Spring 2016

A small book, reasonably priced , with twenty patterns for charming tiny toys. The introduction suggests they are fun for new knitters; I note that you would need to be happy with increases, decreases and sewing up before tackling them. I have a box where short short odd ends of handspun yarn are collected and here is a book full of suitable patterns. Most toys are around five to eight centimetres in finished size, the tallest due to his ears, is a 9cm tall chubby bunny. All of the patterns in the book were knitted on double-pointed 2.75mm needles and require some sewing up and a small quanitity of stuffing. I tried out the Chubby Bunny pattern, it took a couple of short sessions to knit the pieces and another to assemble the parts. My bunny came out like the picture, a comic book type figure with a large head.


Debra Hall -TSS Reviews

Most of the patterns use stocking stitch. Use the needle sizes and yarn types as suggested so the knit is close, and so that there are no wide gaps in the knit. 20 teeny weeny little items measuring around 2 1/2 inches to 3 inches approx once completed. Knit cute little creatures: fish, owl, bunny. And objects: space ship, teddy bear, and a set of skittles. All these ideas are popular and fit with a variety of themes so ideal in any themed decoration and for gifts i.e party bags, or present toppers
