Zebra Trophy Head Crochet Pattern

If you've got little zoologists on your hands, then you need to make a crochet project they'll adore! This zebra trophy head is the perfect wall decor for your animal enthusiasts. Soft, cushy, elegant, and cute, this zebra crochet pattern will look stunning mounted on any wall.

From the Blogger: "This pattern by Vanessa Mooncie originally appeared in the book Animal Heads: Trophy Heads to Crochet and is shared with permission from GMC Publications. The direction of the zebra’s stripes is determined by the shaping of the head, crocheted in rounds and short rows. The mane is made by attaching tassels to the stitches and brushing through the yarn to tangle the fibers and help it stand on end."

I have seen this book and think it is great the pattern is being offered free. The directions are good but upon reading them I doubt I would crochet the project unless I really wanted a challenge. I do love zebras though and the pattern really captures the unique coloring. Thank you for offering it.
