As soon as I saw this book I was super excited!
There are 27 brilliant patterns held in this book.


You even get the pattern for the safari mat they go on.


Even if you are new to knitting you should be able to give
the set a go.
They are knitted flat and then sewn together at the end.


There are step by step instructions for each stage of
making your animal.


Even the putting together of the animals is explained.
There are easy to follow pictures and instructions
that start you on your way.


Even the embroidery stitches are explained so you
can get that all important look for your animal.


Each part of the animal is detailed.
You get the pattern for each part, how to make it up.
What materials you will need and what difficulty
level the pattern is.

This set would make such a beautiful and treasured
gift to any child.
I am sure it's a gift that will be passed down the generations.

Or why not make some for a fun decoration around the house.
Or some of the smaller animals would make perfect keyrings.

Everything you see on the front and the back cover
is included in the book!

It's amazing what you get!
I think they would also make up a fantastic Noah's ark animals.

Before I've even made up any of the patterns
I've had my use out of this book.
I keep picking it up and just flicking through.
Every page brings a smile to your face.

I've set myself a challenge!
I'm going to try and make the set for when my niece is old enough.
She is only 8 months nearly 9 months at the moment.
I want her to have this as a present
as I think it would be sooo special!
So you'll be seeing more of this book!

Now the exciting NEWS!
I'm afraid it's only for my UK followers
(so international followers!)
