Toft is pleased to present Edward’s Menagerie: Birds. Kerry Lord, owner of Toft Alpaca Shop in England, has designed over forty soft toy patterns for crochet birds. Edward’s Menagerie even includes technical instructions, photo tutorials, and three skill levels of birdsto choose from, making it suitable for beginners and experienced crocheters.

Each bird has a universal pattern - where you can change your hook and yarn to create different sizes for different yarn weights.  The birds require no special equipment, but you may add craft wire to the legs to make the birds stand.  Some patterns are more advanced than the patterns found in Edward's Menagerie.  For the bird lover, this book will keep you stitching until you have made the entire collection!
