Animal Knits for Kids (Paperback)

Amanda Berry

-  

Animal Knits for Kids takes us on a journey around the zoo. Starting with a safari outfit to get baby ready for exploring, each chapter travels around the different zoo zones, from jungle animals to the reptile house to tropical seas in the aquarium, and on to the polar zone. Each chapter chooses a few animals from each zone to inspire baby clothing and other accessories. The bright colors of the knits will appeal to a baby, but also give the book "standout" appeal on the bookshelf amongst other baby knit titles, which tend to feature neutral or pastel tones. The patterns included are accessible to knitters of all abilities. The book has several cute knits that could be completed in aday or even an afternoon, as well as bigger projects for the more adventurous knitter. A range of skills and techniques are explored in each project, and the introduction gives guidance on these techniques to help the knitter along the way. Techniques include color work-from the knitted stripe through to intarsia-fairisle, and slip stitch color patterns. Finishing techniques include seaming and grafting live stitches. Projects include those knitted flat and worked in the round, and the introduction will give some guidance on getting started with knitting in the round, as well as the different needles for each technique. A basic tool kit, some notes on safety when knitting for young children, as well as abbreviations, conversion charts, and other handy hints are all included.
