'Crochet Taxidermy' puts a new twist on amigurumi, the popular Japanese method of creating considerably cute stuffed animals with oversized heads. In this delightful collection, heads of animals from farm and forest, sea and safari come to life with irresistible details like the drowsy eye (for the shy deer and sleepy octopus) and fuzzy yarn (for the skittery skunk's stripe and lazy lion's mane). Step-by-step instructions and adorable photos guide you through these 30 easy crochet patterns. Most require just one skein of yarn, so they're affordable and quick to crochet!

I love to crochet. I also love animals. I also happen to like strange things. If crochet taxidermy isn't a perfect combination of those three things, I don't know what is. ArapahoeSarahD

While the ideas are brilliant, the instructions are so sparse, you must use your best crochet-brain to complete the pattern.
