Format: Paperback
The book is wonderful, filled with lots of pictures and easy to follow descriptions/patterns. The dolls are varied and cover a wide array of possible zombie ideas (my favourite being the femme fatale) and there are plenty of clothes for them (I found adapting some of the clothes to make them longer/into skirts very easy). So far it seems that all the clothes fit all the dolls as I dressed my femme fatale in the vampire's waistcoat and adapted the policeman's trousers into a skirt. The materials are all cheap and can be found in your sewing basket and the dolls knit up in a few hours!

The only bad point is the velcro that fastens the body to the legs. I used very good quality velcro and sewed it in twice for durability and the body still doesn't sit properly on the legs. I ended up making a skirt for her to cover up the joint and am in the process of redesigning the body so that the legs aren't detachable. It doesn't look bad at all on the head joint as the head covers it.

Other than that this is a wonderful book that'll provide hours of fun :).

I saw this book and just had to have it! Very neat idea! I am an intermediate knitter and have made a couple of them with little to no trouble. My only complaints are that there needs to be a knit gauge for each piece or the book should tell what brand of yarn was used. I had one of my clothing items not fit after following the directions on what needle and yarn to use. I ended up making my own adjustment and that worked. It would have been easier had I had a knit gauge or known what yarn was used in the example. I also have found a couple errors in a couple of the patterns. However, being a semi-knowledgeable knitter I was able to catch them and adjust to correct the errors in the patterns. I also would have liked to see more pictures of the details for the faces. Other than that, great book! I will be making all the zombies and maybe even start creating my own now that the ideas are flowing.

There are no words for how awesome this is. From classic to Frankenstein’s monster, zombie cop to Dracula, and even a zombie with a pocket in his head for his brain, this book has patterns for every zombie plushie you could ever need. There are even instructions on how to ‘mash-up’ the patterns and create zombies of your own creation. Fancy a grave digger zombie with a brain pocket and a dress? Easy. You can even mash-up Frankenstein’s monster and Dracula which I think would be all kinds of awesome. This book’s not just for Halloween; I’m sure the lovers of Plants versus Zombies (to which I am mildly addicted) and the millions of zombie films would all appreciate their very own brain-eater!

I bought this book for my son who had just learnt to knit the instrutions were clear enough for him to understand and only knitting for a few hours at a time finished his first zombie in about 3 weeks.

It takes quite some time to put the parts together but well worth the time in doing so
for the more advanced knitter you will find that quite often it says to break the yarn and rejoin at the other end, when there is no need to just work across the row and count that row as the next, it works out the same.

I am able to make one of these in a week.
A nice book to have.

This book is brilliant, well written, very easy to follow and live the idea that you can mix and match the patterns to make new and unique monsters! Will be making everyone a monster for Christmas :-)

An excellent book for freakish knitters. I have made quite a few dolls and toys before so I would say I'm not a beginner but this book would be suitable for a novice. You need to know your basic stitches really, although it does have very good instructions and diagrams. The variety of dolls you can make from the basic patterns are endless and I have already come up with a couple of 'mash ups' of my own. The book has handy flaps for keeping your page, always good for time consuming projects where you have to put it down and come back to it. It doesn't say in the book but the end results would not be suitable for children due to beads/buttons and various other bits that are sewn on. But an excellent present for a big kid!
Whether you are buying for yourself or a freakish knitting friend you will be happy with your purchase!

I'm an experienced knitter so the Classic Zombie at the start of the book took me just a couple of days to complete. I've only had the book for about a week and have also completed Frankenstein's monster, Zombie Fatale and Dracula and have started knitting the Gravedigger.

They stand about 9 inches (23cm) tall when completed and the instructions are easy to follow, although I have found a couple of typos so far ... e.g. for the back of the Classic Zombie's jacket it says to work 22 rows in st st but it should only be 12 rows.

The safety information is shown on page 4 - these are definitely not suitable for children (besides, why should they have all the fun!)
Tension is 12 sts and 16 rows to 4cm square over st st on 3mm needles (UK)
Use yarn that has at least 20% wool because 100% acrylic stretches too much.
Don't overstuff them!
The hardest part so far has been sewing on the velcro fastenings ... but it's worth the effort for the satisfying sound when you rip your zombies apart.

Now ... if I could just get the words of the Monster Mash out of my head .........
