INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. There are illustrations to go with the basic knots used in these macramé projects at the front of the booklet, but no illustrations with the directions for each project, so if you don't have a good idea already what you are doing, the instructions could be frustrating.

SUMMARY- I didn't want to give this booklet an unfair rating for patterns - because it really doesn't have any, except for things like felt ears and beaks. On the other hand, these macramé animals look pretty fantastic, and are definitely unique to anything else I've seen used for making a soft toy. The projects in this booklet are Billy Bear, Bumble Bee, Murphy Mouse, Sassy Swan(which looks particularly nifty), Lucy Lamb, Cuddly Cat, Ronnie Rabbit, Playful Pooch, Slick Chick, Polly Panda, and Leopold Lion. If you're looking for different techniques to incorporate into your work, this is well worth a look.
