Description du produit

Revue de presse

Muir and Osborne (Knit Your Own Dog, Knit Your Own Cat) have once again assembled a collection of irresistible knitted animals. This book does exactly what it says it does, offering patterns for a veritable menagerie of miniature creatures. Patterns detail familiar animals such as the elephant and crocodile, as well as such less familiar animals as the anteater or meerkat. With the clever use of pipe cleaners, these animals can stand, sit, sprawl, or, in the case of the Fruit Bat, hang from the rafters. Fun details include fringe of all types, from lion manes to orangutan fur, and color work that replicates zebra stripes, leopard spots, and even mandrill coloring, among others. Two mother-and-child duos are especially darling: a seal and pup, and a kangaroo with removable joey. Patterns require focus but are, as described in the book's subtitle, easy to follow. Devotees of knitted creatures will find a lot to love in this collection.

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Best in Show series is an outstanding global success. Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne are back - this time with designs for 25 wild animals. There is something here for everyone, with instructions for knitting spots, stripes, fur, scales, trunks, wings and beaks! The animals are surprisingly easy to make. It will only take a few evenings to create yourself an exotic pet or reproduce your favourite species. These knitted animals in miniature are much easier to look after than the real things - they don't need feeding, they won't make a mess and they take up hardly any room. This book is a real zoological tour of the globe with animals from all over the world. Patterns include tiger, crocodile, penguin, cheetah, anteater, ring-tailed lemur, camel, giraffe, panda and kangaroo. Idiosyncratic descriptions of the various species accompany beautiful photography, making this book irresistible for both keen knitters and wildlife enthusiasts. Word count: 40,000

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Excellent Book of Patterns for Small, Realistic, Knitted Display Animals 18 février 2014
Par 🌺 Lynne E. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
KNIT YOUR OWN ZOO is another fine collection of patterns for small knitted display animals (not really suitable for knitted toys) from the authors of Knit Your Own Dog and Knit Your Own Cat. These patterns are well-written, with clear instructions, but probably require advanced intermediate knitting skills (or beyond), because each animal is constructed from many small, shaped parts.

For example, the wonderful giraffe is assembled from (1) a right back leg, (2) a left back leg, (3) a right front leg, (4) a left front leg, (5) a right side of body, (6) a left side of body, (7) a head, (8) a tummy, (9) ears, (10) tail, and (11) mane. The parts for the legs are held on stitch holders until it's time to add the body; some body stitches are also held on stitch holders until it's time to add the head; and so on. The giraffe's "spots" are knitted in using Fair Isle and Intarsia methods. The mane is crocheted; the eyes are embroidered; the tail uses buttonhole stitch; the "horns" are pipe cleaners. To finish, pipe cleaners are added for support when the animal is stuffed. The patterns are written out with row-by-row instructions. The animals are knit with fine yarn on US 2 and US 3 needles.

It amazes me, how well the authors replicate the animals' essential characteristics, so that each finished animal is immediately recognizable as the zoo animal it is intended to be. I really love the giraffe, the mandrill, the bat, the armadillo, the koala, the leopard, and the crocodile!

Patterns are included for the following animals: giant anteater, armadillo, fruit bat, ring-tailed lemur, brown bear, wolf, gray seal and pup, polar bear, penguin, crocodile, koala, chimpanzee, lion, leopard, tiger, zebra, mandrill, camel, meerkat, elephant, giraffe, panda, orangutan, and kangaroo and joey.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Cute Animals but Poor Directions 22 avril 2016
Par C. Antonak - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The patterns are unique and charming. The knitting directions are pretty straight forward, although I did find a couple of errors in the pattern. However, the assembly of the pieces parts of the pattern is poorly explained making it quite a challenge to figure out how the origami-like pieces fit together to create the final product. Luckily, I've been knitting for 45 years and have lots of experience, so I was able to create a wonderful mandrill ape - but basically this was despite the pattern in the book.

I'd love to make more little animals, since they are quite dear and difference, but I have to recover from my mandrill experience!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Unique knitted animal figures for display 1 mars 2017
Par Ladyprof - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was looking for knitting patterns for children's toys when I came across this. book. These patterns are specifically not intended for kids -- as clearly stated in the book. That makes me wonder why anyone would knit an animal for any reason other than a toy. I figured I could adapt the patterns so they would be acceptable as toys by removing pipe cleaners from the structure, however that may compromise the structure of the piece. I was going to return the book, but I may at some point want to try one and there are ideas that will be useful. The finished animals are really unique and attractive -- especially the meercats. Perhaps one day I'll try one.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for beginners 22 novembre 2015
Par kelika14 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I already own Knit Your Own Dog so I am familiar with the series written by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne. This particular series is not for beginners. Some of the instructions are a little vague and may require you experiment a little to get it right. I will say this, the patterns do take a bit more patience and time. Knitting the small body parts can get tedious. When I finished knitting all the pieces, I had my doubts. When the pieces come together, that's when the magic begins. The people I gave these to were quite impressed with the detail. The patience does pay off.
