I am so excited to finally be able to share our big news – I wrote a book! …And it’s now available for pre-order on Amazon! It took over a year to complete this work, but I am extremely happy with the final result and I hope you will enjoy these patterns as well as the beautifully styled photography of modern interior designs.
This book is full of animal-inspired patterns (21 to be exact!) – Elephants, Monkeys, Dinosaurs, Cats, Crabs, Giraffes, and Pandas! Each animal theme includes a rug, an adorable matching pillow and a small coordinating accessory that will bring any home to life. With accessories ranging from security blankets to stool covers, bed book tidies, placemats, and toy bags. At least 14 patterns are brand new and are exclusive to the book, you will not find them on our website.
If you wonder about our popular elephant theme, these patterns are new as well! The elephant rug is slightly smaller than in my original pattern (52″ across) and the ears are less complex, you can make this rug in no time. The ears in the elephant pillow are also very simple, it’s mainly a combination of double crochet and popcorn stitches, which will help you achieve a beautiful texture using simple pattern repeats. Here is my little sneak peek of these new elephant designs.
The patterns in the book include row-by-row instructions, loads of step-by-step images, and crochet diagrams, which I hope will help you work through every step smoothly. If you are new to crochet and need help while you are working on these projects, you can always ask questions in our friendly crochet community on Facebook.
An adorable penguin placemat is my FREE bonus pattern for everyone who pre-orders “Crochet Animal Rugs” book. You can download it through SEWANDSO, just remember to save your Amazon order number. Once you’ve created your placemat, please tag me on Instagram using #CrochetAnimalRugs and #IraRott so I could check it out 🙂
