Edward's Menagerie: Birds : Over 40 Soft Toy Patterns for Crochet Birds
Publication Date: 17 September 2015
Be prepared for forty fine-feathered friends to fly off your hook and put their feet up on your coffee table. Kerry Lord's Edward's Menagerie was a runaway success and now she's back with Birds.
You'll be happy as a lark as your crochet your way through this colourful collection of birds, including a bashful Flamingo, romance-writing Owl and a politically incorrect Pheasant. Read all about these kooky characters, their adorations and aversions, daydreams and delusions, then crochet them for everyone you know friends and family.
Each bird can be crocheted in four different sizes making over 160 different pattern possibilities - so pick your first project and get started! The patterns use basic stitches, are grouped by difficulty and include step-by-step technical guides for beginners, so there's no excuse to chicken out.
These loveable birds are quick to make using a supersoft yarn in a sophisticated colour palette, and will become your best friends as their larger-than-life personalities and easy-to-use techniques get their claws into you.
