I don't know whether you are aware or not but this is the 2nd book
in the Edward's Menagerie series.

The 2nd book is even more amazing than the 1st.

it is jam packed with different designs.

  37. TRICIA the Silkie Chicken 
  38. ABRAHAM the Bald Eagle 
  39. KIT the Rooster 
  40. MARGOT the Swan 

I know an amazing 40 patterns.
The other amazing thing is each of them
has patterns for four different sizes.
That means the book is packed full of 160 patterns!

The book is split into 3 sections.
Each of the sections hold a different level
of pattern.
This means you can easily define and find
which patterns are suitable for your
level of crocheting.

There are some standard forms that
are used throughtout the book.
These mean each of the designs
have a similar theme but the individual
parts of the patterns make their own

The stork has to be my favorite!
I am going to make one for my son.
I just can't decide which one to make for my niece.

The other amazing fantastic thing is
if you buy the pdf book from the Toft Shop
you get an extra 10 Patterns

Each of the patterns are clear and easy to understand.
Each part is made separately and then joined.

At the start of each pattern to get an introduction
to the bird.
Each has it's own name, history and personality.
The colours that Toft now stock are beautiful
and make a great addition to the designs.

Now comes the fun part!
