Come and meet 35 brand-new dainty delights in "Super-super Cute Crochet", the must-have book that's packed with patterns to make a whole collection of furry friends. The projects are easy to do - each animal uses just a few basic stitches, so even complete beginners will be making their own menagerie in no time. Author Brigitte Read introduces for the first time her special technique - brush crochet. Simply use a small brush on your finished toy to fluff it up and give an adorable finish that really brings your animal to life. Brigitte also has innovative ideas and details to enhance the patterns, like the egg pouches for the just-hatched terrapins. With five chapters covering a whole range of animals, from everyday pets to the colourful and curious, you can make kittens, koalas, bunnies, dogs and even a duck-billed platypus. There are farmyard animals, ocean swimmers, African residents, underground diggers and tree dwellers - in other words, more than enough to keep any crochet hook busy! With straight forward instructions, imaginative designs, a full techniques section and gorgeous photography, this book is a must-have for anyone who loves cute, cuddly and creative crocheting.
