These figures are exceptional works of knitted art. They are free-standing and measure an impressive 13.5 in in height. The detail in all the family members is truly outstanding. But the most amazing thing about them is that they are so easy to make and can be made by anyone who can knit, purl, increase and decrease. These are the only skills required. This 20 page book from the 1980s is in very good condition with no tears, folds or notations, and contains patterns for 7 delightful scarecrows and all their accessories.
