MOUNTAIN GORILLA toy knitting pattern by Georgina Manvell
Mr Mountain Gorilla measures 23cm ( 9") tall when completed in DK yarn. He even has a proper opening and closing mouth!
This pattern first appeared in Home & Country magazine (WI) in April 1992. It was included in an article called Knit on the Wild Side ( Endangered Species) We have included a picture as featured in the original Home & Country magazine.
We decided that the Mountain Gorilla deserved a fresh look and so took a picture of the original Gorilla in Georginas area. 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 featured in the original) but the designer & myself have given it a new updated picture and format. Georgina & I ( Suzannah) now work together as designers with shared copyrights under the business name of The Old Toy Knitting Shop
