Underground Crafter

From Underground Crafter:

Twenty to Knit: Tiny Christmas Toys to Knit by Sachiyo Ishii is a knitting pattern collection of 20 adorable little projects that measure from 2.25 (5.5 cm) through 7 (18 cm) in length. Sachiyo opens the book with an introduction where she shares her delight in making little Christmas toys for decoration and gifting. She mentions that the toys can easily be adjusted in size by using thicker or thinner yarns with appropriately sized needles. The samples in this book are primarily made in DK/light worsted/8-ply yarn (#3 or light yarn in the U.S.).

The book moves on to Knitting Know-How, which includes information about yarn, needles, and other tools; sewing pieces together; and basic knitting and embroidery stitches used in the projects. This section also includes a list of knitting abbreviations.

The next section is the patterns. Each pattern includes a materials list with yarns listed by color and meterage/yardage. The patterns do not listed a needle; however, in Knitting Know-How, the author mentions that all the samples are made with U.S. Size 2 (2.75 mm/U.K. Size 12) double pointed needles unless otherwise mentioned. Each pattern includes instructions for each piece written in pattern abbreviations and a To make up section with assembly instructions. The patterns also include a full page picture and at least one additional, smaller detail picture.

Tiny Christmas Toys to Knit assumes that you have knowledge of knitting basics, though there is some guidance on terminology (like the differences between garter and stockinette stitches) provided in the Knitting Know-How section. The book is small at about the size of a folded piece of letter paper, its very portable. Like the other books in this series, its designed to make it easy to knit on the go. If youre an advanced beginner or intermediate knitter and enjoy knitting toys and especially Christmas projects, you will find many cute projects included.
