Book Description

Irresistibly cute and quirky mini knitted charms that take around 15 minutes to make.

Charms and dangles are popular fashion accessories, used to decorate purses, bags, mobile phones, and anything else you can think of. In this book, Sachiyo provides patterns for 20 different designs all in her distinctive, cute and fun style. All the projects are really quick and easy to make each one can be made in just 15 minutes! They are great for passing the time on a journey or when you have a few minutes to spare, and are small enough to carry around in your bag. They are ideal for using up scraps of yarn too, and they make perfect little gifts for family, friends and boy or girlfriends.

Choose from ice cream cones, beach huts, strawberries and mushrooms, as well as love hearts, owls, and stars, then pop it on a charm strap or even a suction cap to dangle in your car and your creation is complete!

I haven't had chance to try all the designs yet but the ones I? have tried have been easy to follow. Good clear pictures throughout the book. Would definitely recommend!


Penny Carver-Irvine

Well presented.  I am hoping to knit some of these patterns myself to use for pencil toppers and it's an ideal book for raising money for charities i.e selling the patterns you knit.


Carole Stephens

Pictures and layout of instructions are clear and concise.
The charms are cute and easy to sew up.
I have enjoyed knitting several for presents. i attatched the booties and mittens to the fronts of cards.
As they only use 4ply they are great for using up oddments of wool.
Well woth getting for the older or younger knitter!


Tracey Stanley

Another excellent offering from Sachiyo. This is my third one of her books and she still manages to deliver. This is excellent for this time of year for little extra gifts for people. This book would also make a nice gift.


Natasha Field

I am a big fan of Sachiyo Ishii's previous books, so I was pleased to get a copy of this one.

As with all other "Twenty to Make" series, this tends towards to the simpler side of her style, but is just as adorable as her work from 'Mini Knitted Woodland' et al. The instructions are clear and concise, and I particularly like the suggestions for ways to adapt the patterns to suit your own ideas. I have already made a couple of charms, which I have in fact added to my pile of Xmas tree decorations!

It's a fab addition ot the "Twenty to Make" series, and yet another fab book from Sachiyo Ishii.

A lovely book full of wonderful little patterns that cater to a wide variety of interests


Kim Williams

 This is a great little book for those that love to make small novelty items. The book has been well formatted and the pictures are large and clear. The patterns are easy to read and well laid out. One pattern on each page with the picture on the opposite page makes this so easy to use. Fully recommend.


Lesley Bambridge

This fab little book has the most delightful, quick, easy, and adorable little charms. The patterns are so clear to read, and full colour illustrations to guide you through, and to simply ooh and ahh over. There is a cute monkey, beach hut, little socks and bootees...and more - and a great pair of dice which I think would be perfect for the men.
It would make a perfect gift for any knitter - without breaking the bank. If you are knitting them for yourself, prepare to be completely addicted. I just can't decide which to start with first - but I am going to knit every one!
