75 Birds, Bees, Butterflies & Bugs to Knit & Crochet

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 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 wined insects and flying fancies, hanging horrors, cute ladybugs and perfect honeybees, tropical terrors, and backyard 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 homes wares, and elegant fashions and accessories.

Dive into a vibrant world of exotic critters and creatures with this marvellous book by Lesley Stanfield.
