What you need to know

Your little ones will be clamouring for this snuggly nursery throw of exotic creatures. There are 12 panels, each with a different friendly animal, and each one created with everyday stitches, and simple increases and decreases. The background squares are all the same and bordered with moss stitch to help them lay flat, so you can knit them in a batch or as you go along. Part one begins with our easy rhino and cute panda, and you'll find the other parts appearing in issues 180-184.

    Zoe's vibrant blanket is such fun to make! It features lots of basic stitches like knit and purl, but also a touch of colourwork too.
