About the Author

Sarah-Jane Hicks has always enjoyed crochet and crafting in her spare time. She was taught to crochet as a child by her mum and grandmother. Previously she worked as a tax adviser and is now a freelance crochet designer. She has had patterns published in various popular craft and crochet magazines, and has over 76K followers on her Instagram account: @flo_and_dot

Sarah-Jane lives in Norfolk in the UK. Her first book for Search Press, Amigurumi Christmas, has sold over 17.5k copies since publication in 2020; Sarah-Jane's most recent title, All-New Twenty to Make Animal Granny Squares, was published in 2022 and has already sold over 4,200 copies.


For over 40 years, Aardman has entertained and charmed the world, creating much loved characters and bringing unforgettable stories to life.

Peter Lord and David Sproxton began their animating partnership at school. In 1972 they registered the name Aardman Animations. After graduating, they moved to Bristol in 1976 where they produced their first professional production, creating Morph for the children's programme Take Hart.

Aardman is proudly based in Bristol, UK, a city with a rich creative culture.


A real treat for Wallace and Gromit fans, Sarah-Jane Hicks' latest book takes inspiration from the short films and includes patterns to make eight of the lead characters, including Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep and Preston the Cyberdog, plus accessories such as Gromit's raincoat and sou'wester from The Wrong Trousers.
*Inside Crochet, Issue 160*

As a child who grew up loving Wallace and Gromit, and now with my own children who really enjoy it, I couldn't wait to crochet some of my own characters. The Wallace and Gromit Cracking Crochet book by Sarah-Jane Hicks is a great book taking you step-by-step through making 12 different classic characters. It includes a guide for materials and tools, instructions for the stitches and techniques that are used, then leads on to the instructions for each character. The whole book is written in a clear and detailed way, with lots of beautiful photos of both the projects, plus iconic scenes from the animation which make the book really visually pleasing to use. It really is a 'Cracking' book and I can't wait to get stuck in!
*Oh Sew Bootiful*
