Exactly what I wanted a book with farm yard animals in. I am not a knitter, but do have basic knitting skills, so thought following a pattern would give me something like what I was after. I wanted a donkey knitting, so bought this book and followed the pattern to the stitch, It looked like a cow, the shape was all wrong. I ended up hand sewing bits here n there, and sewing bits into the body, 1st attempt was ok,ish, but will try again. I'm finding Bits of these patterns do not add up, I've repeatedly pulled out my knitting thinking I was wrong, to find out the PATTERN is wrong.This is not good for a book that has been published. The chickens were good, sheep ok, It did not take long to knit the animals, which a beginner loves, and am excited to try other animals. I will master it, even if i do need a needle n thread as well as knitting needles. I have loaned my friends this book to try out the animals I have struggled with. For them to come back and say It is the instructions in the book that is wrong. Not the best book to buy Very confusing and annoying. Not happy with this book.

This is a small (32 page) book with really cute instructions for animals, knitted pipe cleaner people and buildings. As mentioned by another reviewer, the details for the base are sketchy and i would recommend you also get Jan Messent's 'Knitted Gardens' which DOES give more info on a base, together with other features you could incorporate into your farm (hedges, beehives etc). Incidentally, Jan Messent edited & illustrated 'Knitted Farmyard' so the two books have a lot in common

This took me a whole year to make and turned out incredibly expensive,after buying all the florist foam for the farm buildings and the cost of the rug canvas and binding. Wool I used up loads of ends but still had to buy loads more. The only thing I havent done is the people as they require pipe cleaners and wadding far too fiddly to warrant the effort. Having said that the final result is good and my grand daughter loves it as its so soft to play on. Hopefully it will become a family heirloom!

A few nice patterns but most of the animals are a bit too rudimentary. Was hoping for something a bit more detailed.
