Using simple crochet intarsia and appliqué techniques you can stitch one block for a pillow front, book bag or toy bag, join four for a lap throw, nine for a child’s blanket or sixteen for an adult blanket. Mix and match colors to create fun single animal-themed blankets, or mix them up for quirky multi-animal designs. There are so many variations the only limit is your imagination.
The book features 16 main animal block designs for a Panda, Cat, Dog, Fox, Raccoon, Penguin, Pig, Sheep, Koala, Sloth, Lion, Hippo, Cow, Unicorn, Bunny, and Monkey – plus additional ideas for using different parts of the patterns to create some new animals such as a Bear (made using parts from the Sloth, Bunny and Lion) and a Horse (made from Unicorn, Bunny and Panda). Many of the designs feature 3D elements including ears, hair, flowers, and bows, which give the blankets a lovely tactile quality.
The blocks can be pieced together and left with no border, or instructions are included to add a Granny Square border or a fancier lace shells border – making a huge range of possibilities for different blanket designs. Featuring in-depth advice on all the crochet techniques and making-up techniques, this comprehensive guide is beginner friendly and so much fun.
