cute critter crochet

A couple of days ago in my Link Love post I mentioned that I’d reviewed Cute Critter Crochet by Maki Oomachi over on Crochet. I thought that today I’d share my five favorite charming crochet projects from that book:

1. Kangaroos

The first crochet patterns in the book are a mama kangaroo with a bunch of bananas in her pouch and a crochet baby kangaroo to go with her. Just looking at their adorable little handmade faces I feel like there’s a story that unfolds!

2. Garden Dolls

Craftside actually offers the free crochet pattern online for these crochet Matryoshaka dolls. It’s one of the cutest crochet patterns in the book – and one of the only ones that is not either a crochet animal or an accessory to go with the animal.

3. Mischievous Dachsund

I don’t know how Oomachi was able to design such a totally adorable sneaky face on that little crochet dog but she sure succeeded.

4. Alpaca

I just can’t resist the fuzzy alpaca that is on the cover of the book. It’s a yarn animal of an animal that makes yarn – perfect!

5. Three Little Pigs

As if the little piggies themselves were not cute enough with those ears and noses, OOmachi has added those great tiny hats to them!
