The Yarn Animal Book Series: Woolly Yarn Animals (Paperback)
The Yarn Animal Book Series is based on the original hardbound book published in 1976 by Simon and Schuster. The author has taken each chapter and created a separate booklet dedicated to the particular yarn technique addressed in that chapter including all of the pertinent information and patterns for the delightful critters designed for that yarn technique. The author's goal is to provide more economical access to specific techniques and projects for the yarn crafter. What follows is the description from the jacket of the original book.
