Book: Crochet Taxidermy
Author, Taylor Hart is a full-time crocheter specialising in amigurumi and crocheted taxidermy. She blogs at nothingbutapigeon.com, has appeared on Knitting Daily TV, and has been profiled in Martha Stewart's American Made series. 'Crochet Taxidermy' puts a new twist on amigurumi, the popular Japanese method of creating considerably cute stuffed animals with oversized heads. In this delightful collection, heads of animals from farm and forest, sea and safari come to life with irresistible details like the drowsy eye (for the shy deer and sleepy octopus) and fuzzy yarn (for the skittery skunk's stripe and lazy lion's mane). Step-by-step instructions and adorable photos guide you through these 30 easy crochet patterns. Most require just one skein of yarn, so they're affordable and quick to crochet.
