Amigurumi-expert and fairy tale lover Tessa van Riet-Ernst puts numerous world famous fairy tale characters in a new crochet jacket - all with a little twist! The big bad wolf is secretly a softy, but he tries to look more dangerous by wearing a spiky collar. And Prince Charming is still not sure which princess stole his heart: the lovely Snow White or Cinderella. Or maybe Rapunzel, with her beautiful long hair? Goldilocks, Little Red Riding Hood, the seven goats, the ugly duckling and the three little pigs all play a leading role. This book contains 8 world famous stories and more than 20 new patterns. Projects range from beginner-friendly to suitable for the advanced crocheter. Each project comes with easy-to-follow instructions as well as explanations for all stitches used.
