Most small children love to visit a working farm. This touching and amusing look at a day in the (knitted) farming life comes in woolly form, introducing a full cast of characters, from Anna and Frank, who hold the show together, to Bess the collie, who runs rings around the sheep.
Sweet storybook pages pinpointing special moments in the working day are interleaved with simple instructions for knitting the whole farm, from cows and sheep to pigs and hens - and not forgetting the farm's horse, a fabulously squidgy woollen tractor and a play mat that can serve as anything from an action play setting during the day to a comfort blanket at night.
All of the characters can be made with basic knitting skills, and you'll find that, once you've begun, you'll want to complete the whole line-up, creating a set that will offer years of traditional and refreshingly wholesome play.
