75 Birds, Butterflies & Beautiful Beasties to Knit & Crochet Summary

75 Birds, Butterflies & Beautiful Beasties to Knit & Crochet: With Full Instructions, Patterns and Charts by Lesley Stanfield

Expand your knit and crochet repertoire with this delightful menagerie of miniature bugs and beasts: from creepy crawlers and weird wrigglers to beautiful butterflies and splendid metallic butterflies.

Use them to decorate your clothes and accessories, to give as gifts - or to decorate your gift wrap and greetings cards - and to collect as a creative display piece. These entrancing little beasts are thoughtfully displayed in a directory at the front of the book. Choose from winged insects and flying fancies, hanging horrors, cute ladybugs and perfect honeybees, tropical terrors and backyard favourites.

Each critter is cross-referenced to a complete pattern and/or chart at the back of the book, with information on stuffing, finishing and yarn requirements: plus helpful hints on creating iridescence and translucent wings. You'll also find a mixture of fun and fabulous ideas for using the creatures in a range of styles and settings: children's designs, quirky homewares, and elegant fashion accessories.

What better way to surround yourself with nature than to bring it indoors in knitted form? This book is a glorious collection, including all things bright and beautiful from hedgerow flowers to mushrooms, snowflakes to starfish, pebbles to seaweed, dragonflies to doves, leaves to ladybirds, and vegetables to caterpillars, not forgetting even the humble slug! There are notes and tips to help get you started and project ideas at the back of the book. It's a pure delight!
