New Book: Birds, Butterflies and Little Beasts
4th June 2021
If you thought knitting and crochet meant woolly jumpers, scarves and beanies, then we’ve got a surprise for you. How about putting your needles and hooks to work at producing a menagerie of garden creatures, fruits, flowers and foliage all in glorious yarn?
Birds, Butterflies & Little Beasts to Knit and Crochet is a new book by Lesley Stanfield. It is packed with cute and whimsical projects to knit and crochet, including a swarm of 3D insects with shimmering wings, more leaves than an autumn walk in the park and an entire ocean rock pool complete with shells, starfish and sea anemones.
Each project takes no time at all to complete and would make perfect little gifts, embellishments on a card or parcel, or a part of a larger, knitted installation.
You’ll be utterly charmed by the treasures you’ll find in this book.
The best thing of all is that it is perfect as a stash buster, as so many of these little patterns only require small amounts of yarn.
So put down the half-finished cardigan, order a copy of this fabulous book and start filling your home with knitted flora and fauna with a cuteness-factor that’s out of this world.
