knitted farm animalsThe giveaway this week is another cute knitting book that does not involve garment knitting. Knitted Farm Animals (that’s a link to my review) is a collection of 15 little animals you might find in the barnyard, from pigs and sheep and chickens to less obvious choices like a llama and a turkey.

The projects are all either garter stitch or stockinette, so they’re pretty easy, though there is a lot of finishing to sew the pieces together and add the adorable details.

Just one copy of the book this week because my daughter has insisted she needs a llama so I need to keep my copy!

If you want to be in the running for this giveaway, leave a comment below before the end of the day Sunday (that’s March 3). Since last week’s was so fun, why don’t you tell me what animal you’d most like to knit (and why, if you have a reason).

Thanks and good luck!

  7. Solducky on February 25, 2013 5:42 pm

    We just got 3 backyard chickens and my daughters love them, so probably a chicken!

  8. Cheryl DeMunbrun on February 25, 2013 6:03 pm

    I love this! It would be so much fun to make these farm animal. The biggest problem would be deciding which one to make first.

  9. Viretta Gillespie on February 25, 2013 6:28 pm

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. Samantha on February 25, 2013 10:11 pm

    I don’t know if a goat is in there, but I can’t have a real one so I would love to make one. Or a cow, a cow for sure too.

  14. Liz on February 26, 2013 12:02 am

    I would knit pigs for my friends who have collections of them in china etc.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  15. MelodyJ on February 26, 2013 12:50 am

    I would like to knit a cow. Just because it’s cute.

  16. Andy on February 26, 2013 1:26 am

    I’m actually posting so I can give this book to my boyfriend! I crochet amigurumi, but he knits, so I’d love for him to make me a chicken cause it’s one of our pet names for each other. :P

  17. lyn lewis on February 26, 2013 1:42 am

    The chook looks cute and my grandson would adore her! Id have to make her a floral cotton vest mind you lol

  18. mrspao on February 26, 2013 1:51 am

    I would like to knit a chicken for my friend’s daughter. I spent many a happy hour at her house with Tikka, Masala and co.

  19. ning fathia on February 26, 2013 2:29 am

    I don’t know if it’s on the book, but I’d love to knit a mouse, mommy mouse and daughter mouse, because it’s my and my daughter’s chinese zodiac sign!

  20. Linda Rumsey on February 26, 2013 3:18 am

    Would have to be an alpaca, as I love knitting with alpaca yarn. Then maybe a rabbit knitted with angora, a cashmere knitted goat, …

  21. Nancy T on February 26, 2013 4:15 am

    I’d like to learn how to knit a llama!

  22. belleandrew on February 26, 2013 4:29 am

    I’m going to say cow because my best friend collects them and just found out her and her hubby are expecting their first baby..so a little cow would be the perfect welcoming toy :-):-)

  23. Kaju on February 26, 2013 4:43 am

    I love knitting toys. I always have small knitted items in my purse when I go on vacation. No body likes to hear a baby or a child cry. Once when I am one a plane with one I had a 3 inch small bunny i had made in my bag. From crying to helping a bunny hop with laughter and giggling. Instant gratification. I never travel without a few small gifts to ease the anxiety of the unknown.

  24. Angelica Longo Diepenbruck on February 26, 2013 4:59 am

    It would be great to have this book to knit farm animals for my little daughter, she is simply crazy about small animals.

  25. Wendy Hatton on February 26, 2013 5:06 am

    I’d love to see a goose pattern.

  26. Claire C on February 26, 2013 5:49 am

    As my brother has started keeping Ducks, Geese, Chickens and Bantams I think I would start with something completely different and start with a Pig or a Cow.

    It’s such a great book, I hope I can win this prize.

  27. Lynette Keith on February 26, 2013 5:58 am

    This is so adorable! My daughters started collecting yellow chicks and ducks in junior high and have kept growing their collections ever since. It’s something special between them and they are always getting and sending each other new ones when they find them. As soon as I saw this I sent them the pic and they love it. The oldest also knits and this is right up her alley. Thanks so much for the chance!

    PS when they were young, we lived in a small neighborhood and kept chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits and such. It was very unusual for our area and we loved learning about each of them and sharing them with classes in school. I wonder if that’s where their love began?

  28. Ann Devine on February 26, 2013 6:05 am

    I’ve seen the turkey; very cute! But I’d really like to knit the llama, maybe even a few of them so I could have a herd.

