Knitted Wild Animal Friends by Louise Crowther
Go wild with this brand new collection of adorable knitted wild animal toys and their clothes and accessories by best-selling author Louise Crowther.
After the success of Knitted Animal Friends, Louise has created knitting patterns for 12 new, wild animals in their own wonderful wardrobes. This collection includes a zebra in dungarees, an elephant in a tutu, a lion in jeans, a tiger in a party dress, a chimpanzee in a rainbow cardigan, a sloth in pyjamas (of course!), a koala in a furry gilet, a bear in a Fair Isle sweater, a hippo in overalls, a panda in a duffle coat, a giraffe in a pinafore and a rhinoceros in a day dress all with their own distinct personal style!
Louise's attention to detail means that every outfit fits perfectly and you will enjoy creating all of the details that make each one so distinctive. There are instructions for how to construct the animal dolls and outfits as well as step-by-step photography for all of the techniques for making up the animals. Louise also explains how to follow charts for the colour work details in the outfits, as well as step-by-step tutorials for any special stitches.
The animal dolls have the same basic body shape and size so that all of the outfits are interchangeable (they also work for the dolls in Knitted Animal Friends too), so you can mix and match your favourites. Or you can just make the animals!
There are so many possibilities for animal and outfit changes to make the perfect doll, there's something for everyone.
