I have now made three of the patterns from the book and have nearly finished a fourth-a dog.
The rhino is satisfyingly fat with added wrinkle detail. He is two greys, with a darker grey for his underneath. The cleverest thing about this pattern was the way the horn is wrinkled up-by drawing the thread tight before adding the end of the horn.
The skull below is my first go at making my own pattern. It more or less worked, with some minor adjustments. I am going to try a pig next.
The skull I drew is from Greenwich market. It has interesting jagged rings around the base of the antlers. I am not sure what sort of deer it is.
The string on the floor is for the cats!
