Huggable Crochet Review and Giveaway

Anyone who knows anything about Cute Crochet Chat, knows that we love cute! A lot...So when I was asked to review the adorable book, "Huggable Crochet", how could I resist! The best part about this review is that one lucky reader/commenter will win a copy of this book!
This book is titled, "Huggable Crochet, Cute and Cuddly Animals from Around the World", and is written by Christine Lucas. It is published by Krause Publications/FW Media.








"Huggable Crochet" has some of the cutest crochet stuffed animals that I have seen anywhere AND has several crochet animals that I have never seen patterns for! With a menagerie of adorable animals, I can see why this book was named Huggable Crochet!


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

 The patterns for all the animals are divided into five interesting chapters, with fun names. They include The Pranksters, The Protectors, The Scientists, The Covert Operatives and The Entertainers! All in all, there are 19 crochet patterns for cute animals.


 



 The book describes all these animals as being TRULY huggable, as they measure from between twelve inches to eighteen inches!
The patterns look very easy to follow and include wonderful illustrations that will help you create the animal to look as the designer intended. She also gives finishing tips.
There is a metric conversion chart in the beginning that I actually learned something from!






Christine takes you on a "magical tour of the animal kingdom!" Each chapter has Alternate Color Versions and I love the fact that Christine offers variations; the realistic or traditional colors for the animals AND a nice whimsical color palette for them! Such fun!








Some of my favorites animals include Sly the Snake, Bandit the Raccoon,  Tiger Lily the Snail, and Hannah the Hippo!

You know, I live in Australia and I've never seen a pattern for a kangaroo let alone made one. Looks like there's a good selection of other animals to make as well so I'm sure that book would keep me busy for a while. moriarty58 at gmail dot com is a good address for contacting me.
