How to Crochet an Amigurumi Pigeon
Unable to get his daily croissant and bread from the London tourists, Paul the pigeon decided to learn how to bake his own. During lockdown he has mastered sourdough, perfected pastry, and watched every single episode of bake off. Crochet your own Paul the pigeon and share his love of baking.

How to Crochet an Amigurumi Rhino
Riley the rhino is sporting his camera and safari hat, as his favourite hobby is photographing humans on safari/in the wild.
With or without his accessories Riley is an easy and chunky faux taxidermy amigurumi make, and seeing as he is a rhino: only chunky would do

Have yourself a hoot making Oscar the Owl! The cute character is always ready for a good kip. With his cosy blanket wrapped around him, fluffy slippers for his talons and a little eye mask, he can fall asleep anywhere, anytime. He can even fall asleep standing up – it’s his little party trick!
Would you like to visit Neverland? Fly to Italy for a few hours? Go swimming in a sea of yarn? Anything is possible in the land of dreams and Oscar’s got quite the imagination, so no wonder dreaming is his favourite hobby!
