Overview

From the authors of the beloved and best-selling Knit Your Own Dog, Knit Your Own Cat, and Knit Your Own Dog: The Second Litter comes Knit Your Own Zoo! With easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for 24 animals, it's an irresistible guide to knitting a single exotic pet or an entire stuffed menagerie.

What could be better than a cuddly koala or a long-necked giraffe to call your own? Knit Your Own Zoo includes patterns for both, as well as a tiger, crocodile, penguin, meerkat, elephant, armadillo, panda, a kangaroo and her joey, and 14 other delightful creatures. The animals are surprisingly easy to make; with a few evenings of work, you can have a covetable companion for life. Given a week, you could be charging admission to your own nature park!

Along with the knitting patterns, Sally and Joanna also include brief descriptions of the various species and offer tips and advice on sewing up and embellishing the animals.

And, of course, these knitted animals are much easier to look after than the real things-they don't eat, won't make a mess, and are legal to keep in your home.

Editorial Reviews

We might have different opinions about the world's most adorable wild animals, but chances are that you will find your favorite species among the sweet knitted creations in this new book by Knit Your Dog and Knit Your Own Cat authors Susan Muir and Joanna Osborne. The patterns in this crafty paperback original include penguins, panda, kangaroo, elephant, and the marginally less lovable crocodile.
