Here you can find TOFT’s how-to video guide for any technical advice to accompany the Edward’s Menagerie crochet animal patterns. The Edward's Menagerie collection of amigurumi crochet patterns by Kerry Lord is designed for beginners and only uses a few simple crochet techniques, starting from ten level one animals and progressing through to fifteen level two and fifteen level three projects. Once you have had a go at crocheting one animal, we guarantee you’ll want to make the whole menagerie.

If you buy your copy of this book direct from us you will also receive ten bonus patterns dispatched as a .pdf download

In addition to the Edward's Menagerie book we also have individual animal patterns and animal pattern crochet kits available separately. Our individual crochet patterns come in a universal A4 format linked to your confirmation email for download.

The animal patterns can be found HERE.


Our TOFT Edward's Menagerie animal kits contain 100g DK Yarn in your choice of colour wrapped up in a TOFT cotton tote project bag. To complete your crochet toy you will need some stuffing plus a scrap of black thread for eyes and nose details.

Once you’ve made your crocheted animals we’d love to see them, so use ‘#edsanimals’ in your Instagram, Facebook or Twitter posts and we can share some of them with our other fans! 

The Edward’s Menagerie patterns only use the basic crochet stitches and all animals are worked in the British double crochet stitch (American single crochet). Even if you are a seasoned crocheter it may be useful to take a glimpse at the dc2tog decrease and the colour change instruction as they may differ from techniques you have used before.
