Felix and his Knitted Farmyard

How to knit your own farm and animalsWhen this charming book The Knitted Farmyard, written by Hannelore Wernhard was first published, the business Fibrecrafts (now George Weil) was still in its infancy.

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.
