The beginning of a menagerie

June 8, 2017 § 7 Comments


All winter I have been having fun making these cute crocheted animals. I’ve made a few more that aren’t pictured here. They are from the book Edward’s Menagerie by Kerry Lord of Toft Yarn. There are other books as well: a bird book, a monster book, and in the fall there will be a doll book.  So fun!

I have been using Plymouth Encore worsted weight yarn (and leftover wool quilt batting torn up for stuffing) so that they can be washed. With the worsted weight yarn they end up being about 13″ tall, but the book gives approximate measurements for other weights of yarn so you can choose the size. On the Toft Instagram feed, they have been making a giant sized giraffe with many strands of yarn held together! (scroll through to find the many pics of the giraffe parts)

These are all intended to be gifts. Someday, it would be fun to make a zoo for myself. Why I need a zoo of animals… I have no idea.
