One glance at the cover of this book and you ll see it s filled with a menagerie of mini creatures, as well as plants, fruits and vegetables. You can knit and crochet them to give as gifts, or to use as embellishments on other woolly projects. There s a handy directory at the start of the book, where you can browse the projects and find out where to locate the patterns themselves. Our favourites are the blue tit, snail, spider (perhaps a little too lifelike for some) and the peacock butterfly. At the back are a few ideas for presenting your projects, such as brightening up an old tweed jacket with some autumn leaves and mushrooms. --Knit Today
