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.
