Giant Animal Heads

Giant Ram Head Knitting Kit

Make your own farm friend with my ram head knitting kit. This project is a great introduction to faux taxidermy as it uses basic knitting techniques, like knitting, purling, increasing and decreasing. There's no colour changing, and this pattern uses stitch markers to help place the ram’s features.

You can mix and match the colours that you'd like for your ram's face and horns, to create your perfect knit.
