10 Adorable Crocheted Creatures with Interchangeable Outfits

Cute Crocheted Woodland Creatures

Step into a whimsical world of crochet critters with this amazing collection! Choose from 10 delightful characters, such as a raccoon who loves to stir up trouble, a fox that’s always up for adventure, and a wise owl who has plenty of wisdom to share.

Create your own woodland menagerie with the detailed patterns and comprehensive techniques section included.

Don’t forget to craft accessories to share between the critters for even more fun!

Let the charming photography and project ideas inspire you as you embark on this magical journey of crochet. It’ll be sure to make a wonderful gift for any crocheter in your life!


The book includes beautiful step-by-step photos and written instructions for making the 10 woodland creatures and their clothes and accessories, plus a detailed techniques section.

The accessories for the toys are indicated in a separate dotted box at the end of the woodland animal’s main pattern. You may also be able to interchange some of the clothing items for some of the similarly sized animals like Freda Fox, Matilda Mouse, Danny Deer, Susie Squirrel and Ruby Rabbit. You may need small adjustments for tail sizes if the animal is wearing pants.

Each of the animals is crocheted with DK Weight / Light Weight Yarn [3] and a 3.5 mm (E) hook. Olivia Owl also uses a 5 mm (H) crochet hook.

If you are not using the exact yarn and hook listed in the pattern, I suggest that you try the garments on your finished toys for size as you make them, to be certain they are fitting as you would expect.

Benji Bear

Benji is very strong and full of fun. He often lets his smaller friends ride on his back when they all go off on an adventure. He is also the popular fellow to snuggle up to at bedtime.

The Basics

All of the projects are written in UK crochet terms.

If you are used to following US crochet patterns, don’t let the fact that these are written in UK terms hold you back!

If you forget though, each stitch is explained in the Crochet Techniques section (pages 112-119), with helpful diagrams, so it is easy to double check what stitch is being made.

Getting Started

This section includes specifics about the crochet hooks, yarn, stuffing, needles and plastic safety eyes. It also includes diagrams and written instructions to explain how to hold your crochet hook, your yarn and how to make a slip knot.

The conversions chart is located on page 108 and includes UK crochet terms and US crochet term equivilents. The abbreviations are listed on page 111.

Crochet Stitches

Step-by-step written instructions and diagrams are provided for the following stitches:

  • Chain Stitch (ch st)
  • Slit stitch (sl st)
  • Double Crochet (dc)
  • Half treble (htr)
  • Treble crochet (tr)
  • Double treble (dtr)
  • Working in rows
  • Working in rounds
  • Joining a ring
  • Magic ring
  • Changing colours in the middle of a row
  • Increasing (inc)
  • Decreasing (dc2tog)
  • Making a shell
  • Working through the back loop (tbl)
  • Crab stitch
  • Bobble

Finishing Touches

Finishing your crocheted toys and outfits is just as important as crocheting the individual parts. The finishing touches section includes written instructions, diagrams and tips to make your project look like the toys in the book. You will find the following techniques:

  • whip stitch
  • surface slip stitches
  • weaving in ends
  • using a pompom maker
  • creating tassels

Embroidery Stitches

Different embroidery stitches are used to create personality; to add features like noses and to give clothing extra detail. The stitches used and explained are:

  • Back stitch
  • Chain stitch
  • Satin stitch

Blocking

While the crocheted animals do not need to be blocked, the clothing will benefit from blocking. When you block your projects the fibers can relax and the stitches can look more even. Blocking on a blocking board with rust-proof pins and spraying with tepid water is recommended. Let the work dry completely.

  1. Such cute woodland animals. I think the fox is my favorite, but it’s a close tie with the hedgehog.
