Farm Friends - Mini Animal Heads Knitting Kit

Knit your own set of mini farm friends - a pig, a donkey and a cow. These are my smallest of my faux taxidermy projects as they're knitted in DK yarn. The yarn is Rico's antipilling acrylic which is great to work with and has a lovely shine. The kit includes the materials to make all three heads. 

The pattern for the mini farm friends are in my book, 'The Knitter's Activity Book'. You can order the book as part of the kit, or order the kit without the book if you already have a copy.
