By A John VINE 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.

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!!!

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!

My knitting partner and I are keen (possibly obsessive!) knitters of toys, particularly animals, and have most of the books and patterns available from the past 30 years or so. From this book we have so far made the moose, crocodile, monkey, lion and elephant, and have found the designs to be some of the best we've come across. The shapes are very pleasing and manage to embody the essence of each animal. The instructions are mostly clear and straightforward, and the photographs are very helpful for showing how the parts are assembled. The finished toys definitely have the "cute" factor.

These knitted animals are charming and everyone says "aah" when they see them. Beautiful colour photos and clear instructions throughout. I want to make them all, and will do!

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 !!!!
