Learn to Crochet Box: Simon the Sheep

If you're not sure where to start when it comes to learning how to crochet, look no further! TOFT's 'Learn to Crochet' boxes are the perfect place to begin your journey into the craft, and come with everything you need to complete your first project.

Packed into your 'Learn to Crochet' box is a copy of Kerry Lord's Edward's Menagerie book along with the yarn to make one of the best-selling beginner animals, Simon the Sheep, who has been the very first pattern that countless members of the TOFT community have learnt to crochet with. Inside you'll also find a crochet hook, top quality toy stuffing and a wool needle to sew your animal up once you've finished.

Alongside the pattern inside the book, you'll find lots of step-by-step instructions to help you learn all the crochet stitches and techniques you'll need to make your animal. There is plenty of online help too, with YouTube video tutorials that cover everything from how to read your pattern to stuffing and sewing up your animal once you've finished crocheting it. You can share your progress with the TOFT community on Instagram @toft_uk using the #edsanimals hashtag.

Edward's Menagerie contains the patterns for 50 animals and you'll receive a digital .pdf containing 10 additional bonus animals. Once you have completed Simon the Sheep, you'll want to move straight on to the next animal and before you know it, you'll have crocheted your very own menagerie!
