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".
the animals take time to knit because of all the detail...but believe me, they are worth the extra effort! (Please also see my review of Spud and Chloe at the Farm if you are thinking of knitting farm animals)
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.
This book has exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to start on the jungle animals :)
