75 BIRDS, BUTTERFLIES & BEAUTIFUL BEASTIES TO KNIT Lesley Stanfield
Crochet and knitting are wonderfully therapeutic pastimes, that can bring a calm creativity to your day - time spent in relative stillness, with the bonus satisfaction of producing delightful gifts. This lovely book shows how to make a collection of gorgeous 'real' creatures. Choose from all sorts of flora and fauna - bluetits, doves, creepy crawlies and honeybees, and lots of garden favourites, including flowers, foliage, fruit and vegetables. After a full gallery, there is plenty of information and tuition on the required crochet and knitting techniques, then each design is given as a complete pattern and/or chart. You'll also find a mixture of fun and fabulous ideas for using the creatures to decorate your clothes and accessories, to give as gifts, or to decorate your gift wrap and greetings cards.
