Kathrynn Polfer February 22nd, 2012

The sheep is adorable

Robin February 23rd, 2012

I love roosters and chickens!

Kristin Mars February 23rd, 2012

Although I collect pigs, and feel somewhat of a traitor for not choosing the pig – the cow is just too adorable not to be featured on the cover!

Megan February 23rd, 2012

Donkey all the way!

Jennifer Somerset February 23rd, 2012

Totally cute!

Elaine Gross February 23rd, 2012

All of the animals are adorable but there something ultra-cute about the cow.

Sara Denbo February 23rd, 2012

All of the animals are adorable, but showing the momma chicken, the babies and the egg on the cover, will really get the knitter’s attention. Lots of projects in just one picture! How cute!

LP Starr February 23rd, 2012

Cow or checken… a hard choice

Becky Haase February 23rd, 2012

I love the chickens. They immediately brought a smile to my face.

Becky Haase February 23rd, 2012

I love the chicken It makes me smile

Ashley Hisson February 23rd, 2012

Looks like a cute book.

Melissa February 23rd, 2012

Sheep is cute! Wish there was a llama or alpaca option!

Pauline February 23rd, 2012

The chicken with her baby chicks and egg is my choice, it is different and stands out more.

mandy whalen February 23rd, 2012

Chickens are great.

Victoria February 23rd, 2012

Too cute. It’s between the cow and the pig for me.

cgorga February 23rd, 2012

Thanks for all your votes! The poll is running through March so be sure to share with your friends.

May the cutest knitted farm animal win!

Jan February 23rd, 2012

How could you not love the cow?

Kitty February 23rd, 2012


Cassia February 23rd, 2012

This was hard! We have sheep and want chickens and both of the knitted animals were so cute. All of them are, but I’m partial to the sheep and chickens. :)

Kelly Paquet February 23rd, 2012

I like all of them, but the chickens are cute, and a lot of people are into raising their own chickens in their backyards now. Chickens would probably catch a lot of interest!

Janet Oberfoell February 23rd, 2012

I love that little pink pig! Can’t wait for the book because I’m going to make him!

Ruth February 23rd, 2012

Although I am a collector of sheep ….I just love the hen & chick….cute.

Elva Roberts February 23rd, 2012

I really like them all but to pick one, I would choose the cow.

Jackie February 23rd, 2012

They are all so cute, hard to pick one. I just love the donkey.

penney February 23rd, 2012

I really liked them all, but there are so many patterns around for 4-footed furry beasts that I think the hen and chicks would be more of an eye-catcher!

Kerstin Grün February 23rd, 2012

I look forward to the book and vote for the sheep

lisha hunter February 23rd, 2012

I pick the chicken.
It’s very cute and it is artistically appealing because red is the complementary to green.

Deborah Greymoon February 23rd, 2012

Since they are knitted and since none of those other animals contribute to the ability to knit anything, I have to vote for the sheep!

Shell ~ February 23rd, 2012

~ I choose the Mama Hen & chick for the cover. I hope there’s a knitted llama, alpaca or goat in the book too !

Victoria M. February 24th, 2012

The Chicken and Chick get my vote. Having them poised together makes the eye take a double look.

Susan Johnson February 24th, 2012

Cluck, cluck…it’s got to be the chickens. Usually they are in the background, but bring them to the front…let the chickens rule. By the way, did i tell you I like the chicken…hahaha!!!

Suzanne February 24th, 2012

the donkey

Ronnie February 24th, 2012

I loved the chicken, but picked the pig.

Sharon February 25th, 2012

For yarn crafters it would have to be the sheep. How could we resist?

Angie February 26th, 2012

I love the donkey! I should get a free copy as it comes out on my birthday! Can’t wait! My needles are ready to clack away!

Barbara February 27th, 2012

Love the chicken “family”.

Hennie March 4th, 2012

With a username like mine, it had to be the hennie sorry chicken xxx

amy March 5th, 2012


Tami March 10th, 2012

Team Sheep!

Kaitlyn March 10th, 2012

The chicken and the cute chick would def make me want to open this book up and check out the other adorable patterns!

Texstitch March 11th, 2012

All are adorable, but the donkey is a bit different that what is typically seen. Love them all, and looking forward to the book!

Linda March 11th, 2012


Deb March 11th, 2012

I love the cow so mooooo…ch that he or she must be on the cover. Thanks for giving me a choice to pick an animal possibly!

Elaine Robinowich March 12th, 2012

I love the cow but the chicken/hen is cute too.

Susan Koontz March 13th, 2012

As you can see from all the various comments, it is just too difficult to pick one. I say make smaller pics and put them ALL on the cover.Then all will be happy!!

Pi@ Knudsen March 14th, 2012

The Cow is so cute – so I voted for the cow

sharon March 16th, 2012

the donkey is cute and different

Melissa March 20th, 2012

That cow has attitude! LOVE HIM!

Laura B. March 21st, 2012

I think they’re all adorable, but the chicken and the yarn colours are much more eye catching for a book cover. I definitely vote for the knit chicken :)

Caroline March 24th, 2012

Vote Donkey!!

Lynne March 27th, 2012

I voted for the cow – but sure wish there had been (and maybe there is in the book) an Alpaca to vote for – hands down that would have been the best!!!!

Dodi March 31st, 2012

I love the donkey!!!
