toys. You can mix and match a whole range of animals (head patterns) and costumes (body patterns) to your heart's content. Everything from the mighty elephant to a nimble mouse is encompassed in these patterns, and your child will love playing with your very own costumed creations. They also make for adorable gifts for loved ones, and changing them up is a piece of cake! Just switch up the yarn thickness and hook size to upsize or downsize your plushie, or pull out the accessories and cute yarn colours and let your creativity flow. Soon enough your yarn could become the ballerina cow you've always dreamt of.
Sizes : The size of the animal depends on the size of the crochet hook, the thickness of yarn and how you stuff it; a bigger hook and thicker yarn make a bigger animal. The monkey and bear on the front and the animals on the back are 8.5 inches or 22 cm tall. They are made with Aran or Worsted Weight yarn. The smaller ballerina and bears on the back are 6.5 inches or 17 cm tall and made with DK or Light Worsted yarn. Use Bulky or Chunky yarn to make a large animal of about 11 inches or 28 cm.
Animals included : bear, monkey, elephant, bunny, tiger, cow, dog, piggy, cat and mouse.
Outfits : firefighter, police, nurse, doctor, farmer, cook, sailor, engineer, ballerina and teacher.
This crochet pattern book uses US crochet abbreviations. A basic knowledge of crochet is required to create the animals and outfits.
