Meerkats are appealing little creatures and their growing popularity over the last few years has elevated them to something approaching cult status! Now these cutest of creatures have been immortalised in yarn by Susan Stratford, who has created twenty fun and novel characters for you to knit. All of the meerkats in this book are based on the same easy-to-follow pattern, which is then transformed into a beach babe, rock star, bride, gardener, golfer, skier, to name just a few, by simply using different coloured yarns and dressing them in different knitted outfits. You will love these adorable little knitted animals - and so will anyone you choose to knit them for. Before you know it you'll be hooked, and well on the way to knitting an entire meerkat clan!
