5.0 out of 5 stars calling all meerkat fans, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knitted Meerkats (Hardcover)
If you like meerkats, you'll love this book. The toys are only about six iches tall, so they don't take long to make. There are also some baby ones about three inches tall. Toys include a ballerina, footballer, Santa Claus, bride and groom.

5.0 out of 5 stars another good book, 25 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought Fiona's previous book Knit your own Royal Wedding,I was keen to get this one. The patterns are easy enough for a beginner knitter, giving instructions for cast on and off, knit and purl stitches also increasing and decreasing, all with pictures showing how to do them. As well as patterns you get the story of Noah and there is a model of the Ark to make at the back of the book, so you can display your animals when you make them.
Detailed instructions for Noah, Mrs Noah, and 14 pairs of animals.

5.0 out of 5 stars for vampire film fans, 6 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gothic Knits (Paperback)
By the author of "Babes in the Wool" and "Knitted Fairies".
The dolls are designed more for older children and adults as some of them might look a little bit scary to young children.
There are patterns for basic female and male dolls.
There are detailed instructions for knitting 9 dolls, 6 female and 3 male, all dressed in Gothic styles, with lots of pictures showing how to make the dolls hairstyles and embroider or paint faces and makeup.
There are 2 sizes of dolls, four are 23" tall and five are 20" tall.
The clothes are mainly knitted in black, red and purple,and can be trimmed with lace and beads to suit yourself.
A great book for fans of Vampire and horror films!

4.0 out of 5 stars for dinosaur fans, 6 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knitted Dinosaurs (Paperback)
15 knitting patterns for everyone who loves dinosaurs. Lots of pictures and interesting facts about each animal. The toy sizes range from the smallest 7"(18cm)high PTERODACTYL and 9"(23cm)high TROODONS to the 18"(46cm) from nose to tail STEGOSAURUS and the largest 31"(78cm) from nose to tail DIPLODOCUS.
The toys are knitted with Double Knitting and Chunky yarn, and as no-one knows what colours the original dinosaurs were, you can make them any colours you like.

5.0 out of 5 stars gold medal winner, 3 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book will be great for sports fans as mascots, as well as for knitters. There are 20 different dolls to knit, 10 male and 10 female sportspeople. Patterns include outfits and accessories for each sport,including snowboarding, skiing, swimming, archery, gymnastics,karate, football, ice skating and tennis. Good for using up your odd balls of yarn as the dolls are not too big. There are even patterns to knit your own gold, silver and bronze medals for the winners. Very useful for this year's Olympics if you didn't manage to get a ticket!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
lots of patterns for different breeds of cats and kittens. Some unusual breeds, like the Maine Coon, Bengal, Turkish Van and Devon Rex as well as Tabby, Siamese, ginger and black and white cats.
Little stories about each breed, includes famous owners of various breeds.
Some cats are standing, some sitting and some lying down.
