Denise Kitchin was commissioned to knit the farm as a promotion for the Fibrecrafts outlet in Dartington (now closed) and the book flew off the shelves. This popular and successful book, which contains a collection of patterns designed to create a whole farm, has now been reprinted.
Nearly 30 years on, the knitted farmyard still exists and continues to be played with by members of the Bowers’ family.
