Experience the thrill of seeing the 'Big Five' by embarking on a safari of the knitted kind from the comfort of your armchair. Sarah Keen's latest book is packed full of fabulous safari animals to knit, as well as a jeep to take you on your imaginary adventure of a lifetime. Inside you will find 25 animals including elephants, lions, a rhino, leopard and buffalo as well as flamingos, chimps, a zebra, hippos and anteater.
The projects are fun, safe and washable. Choose your favourites or make them all and be able to entertain children for hours while they learn about these wonderful creatures. If you are a novice knitter, or simply need to brush up on your skills, you will find a Techniques section at the back of the book explaining everything you need to know to make the projects.
Sarah Keen is passionate about knitting, finding it relaxing and therapeutic. She discovered her love of the craft at a very early age – her mother taught her to knit when she was just four years old and by the age of nine she was making jackets and jumpers. Sarah now works as a freelance pattern designer and finds calculating rows and stitches challenging but fascinating. She is experienced in designing knitted toys for children and also enjoys writing patterns for charity. This is Sarah's ninth book for GMC Publications.
