Over 20 Crochet Patterns for Fun Floor Mats and Matching Accessories
by Ira Rott
After Ira Rott’s elephant rug pattern went viral in June 2016, there was a huge spike of interest in the pattern and its designer. Now with thousands of followers on YouTube and Pinterest, fiber artist Ira Rott is sharing over 20 designs for Animal Rugs and Accessories in CROCHET ANIMAL RUGS (F+W Media / SewandSo; August 2018; Trade Paperback; $22.99).
Each rug design is accompanied by a matching pillow design and a smaller accessory to continue the theme. Get creative and transform your child’s room—with decor your kids will adore—into a magical modern bedroom inspired by animals with accessories ranging from security blankets to stool covers, bed book tidies, placemats and toy bags. Crochet rugs are the perfect place for your children to read and play. The book features 21 animal-themed patterns. Choose from an amazing elephant, a sweet giraffe, a cute cat, a fun-loving monkey, a cool crab, a friendly dinosaur and a rock-star panda! You can decorate a child's room or nursery with items from this book and spend only a few evenings making each piece.

Cassandra's Review- The book features very cute designs that are great for kids and family gifts. I think the projects will be super hard for me to learn or create, but if you are experienced in the art of crochet this should be a pretty straight forward and excellent book.
