Book Description

8 Aug 2014
Get ready to spend some time with a suave high-flying rhino, a lovesick elephant who knows her way around a kitchen and a seriously chivalrous tiger...

With just two weeks to go before baby Edward's due date, yarn enthusiast Kerry Lord picked up a crochet hook for the first time and a new obsession began. Over the next 12 months the collection of crochet animals expanded week on week until Edward's Menagerie was complete with 40 unique patterns.

These cute animals with larger-than-life personalities are made using simple crochet techniques and the step-by-step instructions enable a complete beginner to get hooking straight away. Each animal also has a universal pattern where you can change your hook and yarn to create four different sizes, making 160 different possibilities.

Be warned that these unlikely characters made using a supersoft yarn in a sumptuous natural colour palette will become your new best friends as you hook your way through the whole menagerie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked 20 Aug 2014
By Alison
Format:Paperback
A fantastic crochet book for both beginners and seasoned crocheters. I was instantly hooked after my first animal and am on my way to hooking the whole menagerie. A must for anyone looking for their next project, or picking up crochet for the first time. With youtube videos to help guide you, and informative pages, this book really touches all bases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely :) 18 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
This just arrived in the post and looks every bit as lovely as I had hoped. The descriptions of each little character (which can be worked in various sizes) make me smile and instructions are simple and clear. Can't wait to get started ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and easy to follow 3 Sep 2014
By Alex
Format:Kindle Edition
Received this as a birthday present and am completely delighted, it's a beautiful book and the animals are gorgeous - right I'm off to make an aardvark...

September 2014 - Just a quick update now I have made two animals from this lovely book. I found the crochet instructions straight forward and easy to follow while the `technical section' provided a useful reminder for my rusty crochet skills. However the section I found most useful was the finishing section. So many books have clear crochet instructions followed by `and assemble'. This book carefully takes you through the stages of assembly, giving precise instructions on where to place the limbs, the importance of stuffing correctly etc. plus the different expressions achieved by changing the eyes and ears. Why don't more books do this? It is vital for achieving a similar end result and I am delighted with mine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aardvarks rule 18 Sep 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really simple idea, with basic shapes altered slightly to give the various animals. I only give it four stars because it's not clear if the pieces are worked in a continuous round or slip stitched at the end of each round. I did continuous and it looked fine. Oh, and everyone loves the aardvark.

This was bought as a present for a 16-year-old girl who was interested in doing crochet work. All that I have seen of it suggests that it is a joy of invention for anyone with eyes to see and the talent to learn.
