Birds Butterflies & Little Beasts to Knit & Crochet
Expand your knit and crochet repertoire with this delightful menagerie of miniature bugs and beasts.
From creepy crawlies and weird wrigglers to beautiful butterflies and splendid metallic dragonflies. Use them to decorate your clothes and accessories, to give as gifts - or to decorate your gift wrap and greeting 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 ladybirds and perfect honeybees, tropical terrors and garden favorites.
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 and accessories.
