Synopses & Reviews
A reissue of a popular and successful book, The Knitted Farmyard contains a collection of patterns designed to create a whole farm, including family figures, animals, buildings and fields. With drawings by Jan Messent and charming pictures of the farm and its occupants, you are shown how to make ducks, horses, sheep, hens, pigs, the farmer and his wife, a barn, ploughed fields, hayfields and much more. The base of the farm is the size of a small rug and would be ideal for a child's room. The quantities of materials needed for each piece are quite small, so you could use up leftover yarn, or whatever you have available. This book is fun, easy to follow and full of amusing, innovative ideas. Create something fantastic and knit the whole farmyard in different colours. There is plenty of scope for individual touches and extra accessories.
