26 Tiny Creatures to Crochet
Delight your friends and family with these wonderfully cute tiny crocheted animals! Great for using up small amounts of yarn in your stash, there are 26 projects to choose from – and all you need is a crochet hook and some yarn. Make a pet such as a dog, cat or rabbit; go for a farmyard animal such as a pig, cow or horse; or explore the wild side and make a tiger, lion, elephant or monkey.
Quick and easy to make, there is a short techniques section to set you on your way, then you can start making the whole set. These mini amigurumi makes are perfect to hang on key rings, baby buggies, watches or as bag charms. Which one will you make first?
Most of the animals are crocheted using 4-ply (fingering) yarn with a 2.5mm (UK 12-13 / US 1-2) crochet hook. In addition, soft polyester toy filling, a tapestry needle with a blunt tip, and 5mm black safety eyes are also needed.
Each animal is approximately 6cm in height when completed.
