Best in Show – Knitting Pattern Books

BEST IN SHOW is a series of knitting pattern books inspired by our love of animals, especially dogs.

Our aim is to make the animals as life like as possible within the realms of knitting, whilst conveying much of the animal’s character.

We have written seven books so far, the sixth one KNIT YOUR OWN FARM was published in November 2014. Our new exciting project is to write an illustrated children’s book, Patch’s Grand Dog Show, featuring our knitted dogs.

The books are published in the United Kingdom, USA and Canada, as well as various European countries.
