52 of 52 people found the following review helpful By A John TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 May 2010
Format: Paperback
This book contains patterns for 15 wild animals, an elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion, tiger, giant panda, monkey, snakes, hippo, crocodile, rhino, warthog, koala, moose and penguin. The design of the book is lovely - the illustrations are great, and there are some really charming facts about the animals interspersed in the pattern area.

I confess I'm not entirely convinced by the patterns for the giraffe and zebra, but the elephant, monkey, panda bear, warthog, crocodile, koala and moose are all fabulous, with an endearing charm that will make them firm favourites with children.

The patterns aren't difficult, there is a guide to how to knit, a glossary of terms, and how to do the stitches used. I did feel that by not using the conventional Row 1, row 2 etc... that the patterns themselves might be a little confusing for a beginner, but that's a minor niggle. The patterns all use DK wool (an acrylic is recommended), with 3.25mm needles, and would be perfect for using up stash. Tension square details are given, but we are assured that the tension for stuffed toys isn't critical, as long as the same type of yarn is used throughout.

This is the first book by Sarah Keen, and it shows both a distinctive style, and a great deal of promise. This is definitely one of the books worth getting.

Format: Paperback
This book is lovely. Wonderful colour pictures and as stated from the other review with both front and back views, always handy when trying to sew something up. All the patterns are knitted in double knit yarn and no particular fibre is recommended so whatever suits you. I will definitely be knitting all the animals in this book!!!

Format: Paperback
Really good knitting book, creating fantastic knitted toys. I have knitted 3 so far and all have come out looking great!

Suitable for a competent beginner the instructions are easy to follow, and the 'upright' toys are all based around the same body shape making subsequent toys easy to make.

I would really recommend this book to anyone who enjoys knitting toys.

Format: Paperback
Everything about this adorable book has already been said! Very cute.

The purpose of this review is simply to direct users to a set of clarifications and corrections that the publisher has issued. Direct links are not allowed in Amazon reviews, but if you Google for "GMC Publications" you'll be able to get to the publisher's website (it's the Guild of Master Craftsmen one, not the General Medical Council one!). Once there, click the link "GMC Craft Book Errata" at the bottom of the page, and you'll be taken to a page of corrections for this and several other books.

Hopefully this will help those who find themselves struggling on one or two of the patterns. Good luck!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is full of beautiful, easy to follow patterns. I am not an experienced knitter, but with the help of the "glossary" I can understand the terms used in the patterns, and the author also included diagrams of how to do some of the stitches. As well as all this, the animals you can make are very cute. I can't wait to have my whole zoo finished!

I love this book! The illustrations are really clear - both front and back view !!! I've made the monkey and the instructions were easy and straight forward even for an inexperienced knitter. Highly recommend this book for someone wanting to so start their own knitted zoo !!!!
