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!

If your tastes run to the offbeat and the macabre rather than cute, then crochet taxidermy is perfect for you! Adorn your walls with the (crochet) heads of deer and other cute creatures--without harming any actual creatures.

Vegetarians and animal lovers rejoice! Now you can make your own cruelty-free taxidermy. In all seriousness, this book is super weird, but the animals are very cute. Recommended by Caitlin

Cute book! Definitely gives great ideas.

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