It’s that time of year again, and with these terrific books crocheters can whip out some seasonal dolls and accessories in a weekend! Note that many of these finished pieces are not appropriate to give as toys to children aged 3 or younger due to small/loose parts, but older kids and even adults will love them!
Creepy Cute Crochet features more than 20 unique patterns for totally loveable zombies, ninjas, Vikings, vampires, aliens, robots, and even Death himself. Each easy-to-follow pattern is presented with step-by-step diagrams, hilarious commentary, and full-color photographs of the bloodcurdlingly sweet creatures in their natural environments. Creepy Cute Crochet comes complete with helpful crochet tips and a down-and-dirty course in doll making, with each pattern ranked by difficulty level, so even beginners can share in the fun.
The scary-cute photographs, accessible instructions, and illustrated patterns are sure to be a hit with indie crafters, angsty teens, and hip moms everywhere.
KF on KND Editor’s Note: I have this book and have made several of the dolls myself. The basic body pattern is simple enough for beginners, though some of the fancier details (like on the Ctulthu) involve advanced techniques. If you’re hesitant to work with the very small hook size that’s recommended, just go a size or two larger and upsize your yarn quantities to cover the difference. The dolls will come out larger, but still adorably creepy!
