Adventure Knitting 3: A Trip to the Zoo
Short Description: Choose each element of your zoo knitting adventure - make different kinds of hats, cowls, and mitts, all in custom sizes, and any weight yarn. There are 31 different stitch patterns total: 5 base patterns which each have several optional motif patterns to choose from, to be mixed and matched with any items. All items are worked flat, with choices for working different shapes/styles, and working either straight or diagonally. Hats and the rounded cowl are shaped with short rows.
Gauge: any gauge
Finished Measurements: any sizes
Materials Used: any type of yarn(s), most items take 1-2 skeins worth; most patterns use 1 main color, one base stitch pattern uses 2 colors
Needle Size: needles sized to match yarn weight; all items are worked flat
Pattern Includes: mix and match patterns for 5 items (mitts, smooth hat, pointed hat, standard cowl, rounded cowl), 31 stitch patterns written and charted (the item patterns are written), thorough notes for making the different things with lots of options, custom fit in any gauge; photos of all the stitch patterns
Skill Level: intermediate and up - the stitch patterns range in difficulty level (some are very easy); the construction is fairly simple for most items, but you’ll need to have some knitting experience to understand how it all works together, as you’ll follow the item instructions and the stitch patterns at the same time (sometimes working 2 stitch patterns within the same part)
Other Details: This is a paperback book, 8.25 x 5.25 inches and 36 pages. With all the options mixed and matched with each other, this collection can potentially make hundreds of different items; thousands, really, taking into account that any item can be made with any weight yarn. This is the kind of book that can be used over and over again, as a stash-buster, gift maker, a way to learn new techniques, and just a generally fun way to knit custom items!
