This collection features 35 brand delights and it'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. 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, it is possible to make kittens, koalas, bunnies, dogs and even a duck-billed platypus. There are farmyard animals, ocean swimmers, African residents, underground diggers and tree dwellers and more.
