Note From the Editor

Crochet World readers fell in love with our adorable Into the Jungle set that was published as a three-part series in the April, June and August 2013 issues, and many asked if there would be more stackable ring animal sets published in the future. After the incredible popularity of the Into the Jungle set, we asked the designer, Cindy Cseh, if she would consider doing another set for us with a different theme.

As you can see from our cover photo, she agreed and created the delightful At the Zoo set that begins as a three-part series with this issue. The adorable hippo, rhino and panda will absolutely steal your heart, and the sassy snake is a little boy's delight. Topping the menagerie is a magnificent parrot with amazing details.

All of the animals in the zoo set are interchangeable with the animals in the jungle set (the animals in both sets can be found in the jungle and in the zoo!). Kids will have hours of fun intermingling the animals from both sets into a variety of playful groups.

We hope you will love making the At the Zoo set and that it will create some playtime magic for your little ones!

Happy stitching,