  29. Tracey on February 26, 2013 6:12 am

    I so want this book. A knit cow would be mooost excellent :)

  30. Sarah on February 26, 2013 6:37 am

    My two year old likes to act like a chicken. I would love to make her one.

  31. Aaltje on February 26, 2013 6:41 am

    When I was a little girl, 3 or 4 years old, my grandma knitted a horse for me. That was 60 years ago, time goes fast. Unfortunately I lost the horse. Therefore I would like to knit a horse, just for me.

  32. Teresa on February 26, 2013 6:52 am

    Hmm, well I need to knit the pig first because my daughter loves pigs, then the alpaca because my sister raises them, then the ewe because I love sheep . . . and then the cat for my other daughter . . .

  33. Marianna on February 26, 2013 6:56 am

    I live in WI– I would most definitely knit a cow!

  34. Mary Mac on February 26, 2013 7:04 am

    I have a small farm with cows so it would have to be cows.

  35. Susan on February 26, 2013 7:06 am

    We farm and my nephew is about to have his first baby, these would be great for him/her!

  36. Judith (from Israel) on February 26, 2013 7:09 am

    I’d most like to use my wool to knit a wooly sheep.

  37. jonquil on February 26, 2013 7:26 am

    A goat (I used to tsake care of my Grandmothers’)! However, my grandchildren would prefer chicks or rabbits.

  38. Sara on February 26, 2013 7:39 am

    These are adorable! I’d like to make the animals for my students. Maybe I can find a children’s book that coordinates. I love that chicken.

  39. Laurie Vulich on February 26, 2013 7:43 am

    Sooooo cute! I love the chickens or maybe a sheep or two to knit.

  40. Katie on February 26, 2013 7:49 am

    I would love this book. I have one for woodland animals and would love to make farm animals as well. I would likely start with a sheep.

  41. Mirja on February 26, 2013 7:52 am

    What a wonderful book! I would love to knit a pig for my son!

  42. DeeAnn S on February 26, 2013 8:04 am

    Looks like a very interesting book. I like the colors in a turkey so I’d start with that animal. Thanks.

  43. Carrie Thomas on February 26, 2013 8:13 am

    This mama loves llamas, but might have to make a pig for my daughter :)

  44. Ruth on February 26, 2013 8:25 am

  45. Linda Day on February 26, 2013 8:31 am

  46. Pam on February 26, 2013 8:39 am

    a pig…for my daughter as she adores pigs :)

  47. Anne Marie on February 26, 2013 8:56 am

    I never saw a purple cow; I hope I never see one; but I can tell you anyhow; I’d rather see than be one! I love the purple cow!

  48. Merry on February 26, 2013 9:07 am

    The chickens are adorable. I have a friend who has a chicken so it could be for her. : )

  49. Rose S. on February 26, 2013 9:07 am

    The first animal I would have to make would be the Highland Bull for my husband. He was born in Scotland and we both love Highland ‘coos’.

  50. Jane S. on February 26, 2013 9:18 am

    I have a daughter who raises pigs for 4H, so I’d want to knit a little piggy for her!

  51. Dianne V on February 26, 2013 9:26 am

    I would love this book…I just started raising chickens and would surely make them.

  52. Hetty on February 26, 2013 9:30 am

    I would love to knit all of them but if you want me to pick one: the sheep is my favorite!

  53. Regina on February 26, 2013 9:59 am

    A llama, definitely. :)

  54. Kelly on February 26, 2013 10:59 am

    I would love to make the chicks in purple & pink and maybe alittle bit of both including the cow in brownish white with a bit of green. My new nephew who just turned 1 in January 2013 would like to see all these animals.

  55. Karey on February 26, 2013 11:33 am

    I would love to knit some sheep or maybe a cow! :)

  56. Andrea B on February 26, 2013 11:36 am

  60. Jessica on February 26, 2013 1:03 pm

    My daughter says she wants me to knit her a unicorn! Maybe I could add a horn to a horse. :) I’m sure she’d love any other animal also. Thanks for the giveaway!

  61. adrienne in moose jaw on February 26, 2013 1:12 pm

    Oh swoon! Luv, luv, luv it! Sheep would be the first animal (to add to my flock of sheep toys, handmade and purchased) followed by a llama (to start a new flock? herd? gaggle?).

    thanks for the very fun giveaway!

  62. Knitting Teresa on February 26, 2013 1:31 pm
