July Knitting Zoo Patterns

by Meri McGraw and Tory Luick

This month, by land and by sea, we have Bruce the Shark and Mike the Monkey! Direct links to patterns below.

The Knitting Zoo would like to have some wonderful examples of animals

❖ Please feel free to knit (or crochet) any animal for the “zoo”, you  don’t have to follow the monthly “animal” and can use any pattern.

❖ Patterns we provide are free and will be posted on our website

❖ Bring your finished animals to any KG of the Desert meeting. You  will be registered for each animal you knit. There will be a special  prize drawing at the luncheon in March for anyone that has knitted  (or crocheted) an animal. 

❖ Animals should be at least 5” in size – no miniatures! 

❖ All animals will become property of KG of the Desert and will be  donated to a shelter (To be announced) after our luncheon in March.
