Format: Paperback
For all lovers of alternative, non-twee creative crafts, this book is a must! So many books of a similar kind look promising on the cover, but then lack real substance and end up gathering dust, but this book is full of the most amusing creatures to crochet - things that appeal to all ages and genders. I found the technical help relating to different stitches (at the back of the book) to be very clear and helpful too. Nicki Trench has obviously put her heart and her humour into this book. Not only are the creatures adorably scary, but each one has a hilarious little write-up giving it's name and a brief description of its personality or circumstances.

Nicki Trench is fantastic..everything is always so clearlywritten and easy to follow. I've made a pocket ghost already who is awesome and I've got lots of orders in for other stuff from friends. If you enjoy crochet and horror films this is the book for you!!

This book was a gift from my dear sister. Being a novice & only knowing 4 basic stitches,along with no knowledge of abbreviations or in fact how to read any crochet pattern & that includes a granny square. I would repeatedly cast on & off trying to make a granny square myself (thats how novice i was)

I'm proud to say after my first attempt of the pocket Ghost. I've crochet nearly all of the scaries within a year. I found Batty Bat wings the hardest to do, but with the help of other sources I've cracked that tiny problem & Batty Bat does fly.

I've used the patterns and produced other fantasy creatures, as you learn, practise & become more confident along with the helpful stitches guide at the back - For example the horns on the devil i crochet one horn to make a nose for a witch.

This book has traught me how to read & understand patterns while making super scary crochet creatures & given me confidence with many crochet projects.

I have only just learnt to crochet and found the book clearly written and easy to understand
a good book for building up a box of different shapes so that you can make your own.
The patterns although for crochet are clear enough for converting to knitted items and look great either as crochet or knitted

I love books that attack the senses from different angles. My daughter loves looking through the book, seeing the different pictures and little scenes that are set up. I too liked this part, if nothing else it's a great book to look at.

It's also a wonderfully refreshing theme to crochet. Imagine crocheting the headless horseman at your local knitting group!

Once Xmas is over and I stop crocheting 'Amineko' cats I will turn my attention to this book.
