This charming book is all about cute, easy knits with a vintage feel. It includes knitting patterns for six different animal toysa rabbit, a kitten, a mouse, a puppy, a panda and a monkey, each approx. 8 inches (20cm) high, and all easy and quick to knit. Each will be accompanied by a mini knitted version of itself that can be stored away in the little shoulder bag or backpack that each toy carries.
There is also a wide range of patterns for the bags and outfits in which to dress the knitted toys. These will be a variety of knitted and simple hand-sewn garments, all one size, and all designed to fit every animal. The hand-sewn clothes are very simple and do not require a sewing machine. Careful instructions and full-size templates are provided, and there is a wide selection of knitted garments for those who do not want to sew. Outfits include pyjamas, outdoor clothes (coat, hat, scarf), summer dresses, party clothes and so on, with added accessories.
Readers are encouraged to use up scraps of yarn and fabric they already have for the clothes, re-using materials from a favorite item that's long since been worn out or out grown to make a 'keepsake' toy that has special significance.
