Description

Soft, cuddly, and totally wild!
 
Stuffed toys are great projects for beginners, but when you’ve grown bored with dolls and bears what do you knit next? How about a tiger, a warthog, or a moose? KNITTED WILD ANIMALS has a menagerie of soft, squeezable wild animal designs to inspire your knitting wild side. All of the toys feature an irresistibly pear-shaped body, realistic colors, and lots of fun details—a soft, curly mane for the lion, trunk wrinkles for the elephant, and a banana snack for the monkey.
 
With a primer on knitting basics to chapters on embroidering and stuffing your super cute safari softie, even a beginner can knit these cushy, cuddly creatures!

Praise For Knitted Wild Animals

"Those who don't have pets might want to try knitting their own. Knitted Wild Animals, Sarah Keen's imaginative and charming knitting guide, shows how to create a menagerie of irresistable, cuddly creatures--lion, koala, giraffe, zebra, wart hog. This is something for those who have not only January hours to spare, but a demonstrated nimbleness of fingers." --New York Times
