Once again, I check out a really cool book about crochet with having no knowledge of how to make any of the cool things in the book! But this year I think I am going to try to teach myself because there are so many cool things that I want to try and make out there!
There are 17 creepy, crawly creatures in this book – things that go bump in the night! The book shows you all the stitches and techniques for all of the creatures. My favorites were the mummy, swamp thing and booboo voodoo! There is even an itsy bitsy spider included, but I think I’ll pass on trying to make him! This book has a lot of items that would be great for Halloween!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
They’re creepy but they’re cute and cuddly, too! Inspired by classic literature, film, and folklore, these 17 crochet monsters will delight everyone with a taste for old-fashioned thrillers and modern tales of horror. Detailed instructions include assembly diagrams for ease of construction along with full-color photos. The patterns are suitable for beginners, but advanced crocheters will find them irresistible as well.
These fetching fiends include Boo Boo the Voodoo Doll; Jack, the Headless Horseman, and his horse, Nightmare; Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; Carl of the Dead and Daisy, his Zombie Dog; and other sinister characters. In addition to their value as handmade keepsake treasures, these characters also make great gifts for fans of horror and science fiction.
