toy knitting pattern by Georgina Manvell and Suzannah Holwell

This lovely knitting pattern is for Mr Gorilla.He measures 23cm (9 in) when completed in DK yarn. He even has a proper opening and closing mouth!! Gina particularly likes his nostrils

This pattern was first published in Hone & Country magazine in April 1992. It was included in an article called Knit On The Wild Side( Endangered Species). We have included a picture of the Gorilla as featured in Home & Country magazine. The original pattern included instructions for a baby Gorilla but we have decided to omit this from our new version pattern. Please see picture of part of the original article

We decided that the Mountain Gorilla deserved a fresh look and so took a picture of the original  Gorilla in Georgina’s garden. He still looks great doesn’t he!! This is exactly the same pattern as featured in Home & Country magazine(with the exception of the baby Gorilla) but Georgina and Suzannah have given it a new updated picture and format .

The pattern has been reformatted to an original design with very easy to read print. It is hot laminated and presented in a comb binder so will last for years.
