Book Description

Oct. 12 2010
Soft, cuddly, and totally wild!
Stuffed toys are great projects for beginners, but when you’ve grown bored with dolls and bears what do you knit next? How about a tiger, a warthog, or a moose? KNITTED WILD ANIMALS has a menagerie of soft, squeezable wild animal designs to inspire your knitting wild side. All of the toys feature an irresistibly pear-shaped body, realistic colors, and lots of fun details—a soft, curly mane for the lion, trunk wrinkles for the elephant, and a banana snack for the monkey.
With a primer on knitting basics to chapters on embroidering and stuffing your super cute safari softie, even a beginner can knit these cushy, cuddly creatures!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild about this book! Aug. 1 2011
By MirraD
I have made almost all of the animals in this book. I love it. It is alot of fun, and people love getting these critters as gifts. Great gifts for kids, and the kid at heart. Easy to follow patterns for all skill levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knitted Wild Animals Dec 12 2011
The animals in this book are the cutest I have seen and I have looked in a lot of books. They are a good size - around 9 inches tall which is perfect for a small child. The directions are easy to follow and anybody that has done simple knitting would be able to follow them. I have made quite a few and they have all turned out beyond my expectation. Would highly recommend this book to anybody that is looking for cute animals to knit.

I bought this book for the Hippo pattern, but now I want to make them all. And I have requests for some, from friends and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I hope it would produce March 17 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So far i have knitted the money, penguin and crocodile, and they look the same as the picture.
The instructions are easy to follow, no complicated instructions. Great for the novice knitter.
The yarn is also easy to find, in the stores. Not like some patterns that are really quite but you can never find the required yarn.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it looks Jan. 5 2011
By Twitchy - Published on Amazon.com
The enthusiasm for this book from the previous reviewers comes prior to their attempts to make these toys. The instuctions look very clear, but they are full of mistakes. Additionally, even with scrupulous attention to gauge, the pieces do not fit together well. As a knitter with more than 40 years of experience, it was easy for me to spot the mistakes and fix them, but a less experienced knitter is going to have trouble. Also, all of these patterns could have been made more easily and faster by knitting in the round, so if you don't want to spend as much time sewing as knitting, stick to Itty Bitty Knits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book ever for knitted animals Feb. 10 2011
By Love the Lake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to make animals for our new grandson to be's jungle themed nursery! WOW! they are wonderful. the animals are so realistic and adorable and very easy to whip up. the tiger came out amazing with the stripes and the elephant was just too cute for words. i also made the monkey...(holding the banana) and the lion. i've been knitting for more than 40 years and i disagree with the other reviewer who also is a long time knitter. i felt the instructions are very clear and very easy to follow. i did find two errors...perhaps a novice knitter might not realize them...but they were easily corrected by common sense and i'm sure a beginner knitter wouldn't have any problem with them.

i love the fact that the animal faces are in such detail. by this i mean the author has you knit the mouth and snout separately in many of the animals. this way those areas get stuffed separately and look so real. also...the nose is knit separately as well and sewn on. it is a little extra work but well worth it.

i also have itty bitty toys which i love as well, but there is something about these wild animals that were much more satisfying and much more realistic. i am so happy that i bought the book and can't wait to make the rest of the menagerie. i also hope that the author writes another book...perhaps barnyard animals.

these animals make amazing gifts. i gave the four animals i made to the mommy to be at the shower and she loved them...and everyone at the shower thought they were professionally done. i credit this to the patterns. wonderful job!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Errors in pattern and unclear directions Feb. 28 2011
By Sarah Parks - Published on Amazon.com
I have only (tried to) knit one pattern in this book, the monkey. The directions are incorrect. The muzzle for the monkey is not correct. There are increase/decrease rows which end with the wrong number of stitches. Others have found these same problems. The directions are unclear and are very unlike most knitting pattern directions. The website for corrections/errata for the book is not up and running. Very frustrating to have knit most of something and not be able to finish it without creating my own pattern. Do not purchase this book unless a new edition comes out with the corrected patterns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful patterns Nov. 6 2010
By Bethany Cerella - Published on Amazon.com
This book is full of technically beautiful patterns. The animals are bigger than you'd expect - stuffed animal size - and don't take long. Excellent, clear directions.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, fantastic pictures! Nov. 30 2010
By slbuncg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The directions for the knitted animals are quite clear, and thanks to the phenomenal photography, the illustrations are especially helpful. There are multiple close-up views of each project -- each animal is so cute -- the biggest problem is trying to decide which one to make first!
