Book Description

This third book from Claire Gelder presents you Bonnie the Highland Cow and Isla her calf, as well as other adorable crocheted companions.

With soft, chunky yarn and long, floppy limbs, you'll have no choice but to pick them up, or snuggle on the sofa with them. Oversized, and full of life, these toys are about 70cm tall and the babies measure about 35cm.

The projects are aimed at beginners to improvers, and are suitable for someone who has mastered the basics of crochet.

Open up the book to be introduced to 20 loveable animals such as garden birds, deer and doe, badger and fox, cat and dog, mouse and hedgehog, owls and lovebirds, as well as a frog and baby and a goat and his kid. Which one will steal your heart first?
