Creature Crochet

I’m happy to let you all know that Kristen Rask (she who owns Schmancy and curates the annual Plush You! show) has a new book (it’s a kit too) coming out in mid-September called Creature Crochet. To celebrate she is giving away a copy to one lucky reader. I got a look at the copy she brought to the summer UCU but, sadly, wasn’t able to rip it own and play with the yarn inside.

To enter simply leave a comment with this post. If you want you can tell us the creature-centric crochet project you’ve ever taken on, or if you’ve never crocheted in your life. The Fine Print applies. I’ll be closing comments and letting the random number generator choose a winner around 10 am on Wednesday, Sept. 2nd, PST, so you’ve got a week to enter, good luck!

    I love the way these animals look. I only have experience crocheting and knitting scarves and hats. I really want to learn how to make little critters!

    My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was about 8 and her arthritis wouldn’t let her do it anymore. this is a nice reminder of times passed.

    Now I have friends whose kids would love these little creatures. What a great idea!!! Even if I don’t win, I’ma have to buy this now. Thanks for posting this!

    I learned to crochet as a child and picked it up again a few years ago… these little creatures would be wonderful to work on while sitting in lectures or waiting for my boys to finish their karate class!

    Fun! These look like something I would LOVE to make!

    I made a knitted stuffed tiger once. It looked deformed. Perhaps a crocheted creature would be nicer?

    I have never crocheted in my life but I have always wanted to learn. My mom and grandmother both know how to and I would love to learn to carry this tradition on to my kiddos.
