I have been working my way through the How to Crochet Animals series of books by Kerry Lord and this week I’m taking a look at the last book in the series currently available called How to Crochet Animals: Ocean.
Thank you to Lark Crafts who provided this book to me free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion.

How to Crochet Animals: Ocean is one of 4 different books in the series. There are also Wild, Farm and Pets. Check out my review of Wild HERE, Farm HERE.
Kerry Lord is a recognizable name for amigurumi toy makers since releasing her book Edward’s Menagerie which was a huge hit, in 2014. She has gone on to publish multiple amigurumi pattern books since then that have been popular amigurumi pattern book titles. How to Crochet Animals: Ocean is one of the latest releases by Kerry Lord and it contains 25 crochet animal patterns for ocean animals and creatures. How to Crochet Animals: Oceans contains the patterns for many animals that live in or near the oceans on our planet. The animals contained in the book are:
|Sea Slug||Hermit Crab|
As in the last three Kerry Lord books that I reviewed, How to Crochet Animals: Wild, How to Crochet Animals: Farm and How to Crochet Animals: Pets, this book starts off with talking about essential tools and yarn. Just like the others, this book touches on the gauge aspect of amigurumi toys but doesn’t provide enough detail to be of much use in assisting new crocheters understanding why it is important or how it affects amigurumi toys. The rest of the resources in the book are clear and well-laid out.
The toys themselves are cute and in this book I really enjoyed the hermit crab and hammerhead shark patterns. My kids are big into ocean creatures so there were lots of requests for toys from this book. As I’ve come to expect with the books in the How to Crochet Animals series, the patterns are clear and easy to understand and contain technique pages throughout the book to assist readers in learning new techniques needed to successfully complete projects.
I have enjoyed exploring and checking out the How to Crochet Animals series by Kerry Lord and have found all four of them to be well-written resources that are accessible for a variety of skill levels.
