Jean Greenhowe Playful Puppies
Jean Greenhowe booklet Playful Puppies (20 pages)
Knitters who are familiar with Jeanâ€™s work are aware that she rarely designs animal creatures as they are in the real world. And here are her latest creations â€“ Playful Puppies. Ten adorable puppy knits, all dressed in fanciful costumes - not realistic, but lots of fun! The basic puppy measures 21cm [8Â¼ in] in height from the soles of the shoes to top of the head, not including the headwear.
Only 40 grams [1 1/2 ounces] of yarn oddments are required for each puppy and the same amount of stuffing. The heads, hands and ears are knitted in light cream or fawn shades, which complement their colourful outfits perfectly.
All the puppies are constructed in the same basic way. The legs, body and head are knitted in one piece. The shoes and arms are made next then the individual details are added for each character. We have no doubt that knitters will enjoy making Jeanâ€™s Playful Puppies, just as much as children will love them as playmates.
