More About the Author

Hello readers, my name is Claire Garland and I am an author of knitting books and knitting patterns.
I have written several bestselling knitting books with publishers including FW Media, Avova Books Group, Octopus Publishing & MQ Publications.
I live with my husband and three children in a pretty stone cottage in rural Cornwall where I knit and crochet and sell and showcase my patterns worldwide via my blog, Etsy and Ravelry - I also find time (perhaps too much time!) to be inspired by my favourite site Pinterest, other folks' blogs and the many glorious books available today. - My vice - book buying - my latest as I write this; Sibella Court's Gypsy and What Katie Ate by Katie Quinn Davies.

I am a huge fan of Claire's work (see her Knitted Babes and Embroidered Treasures) and her latest book doesn't disappoint. The toys in this book are original and just absolutely wonderful. Some are tiny and quick - little fishes and crabs - while others are larger such as the unicorn and horse. There is also a mix of crochet and knitting which is nice. Claire has a wonderful talent and if you want to make something to be treasured buy this book - you won't be disappointed.

Another widely appealing book, I'm glad she doesn't bring them out too often as I don't have time to knit them all!
She has a simplistic genius to her planning that allows you to adapt the patterns to suit the individual child but for those who are sticklers for the illustrations the wool can sometimes be hard to track down althoguh I find ebay is good.
I love the ranges in this book such as princesses and mermaids that create a whole group of toys to play with but what ec=xcite dme was the pirates and cowboys as I ahve a really girly girl and I'd like to amke soemthign that isn't a pastel shade!
Well done Claire and I can't wait for the next one!

Format: Paperback
I absolutely love this book. The photography is excellent and really whets your appetite to get knitting and crocheting. I have so far made mermaids, pirates and fish and found the patterns easy to follow. The results are excellent. This is definitely not one of the pattern books where you end up with something that doesn't even look approximately like the picture in the book. I can't wait to try my hand at the unicorn/horse pattern. Highly recommended.
