Foxes, cows, jellyfish, owls, skunks, deer, and more come alive in these 30 whimsical projects that are crocheted using the popular amigurumi technique, then mounted for display as unique conversation starters and home decor. Easy to make and bursting with tongue-in-cheek humor.

Crochet Taxidermy puts a new twist on amigurumi, the popular Japanese method of creating considerably cute stuffed animals with oversized heads. In this delightful collection, heads of animals from farm and forest, sea and safari come to life with irresistible details like the drowsy eye (for the shy deer and sleepy octopus) and fuzzy yarn (for the skittery skunk’s stripe and lazy lion’s mane). Step-by-step instructions and adorable photos guide you through these 30 easy crochet patterns. Most require just one skein of yarn, so they’re affordable and quick to crochet! 

Baker & Taylor
Shares the instructions for crochet projects of animal trophy heads, including a fox, a giraffe, and a jellyfish.

While the ideas are brilliant, the instructions are so sparse, you must use your best crochet-brain to complete the pattern.
