This gorgeous little knitting book by a very popular author contains irresistibly cute toys for knitters of all abilities. All of the projects are accompanied by a clear, easy-to-follow pattern and fun photography. There also will be a page of basic techniques at the start of the book, including making up, stuffing and some simple surface stitching.
Sachiyo is overflowing with project ideas, ranging from a tiny rocket and a UFO, a soldier complete with bearskin, an angel, and lots of cute mini animals including a chubby bunny, a cat, an owl, a dog, a penguin, a bear and a sheep! All the projects are beautifully made and exquisitely designed, with some wonderfully quirky twists. All tiny enough to be clutched in a small hand, these projects are a delight and bursting with character.
