Book Review: Creature Feetures

A few weeks ago, I received a review copy of this book in the mail.

Creature Feetures is a book containing 30 crochet patterns for baby booties. With lots of people in my life having wee ones, I had to take a closer look at this book.

I wasn't disappointed! There are so many cute patterns in this book. The book is split up into chapters: Out of this World, Wild Animals, Cute Creatures, and Good Enough to Eat. There are so many creative baby booties in these categories. Here are some of my favorites:
These Beepbot Booties are so adorable. 

Obviously the Baa Baa Booties are a favorite.

These Burger Booties are so creative and hilarious. I have a friend who will be having his first child later this year that would think these are awesome!

The burger-loving guy mentioned above has a watermelon-obsessed wife. I think I need to make these Tropical Watermelon Booties for her!

One thing I really like about this book is that each pattern has a "Stitches and Skills" section, letting you know the skills you need for the pattern. For example, the Adorable Ducklings booties list working in rounds, working into front and back loops, sc2tog (single crochet 2 stitches together) and crab stitch. That's great - if it's something that's not listed in the Crochet Basics section of the book, you can easily look up the technique listed before starting.

With row-by-row written instructions and detailed finishing information, I think most crocheters would find these patterns easy to tackle. If you're looking for quick baby projects and want to try some new techniques, this book is definitely for you.

I will definitely be trying some of these patterns out in coming weeks. I look forward to showing off these creative creations on the blog.

Creature Feetures is now available at your local LYS or bookstore. Want to see more? You can see all the patterns on the book's Ravelry page.
