Knit this charming collection of cuddly stuffed animal toys by best-selling author, Louise Crowther.
This is a curated collection of previously published knitting patterns from Louise's two animal toys titles: Knitted Animal Friends and Knitted Wild Animal Friends. We have combined the animal toy patterns from both books to create the ultimate knitted animal book featuring just the toys. This collection of 25 knitted animal toys features all the animal patterns that have published in the author's previous two titles and include Hugo the Zebra, Olivia the Elephant, Theo the Lion, Sophie the Tiger and Edward the Sloth as more domestic animals such as Bella the Cat, George the Dog and Dorothy the Mouse.
Louise's knitting patterns are renowned for their attention to detail as well as being easy to follow. The animals are all approximately 40cm (16in) tall and their long arms, legs and tails are perfect for little hands to hold. The animals all have the same standard shaped bodies, arms and legs so once you've got the hang of the pattern you will easily be able to follow the instructions to adapt it to different types of animals by adding stripes, patches and contrasting paws. There are separate instructions for the head, tails and different types of fur where necessary. All the instructions are included for how to make up each different animal with step-by-step instructions and photography. Instructions are also included for all the key techniques and stitches required to complete the animals.
