Faux Taxidermy Knits: 15 Wild Animal Knitting Patterns
Faux taxidermy is the hottest trend in craft and now you can knit your own animal heads and tiger rugs without any animals being injured! This fun and contemporary debut book from knitting fanatic, Louise Walker, teaches you how to make your very own wild knits with an ironic twist. Faux Taxidermy Knits is packed full of 15 projects of wild and woolly animals to knit. Split into two sections - wearables and habitat - this book includes knitting patterns from mounted animal heads and rugs to stoles and mittens for the modern, young knitter looking for something different and new to make.
