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.

This series of books are fun and I am amazed at the creativity of the authors. There are both classic zoo animals as well as some lesser known ones which creates a nice variety. The skill level varies so all knitters can find something to knit with pleasure.

This book is not for beginner knitters. I have created 2 of the patterns so far and find them very creative and reasonably realistic shapes. You will likely need pipe cleaners.
