I have always loved knitting, my mom taught me to knit when I was 5 years old. I live in South Africa with my wonderful husband and our four children. We have a little suburban homestead where we grow veggies and fruit and live a sustainable lifestyle. We have a whole troop of chickens, rabbits, cats, birds, fish and a Labrador called Sandy. I love to create designs of animals. I look at their shape, watch their movement and then I can see a pattern of stitches forming before my eyes, its like magic! Have an inspired day.
This is a listing for a Rhino knitting pattern, his name is 'Thulani' which means 'peace' in the Zulu language.
This is a very special pattern, I have written this pattern as a means to try to help save the Rhino that are being brutally killed for their horns in this country by poachers. I will be donating $ 1.00 from each Rhino pattern sale to this organisation, http://www.stoprhinopoaching.com/ to try and make a difference, please visit the website for more details.
Thulani is knitted flat on 2 needles in stocking stitch in aran weight wool, the horns are knitted in the round with the magic loop or you can knit them on DPNs in the round. The eyes are needle felted on with fleece and a felting needle or you could sew them on with wool and a needle.
4.5 inches tall and 8 inches from tail to horn
The pattern is 17 pages long with plenty of photos to guide you.
Please note, this pattern is for personal use only, and not for resale, items knitted from this pattern may not be sold for commercial purposes, thank you.
