Knitted Pelts

Craft & Design Home Yarncraft

I just finished a series of knitted pelts, made from all animal-free materials (cotton, acrylic, wooden frames, etc.). I look up images of particular animal pelts (the one above is a squirrel) and hand-knit the shapes before mounting. They’ll be on display at the ASU sculpture show, Flirting with Disaster, this Friday at Bragg’s Pie Factory in downtown Phoenix.

    Great work Becky. It reminds me of those knitted snake skins in the Subversive Knitting show.
