Knitted Animals by Jean Greenhowe
Jean Greenhowe has been designing and publishing her distinctive patterns for many years. Her beautifully detailed dolls and toys all look so much more complicated than they are - if you can knit, purl, increase and decrease, then you can make her designs. All toys are made using standard DK yarn, with some requiring small amounts of a number of shades, so they an excellent way to use up the oddments that every knitter has tucked away. Or why not try our own award winning Deramores Studio DK or Deramores Baby DK. The easiest of shapings and stitches are used to create this selection of 14 appealing little designs which only require oddments of yarn. Puppy is 17cm (6¾”), The Duck Family measure 13cm (5in) high, 9½cm (3¾”) and 6cm (2⅜”), Four little Mice 12cm (4¾”) tall,Puss in Boots 23cm (9in). Owl measures 16cm (6¼”), Koala, Piglet, Bunny and Panda- all 17cm (6¾”), Elephants 15cm (6in) high, and Penguin 18cm (7in). There are also patterns for the Frog Family 21cm (8¼”) and 16cm (6¼”), Mother and Baby Whales 16cm (6¼”) and 12cm (4¾”), and lastly an 8cm (3in) Kitten curled up on his very own knitted cushion.
