Format: Paperback
I have a couple of books of knitted toys now and without a doubt this is my favourite one. The projects are entirely charming and the book is full of wonderful pictures that integrate individual knitted toys into entire story scenarios. Laura Long sets her toy designs apart by adding beautiful felt and fabric appliques to her toys. It's a simple addition, but it really enhances the appeal of these projects. There are templates provided for all the appliques as well as some basic knitting instructions for beginners or for all of us who need occasional reminders about technique! Small hand drawn images combined with beautiful photography and short stories about the lives and personalities of each knit character make this book not just about knitting but about weaving tales. Even if you never knit a single thing out of this book it is a treat to browse and will provide lots of inspiration for enhancing other projects.

I really enjoy knitting toys, and the ones in this book are wonderful! I have made several of the projects with excellent results. They take a little knitting experience, but have good clear instructions and are very sought after by family be warned - the orders will be coming in!

Fun knitting for all ages Feb. 11 2010
By Joann M. Williams - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for all ages. There are things easy enough for a beginner and some more complicated. My ten year old granddaughter made the cat first. I'm sure we're going to enjoy making many more together. The really nice thing is most can be made from left over scraps of yarn we all seem to have plenty of.

adorable knitted toys April 24 2010
By Linda Potter - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Directions are correct and easily achievable for a moderately experienced knitter. The author gives detailed information on the yarns, i.e., what kind and where you might find the yarn. That is the only difficult aspect of the patterns. If you want to replicate the project exactly as it is shown it may be difficult to find the yarn. The patterns are fun to work on and the result is as shown in the picture. The animals are adorable. I have enjoyed the book as I have made several of the toys for my grandchildren and for baby and child gifts.

wonderful toys Feb. 16 2010
By sophia's mama - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful toy book - I have made mama bear, a mouse and a bunny and all turned out as shown. Easy directions. The only drawback is the finishing does not have very explicit directions - for instance mama bear just says to sew up the legs and attach. The toys are all beautiful and well shaped. A lovely book, much better than most out there.

Love this book May 19 2012
By Softwaremom - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have knitted many items from this book and I love it.
The first item was the pig and he turned out beautifully. I also
have knitted the bunnies.. they are beautiful. I loved knitting the
mom and the babies. I have also knitted the mice. They are great too.
I have used parts of the doll dress patterns to knit some other items.
I love the shaping that Laura Long puts in her books. I love her
simple instructions. For the ears of the pig instead of using
fabric, I knit them two sided in the round..(Sort of like knitting it twice)
I also did this for the bunnies. It turns out great.. and if you don't
have fabric it is easy to do. Definitely get this book... and
her other book "Knitted Toy Travels" is also great.
