A Review: The Crochet Creatures of Myth & Legend Book And What You Need To Know About It

Hello everyone! Tara here—

Have you seen the new Crochet Creatures of Myth & Legend book?!

Crochet Creatures of Myth and Legend Book

The book was written by Megan Lapp (also known as @CraftyIntentions on social media) and was just released on 3/01/2023.

With 19 incredible designs, well-written instructions, and plenty of pictures to show the steps to create these fantastical designs, this book is an absolute must-have for anyone with a love of mythical creatures!

It’s a must for crocheters that are surrounded by people who love the fantasy genre too (think of all of the birthday gifts you can make).

The book itself is 246 pages long and PACKED with everything you need to know to make these unique designs. The patterns are thorough and Lapp made sure they were easy to follow.

In the book, you can find patterns for Griffins, Phoenixes, Unicorns, and, of course, Dragons. You can also find designs for a few other creatures and critters too.

My favorite is the Gargoyle.

With each design, Lapp encourages you make the creatures your own by giving you plenty of patterns that you can choose from. For example: for the dragon’s tail ornamentation, 7 different options and patterns are given, but you only select one for your dragon.

She even added photos of a dragon that had the Phoenix’s wings attached, so mixing the pieces of the beasts is also encouraged.

With endless combinations, you can make a creature for everyone you know and never make the same one twice.

As if that wasn’t enough, Lapp also includes the yarn amounts you’ll need for each piece, which means that this could be the most incredible stash-busting project you’ve ever made!

Check this book out and make sure you’re following @CraftyIntentions on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Etsy!
