If you buy this pattern, you get the ENGLISH VERSION ONLY! The penguin and the husky are NOT included!

Of course Akiak the walrus does not need a knitted sweater – his fat protects him well from the icy cold north of the polar circle. But then, even a walrus knows a little bit about vanity. Every time he sees his reflection in the water, he is pretty proud of his looks.
By the way – Akiak is very popular with the walrus ladies …

The pattern will lead you step-by-step through the knitting and sewing, including loads of detail photos and charts. Additionally, you’ll find instructions for the more elaborate techniques used. Akiak is rather big: He measures approximately 45 cm = 18 inches from head to tail fins.

This pattern was first published in my book “Steffis wunderbare Tierwelt”, which literally means “Steffi’s wonderful Animal Kingdom”. There is only a German version of the book available so far, and I don’t believe there will ever be an English version of the book (alas, I hope I’m wrong!), so I will translate some of the animals and publish the pattern on ravelry.
Have fun knitting your personal walrus,
yours Steffi
