"Charmingly photographed, in a volume sprinkled with fun facts (Did you know that the chicken is the closest living relative to the T-Rex?), this book is a charmer for those knitting for little kids." --KnitCircus.com

Very happy with the book. i already have this author's Knitted Wild Animals (see my review) and these farm animals are just as wonderful and very satisfying to complete. the animals are knitted with two needles rather than double pointed needles, but seaming isn't a problem and the rooster that i made came out beautifully. the instructions are easy to follow and very specific. i like that the author quite frequently gives you the number of stitches that should be on the needle as you knit along, so that you don't get too far and then realize you might have forgotten to add a stitch some where.

the photographs are close up and in detail and very helpful when determining the placement of wings, paws, eyes, etc. in the back of the book, the author also gives instructions on how to do the different techniques used in the book so that you don't have to go elsewhere to research a particular stitch if you are unfamiliar with it.

i did come across a slight problem while knitting the rooster and the duck. on the rooster, when shaping the tail, on row 6, it says to "cast off 21 sts at beg of next row"...it doesn't say to "continue to knit to the end". because the author is always so specific, for some reason, i didn't understand what to do next. The same thing happened on shaping the neck of the duck. On row 6...she leaves off "continue to knit to the end of the row". it's probably not an issue with most people, but for some reason, i didn't figure that out right away. Duh! (and I've been knitting for 40 years! Go figure!!)

other than that...i think the animals are adorable. the rooster is amazing...so much detail. i love him! The chicks that go with the hen are much cuter than the susan b. anderson chicks from "spud and chloe at the farm".

I love to knit and have six grandchildren. I was looking for some patterns farm related and I saw this book and I was so happy! The patterns are so cute and easy directions to follow. There is something for everyone in this book. They make great gifts for children or adults that admire farm animals. You won't be disappointed in this pattern book.

Sarah Keen has done it again. Another collection of beautiful toys each with their own character. There are some favourites in this book, the cat, the cow, and the dog in particular. I love them all! The toys are easy to construct, even a beginner would have little difficulty with most of them. A must have!

The colored photographs show these toys at their best. Any child or collector would be delighted to receive one of these as a gift.
The directions are clear and concise, and are easily adapted to any changes that you may wish to make. The first item I have made is the duck, which is almost complete, and I have made it considerably larger. I am pleased with the results of this pattern and look forward to trying the others. The duck will be dressed to resemble a female duck from a children's classic story, to join the other animals from the series of books by the same author.

These animals take a short time to make, are economical, and are almost goof proof.

These animals are extremely easy and fun to make. They knit up very quickly. As said in a previous review - when shaping the rooster's tail the instruction is to "cast off 21 sts at beg of next row." it should then state continue to knit to end of row. it does the same later when you cast of 21 purl wise - then you need to purl to the end of the row. For the most part I have stuck to the patterns but I did add a few extra rows in the horse's face to make it longer and made longer ears for the horse.

This book has exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to start on the jungle animals :)

I loved this book because I have never been able to crochet and so often sweet animal figures and crafts for children involve crochet and knitted things are plain and not very attractive. This book had all the appeal I needed and I can easily make the patterns. Very nice.

These animals are utterly charming. The instructions are very clear, except for the horse's mane (I wound up creating it with small pieces of yarn, like your would do in rug hooking - and I am a very experienced knitter.) Other than that I have enjoyed making these for the grandchildren of a very special friend. Ordinarily, I don't do "cute" but these designs have a lot of personality. They are a lot of work, but the methods kept me interested in a project I would not have ordinarily considered making. I recommend this book for the smitten grandmothers or moms-to-be. The projects all call for a sport weight yarn and I would suggest acrylic yarn so they can be cleaned if they are loved to death. The figures finish up about 7-8 inches high; the perfect size to take to bed.
