A fun selection of 22 popular animals, all based on one simple body shape, all brought together in this appealing pattern book. A cute little pig, a cuddly lion, a big-eared elephant, an irresistible cat, an adorable sheep and a whimsical unicorn are just a few of the characters in the enchanting woolly menagerie. Children and grown ups will love the different characters, and knitters will be delighted with the easy methods of making one. Warm and full of personality, the animals are developed from the basic shape with ease, with knitters having the choice of different ears, arms, legs and tails to accentuate individual features. A start up section shows them how, close up photographs are accompanied by instructions and charts and the way the author designer has paired the animals up for ease of reference is charming. Knitters of all skill levels will find much to enjoy in this book if they are seeking the perfect way to create a special gift for a child, or if they are looking for new ideas.
