Informazioni sull'autore

Crochet a Farm - Megan Kreiner

Introduction

Old McDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O. And on this farm she spun some yarn, E-I-E-I-O. With an angora rabbit here, and a woolly sheep there . . .

You get the idea. McDonald was one very happy farmer!

This book is the third in a cute-crocheted-creations series, which also includes Crochet a Zoo and Bathtime Buddies. With this book, you can create all your favorite animals from the farm, from a few simple roly-poly chickens to a whole herd of cows. For an added layer of fun, you can make wool sheep, angora bunnies, and alpaca alpacas.

I hope the lucky recipients of your farm toys enjoy the care and effort you’ve put into creating these adorable little animals. Happy farming and happy crocheting!

~Megan Kreiner of MK Crochet

Chickens

Don’t worry about these chickens waking you up at the crack of dawn—these roly-poly little birds love to sleep in. Just don’t expect them to deliver a delicious egg breakfast any time soon. You can find instructions to make eggs on page 60.
