    I’ve got five different animal patterns now. They are all easy to follow when knitting but making them up instructions need a bit more detail especially the unicorn. My grand children love them all.

    This was such a joy to knit. Very clear instructions and not too difficult. However i did find the lack of finished measurements off putting, ie no measurements for how round the head etc should be once stuffed. Apart from that no problems at all.

    Another great knitting pattern from knittingbypost. Pattern looks intricate but is so easy to knit & does not use a lot of wool. Very clear and easy to follow instructions. I highly recommend this.

    I loved this little guy the moment I saw him. It was very easy to knit and I love the stitch for the body, gives more texture being a sheep, much better than the usual stocking stitch. I’ll be making more of these. Buy it, you’ll love it!
