Book Description

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.

Butterflies, moths and caterpillars
Bees, beetles, ladybugs and dragonflies
Small frog and lizard
Crab, seaweed, coral and shells
Mushrooms, toadstools, leaves, wild flowers, berries and nuts
