Canadian Crochet

From Patons and Balwins of Toronto, Canada, this Beehive knitting and crochet book features patterns for stuffed animals including pandas, a Scotty dog, a colorful turtle, and a cute baby duck. There are two rug patterns, one crocheted in rows and one knitted with a Greek key motif. Other patterns include a lampshade cover, a knitting bag, and crocheted mats.

Also of interest are two patterns for art crochet wall hangings. One is crocheted in rows with a fringed edging. The other is made in motifs that are sewn together.

Book has a French translation for crochet and knitting abbreviations.
