Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne are back with a new title in the Best in Show series. This time they have turned back time and delved into the fascinating prehistoric world with a collection of new patterns for dinosaurs and other creatures. There are 12 prehistoric creatures to knit, the T-Rex and Stegosaurus are particularly fabulous. Beginners can attempt some of the easier designs, more experienced knitters may be more comfortable overall though. It's worth noting that these are not toys, as wire or pipe cleaners are used as framework, however they would certainly brighten or frighten the other occupants of a bedroom shelf. Written with humour and including some fun dinosaur facts, this would make a lovely stocking filler for Christmas. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Best in Show: Knit Your Own Dinosaur by Sally Muir, Joanna Osborne

There are twelve realistic knitting patterns for all the favourites, with a terrifying T-rex, a soaring Pterodactyl and a towering Woolly Mammoth. More obscure creatures include the turtle-like Archelon, and the tiny (but vicious) Velociraptor. Informative fact files and idiosyncratic descriptions of the various species accompany beautiful photography, making this book irresistible for both keen knitters and dinosaur enthusiasts. Word count: 20,000
