5.0 out of 5 stars Therapeutic Dismemberment for the Discerning, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knit Your Own Zombie: Over 1000 Combinations to Rip'n'Reassemble for Horrifying Results (Paperback)
I'm an experienced knitter so the Classic Zombie at the start of the book took me just a couple of days to complete. I've only had the book for about a week and have also completed Frankenstein's monster, Zombie Fatale and Dracula and have started knitting the Gravedigger.

They stand about 9 inches (23cm) tall when completed and the instructions are easy to follow, although I have found a couple of typos so far ... e.g. for the back of the Classic Zombie's jacket it says to work 22 rows in st st but it should only be 12 rows.

The safety information is shown on page 4 - these are definitely not suitable for children (besides, why should they have all the fun!)
Tension is 12 sts and 16 rows to 4cm square over st st on 3mm needles (UK)
Use yarn that has at least 20% wool because 100% acrylic stretches too much.
Don't overstuff them!
The hardest part so far has been sewing on the velcro fastenings ... but it's worth the effort for the satisfying sound when you rip your zombies apart.

Now ... if I could just get the words of the Monster Mash out of my head .........
