Mini Knitted Safari.pdf
Knitters of all skill levels will love to make this charming, fun mini safari park scene. Sachiyo Ishii has created 27 delightful mini knitted creatures and a safari mat, arched gateway, four-by-four and camper van to complete the scene. It is easy to knit with one basic pattern and sewing up guide for most of the animals, and uses small amounts of readily available yarn. There are clear, simple knitting patterns and step by step photographs and instructions for all other techniques such as sewing up, stuffing and basic embroidery.
