Knitted Critters for Kids to Wear: More Than 40 Animal-Themed Accessories
Whether your little one is as cuddly as a kitten or prowls like a lion, you’ll find the perfect accessories here.
Jean Adel shares patterns for the cute creatures that have made her JEANADEL line at Barneys department store sell out season after season. The hats, mittens, and scarves can be made in three sizes (for children ages 3 to 7) and require basic knitting skills that Jean guides you through—as well as some slightly more advanced techniques (intarsia, knitting in the round) should you wish to challenge yourself further.
Finishing touches that give the wooly animals personality are as simple as a stitched mouth, some googly glued-on eyes, a pom-pom nose, or a few artfully placed buttons.
