Louise Tyler has selected some of her favourite fairytales and recreated them as charming miniature crochet figures. From Snow White to Sleeping Beauty, and Red Riding Hood to Hansel and Gretel, all the best-known and loved tales are here. Not only can you make the key characters, but also scenes to go with them. Where would Jack be without his beanstalk? Or Cinderella without her pumpkin carriage or white mice footmen? Discover, too, everything that you’ll find in an enchanted forest – snow-capped fir trees, toadstool houses, a fairy ring and even a scary dragon! Some of the patterns can also be adapted for practical use: find out how to transform Rapunzel’s tower into a needle case, or a fairy ring into a pin cushion. As well as the crochet patterns, you’ll find out how to put pieces together and add extra details using applique and decorative stitches – and all you need to know is covered in a helpful techniques section. Plus, the small scale of these delightful pieces makes them quick to complete and perfect for using up scraps of yarn, fabric and trimmings.
