Author(s): Sally Muir
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 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
