Crochet farm-fuls of barnyard animals – too cute! (giveaway)

Megan Kreiner had a farm, E-I-E-I-O!

Megan’s also had a zoo – Crochet a Zoo – and an ocean – Bathtime Buddies – in which to play with crochet. In her third book, Crochet a Farm, sweet barnyard animals take center stage.

Megans-daughter-EmilyFun on the farm is guaranteed: crochet cute chickens, cows, horses, pigs—even a tiny barnyard mouse. Never crocheted before? No matter. Beginners can watch one of these animals come to life in a few hours or less. Yeehaw!

Small projects are fast to finish, economical to make, portable, and most importantly, adorable. Finished animals are just the right size for little hands—and a fun theme for curious minds. (Left: that’s Megan’s daughter, Emily, with one of the piglets featured in the book.)

Today we’re thrilled to have Megan (who by day is an animator at DreamWorks Animation) as a guest writer. Please introduce us to more of your charming farm fare, Megan!

Megan-KreinerBreak out your overalls and get ready to have some fun down on the farm! This third book rounds out my series of crochet animal friends and features loveable farm characters to make and share.

Just like my books Crochet a Zoo and Bathtime Buddies, Crochet a Farm features animals designed with simplicity in mind. Each project starts out with simple shapes that crochet up quickly, perfect for the crafter with only a few moments to spare throughout the day.

Assembly is made easy with detailed step-by-step illustrations for each project, along with finishing touches such as spots, horns, fluffy wool textures, and simple embroidery stitches for plenty of customization opportunities.

You can even customize the cows . . .

What I’ve found to be the most fun about creating farm animals is that you can match up your yarn fibers with your projects! So go ahead and make wooly sheep, angora rabbits, and alpaca alpacas for an extra touch of whimsy.

Anybunny would love caring for these little cuties.

Crochet a Farm includes patterns for a bountiful farm harvest as well (including pails of milk, ears of corn, and plump orange pumpkins with curly vines). And when you purchase the book you’ll get access to a bonus project—host a hoedown with your very own family of farmers!

All projects can be made baby safe by using French knots for eyes. You can even insert rattles or bells into the toys before closing up the seams to make them extra appealing for little ones.

I had a fantastic time putting Crochet a Farm together and I hope you’ll enjoy creating a farm family of your own.
