Overview

Join author Brenda Anderson in her fascination with scary-cute creatures to crochet. In this collection Brenda presents 23 accessories and toys, featuring furry monsters, carnivorous plants, killer robots, and menacing tiki figures. While there are some literal monsters in the bunch--toys and amigurumi--a majority of projects are wearable accessories and garments.

Some projects, such as a robot-themed intarsia blanky, are aimed specifically at children, while many others are for adults and teens who want to have a little fun.

Brenda shows how to tackle all the sewing and appliqué techniques required in her patterns, including how to install zippers, as well as subtle tricks for achieving personality in your critters with a section on "The Principles of Cuteness." Beastly Crochet is a book that is as fun to read as it is to crochet from!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book if full of really awesome designs like the Sugar Skull Shoulder Bag and the Tiki Head Bolster. In addition to bags and home items, there are wearables like hats and little crochet monsters. The guys on the cover are particularly popular and a great first felting project. They are also great little organizers as they are hollow! Such a neat idea. There is also a great section on how to get your creatures/projects to look how you want." --Marly Bird Yarn Thing podcast
