Jean Greenhowe Patterns
Having mastered the basics of knitting, such as with basic clothes like socks , scarves, hats and mittens, all knitters will want to push themselves further. A great way to do this is through toys and caricatures. A great supplier of these is Jean Greenhowe, with knitting pattern books celebrating seasonal events and special occasions.
What sets Jean Greenhowe pattern books apart from other brands is that each pattern is designed exclusively by Jean Greehowe herself. Designing and publishing the books for over 25 years, Jean has been involved in the world of knitting since the 1960s. As a result, the knitted dolls and toys have an air of quality which echoes the experience in the work.
A great collection of designs can be found in the Jean Greenhowe's Knitted Animals Pattern Book. Containing a number of wonderful soft toys, it is possible to make fun characters out of farmyard animals such as a ducks and chicks. It is an excellent example of the quality of Jean Greenhowe knitting pattern books.
The quality of Jean Greenhowe pattern books continues with the Donuts Delights book. With fun and witty donut knit designs to create, along with more duckling and other funny dolls, this is a delightful collection which would make a wonderful Easter treat.
Popular particularly at holiday times of the year, Jean Greenhowe knitting pattern books which celebrate the seasons are excellent. This is perfectly demonstrated with the Christmas Special and Christmas Treasures books. Full of fun figures, including Santa Claus and Mrs Claus, they would both make wonderful tree presents for friends who knit.
Other great Jean Greenhowe pattern books to look out for include the Scarecrow Family, Knitted Clowns and Jiffyknits. All collections are great though, and here at Black Sheep Wools, they are available at an unbeatable price.
