Crocheted farm animals are just as cute as the real thing and make great playmates!
While written as a single pattern in the magazine, this is actually a set of toys, including a barn shaped bag, a sheep, a pig, a baby pig, a cow, a chicken and a baby chick.
The pattern calls for 6 skeins of Red Heart Super Saver, but that is because there are many different toys using different colors. Each toy is small and uses a very small amount of yarn. The bag is the largest piece and uses a significant amount of one skein of red yarn.
