Faux Taxidermy Knits offers you 15 fabulously quirky and fun knitting patterns that tap into the massive trend for taxidermy inspired craft projects with an ironic twist!
Split into two sections, wearables and habitat, this unique book includes knitting patterns from moose and badger wall hangings and tiger rugs, to fox stoles and claw mittens for the modern, young knitter looking for something very different and new to create. The style of the book is very contemporary and fun with modern-retro photography to compliment the quirky nature of the projects. Lousie Walker is a young up and coming UK designer, professional knitter and blogger at www.sincerelylouise.blogspot.co.uk.
