Knitivity: Create Your Own Knitted Nativity Scene by Fiona Goble
Knitivity heralds a fresh slant on the traditional nativity scene. Designed for people with all levels of knitting skill (each project is graded), it encourages all family members to contribute. A knitted Mary and Baby Jesus are designed with two options: choose which you like best or knit both so that you can change the scene. Patterns are also supplied for Joseph, Three Wise Men, Shepherds (with shepherd boy), Ass, Ox Sheep, Angel, and Star. All the figures are child-safe, and have modern, stylish designs, and there are paper templates for a charming stable and manger background. To make this so much more than just a knitting book, the story of each character is told alongside the knitting instructions, and the traditional Christmas narrative winds its way through the book alongside beautiful combinations of artwork and photography.
