Jean Greenhowe's Knitted Clowns (24 pages)

Here comes The Red Nose Gang - the most comical chuckle of colourful Clowns you will ever meet!

These figures are exceptional works of knitted art. They are free-standing and measure an impressive 48cm (19in) in height. The detail in all five Clowns is truly outstanding.

But the most amazing thing about the Clowns is that they are so easy to make. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly elaborate detail. Such is Jean’s talent for simplicity of construction that the Clowns can be made by anyone who can knit, purl, increase and decrease. These are the only skills required.

Just look at the instructions for the Basic Clown’s legs, body, head and hat shown below. As you can see, the instructions are mainly words, with very few lines of rows and stitches. Incredible isn’t it? You have probably knitted tea-cosies with more complicated patterns. And the rest of the Clown pieces and their accessories are just as simple.

Dolly Mixtures contains patterns for eight adorable dolls, two cute doggies and a tiny teddy known as Snuggles. The dolls average 23cm (9in) in height, doggies are about 6cm (2½in) and Snuggles is only 5cm (2in) tall.

With Jean's inimitable ability to create wondrous things from next-to-nothing, each doll can be made from around 70 grams (2½ ounces) of yarn oddments and 85 grams (3 ounces) of stuffing. For a very small outlay on materials, the end results are truly sweet little treasures.

Jean Greenhowe's Knitted Animals (20 pages)

Everyone loves soft toy animals but knitting patterns for such toys are often very complicated, requiring numerous pieces with awkward gussets and darts. But there are no such complications in Jean’s animals, just the easiest of shapings and stitches. All the designs are quite small and only require oddments of yarn.

Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Special (28 pages)

This booklet is packed with exciting seasonal designs, all guaranteed to set your needles clicking. Jean's classic Christmas Crib beautifully illustrates the story of the Nativity. The scene includes Baby Jesus in the manger, Mary and Joseph, The Three Wise Men, shepherds and sheep.

All the crib figures are extremely easy to knit. The basis for each standing figure is a tube-shaped piece of knitting and when the sleeves and other garments are added, the end result is perfection.

Mary is a superbly designed seated figure, requiring only two basic knitted pieces - one for the skirt and one for the bodice and head. When you knit this figure you will really appreciate the clever way in which it is constructed.The standing figures are 20cm (8in) in height and Mary measures 14cm (5½ in).

By popular demand Jean has also created a donkey for the crib, which is featured in Jean's other Christmas publication - Christmas Treasures.
