I found this crochet pattern book last year. It called for using crochet thread and I found it difficult to handle, due to my arthritis. So, I switched to sports weight and worsted weight yarn and matched the needle to get a nice tight stitch. I love the size and the patterns work up so cute! My grand-kids have just loved them. I have made several of the monkey, elephant. The giraffe is loved by everyone who sees it - even the UPS clerk when I shipped a batch off to my daughter in Washington - but my grandson is the only one who has one, so far.
The next batch of animals came from this Leisure Arts Booklet. I love them! The lion and the hippo are my favorites!!
I LOVE this little guy!!
My newest critter is this little guy. I found the pattern on-line and have made four of them so far. Such a cute pattern and I'm grateful to Demostrative for sharing it! My little girls loved him....their moms too.
