Darwin the Squid was originally designed by Kerry Lord for a crochet workshop at London's Natural History Museum, which is home to the giant squid (over 8 metres long!) that this kit is based on. Using an array of crochet techniques, this squid is quick and easy to make, perfect for any marine-themed display.
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 DK yarn and an easy-to-follow downloadable pattern with video links for all the techniques.
