Kerry Lord, founder of TOFT, Luxury Yarn and Alpaca Shop, has a brand new pattern book out. Her latest title in the Edward’s Menagerie series features 40 soft toy crochet patterns for different bird species, and makes an ideal gift for crafters of all abilities.
Folksy is lucky to have 5 copies of this book to giveaway to our blog readers! Just complete the form at the end of this post to be in with a chance of winning – and if you share the post on social media we’ll give you an extra entry to the competition to double your chances of winning!
Edward is my son, so there’s a strong personal element to the book. Each craft project has a story and a name, and when you work through the book, it’s about more than just completing a crochet project; it’s about crafting your own world.
Craft is the ideal digital detox in our techno-obsessed world, and these patterns can be attempted by time poor beginners and time-plenty experts alike.
A whole world of birds
Each bird has its own kooky name and personal backstory written by Kerry. Once you’ve read about their likes, dislikes, daydreams and delusions, you can get a sense of their personalities; then you can crochet a bird for each of your family and friends.
The birds can be crocheted in four different sizes, making over 160 different pattern possibilities. The patterns have been created using basic stitches and step by step tutorials, so even beginners will be able to enjoy making these fun birds.
Published by David & Charles, this flighty craft book is now available to buy direct from independent stockists, priced £15.99. If you buy Edward’s Menagerie: Birds direct from TOFT you will also receive ten exclusive extra .pdf patterns: http://www.thetoftalpacashop.co.uk.
