Children adore their stuffed friends, and what could be better than crocheting that new toy for a cherished child? Featuring two animals from each continent, the 22 fantastic patterns include mammals, reptiles, aquatic life, and even aliens. Use your imagination and create a cuddly cutie in their favorite color. First, follow the initial helpful hints to ensure the perfect finish before moving on the detailed step-by-step instructions; each pattern includes clever tips to help you select the ideal fiber to crochet your treasured gift. --Love of Crochet Magazine
Stacey Trock, author of the popular Cuddly Crochet book, presents a terrific new collection of cuddly stuffed animals from around the world, all made with earth-friendly yarns. Discover fun facts about the yarns and regions while creating a moose, panda, penguin, alpaca, snake, fish and a few surprises. You can learn the basics of crochet, as well as stuffed animal assembly, all while turning fibers such as soy, bamboo, organic cotton and undyed wool into child-friendly toys. --Crochet 1-2-3 Magazine
Crocheted Softies is Stacey Trock's latest book. She has designed 18 adorable animals from around and out of this world. Cuddly Crochet was her last book that covered 10 stuffed animals and baby items that matched.
The book opens with "Give a crocheter a pattern and she'll make an exact copy of the sample in the pattern. But teach a crocheter how to use a pattern and there is no stopping her!" So true.
Stacey will show you how to work the stitches through step by step photographs. You will also learn about fibers and yarn substitution. The fibers used in the stuffed animals are "slightly outside the box". They include yarns that are organic, undyed, banana silk and from yarn companies that give back to communities that are in need.
The results of this book are bright, fun loving stuffed animals. You will create your own menagerie from start to finish with Stacy's help. Which one will you crochet first? --Paula Moliver for the Hartford Knitting Examiner
