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.

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”…
