This cute crochet animal project forms part of our 'Edward's Menagerie' collection of amigurumi crochet toys designed by Kerry Lord. This amigurumi crochet animal kit contains our luxurious pure wool yarn and an easy-to-follow downloadable pattern with video links for all the techniques.
Highland cows (known locally to Scots as 'coos') are the oldest cattle breed in the world, originating from the Highlands and the Western Isles of Scotland. They were originally black, but the Victorians selectively bred them to become the standard 'ginger' colour we all recognise and love today. Depending on the breeder, you can see Highland cows in the whole natural spectrum of colours or, like us, you can make one in every colour!
THIS KIT CONTAINS: 100g of TOFT's luxury DK wool in the colours of your choice. Shown here using:
Main colour: 75g Fudge
