There are so many cute projects out there for knit animals. Whether teddy bears, fanciful bunnies or sweet little monsters that only exist in wooly forms, knitting critters is an irresistible pastime, whether you're knitting for kids or animal-loving adults.
The projects in Laura Long's Knitted Toy Travels add to the cuteness with a cute story attached. Ed the Explorer is going around the world to meet the animals, and each one has a little story and poem to go with it. This doesn't make the patterns any sweeter, but it is nice because it gives you a way to spend more time with the book beyond just knitting the patterns.
Here you'll find a panda, zebra, polar bear, kangaroo and baby, meerkat and baby, parrot and more. They're all really adorable and extremely knittable. I'm sure you'll agree.
