Knitted Animals: Not as Hard as You think!
Here is the little lamb I made for my seven year old's birthday this summer-the instructions were easy to follow and I got them from Freya Jaffke's book above. I used a mixture of silk yarn with cream mohair, and by using the garter stitch I created a delightfully bushy lamb look. My son loved it and now my older children are knitting their own. My daughter says it looks more like a polar bear-so call it what you want, LOL. This is a great and easy project and makes a nice gift. My friend Linda Dawkins has an etsy shop and makes and sells these animals-if you would still like one but not quite ready to make one your self. Please visit Linda's shop to see all the wonderful animals and knitted crafts she has to offer:
