With imagination and flair, Fiona McDonald shows you how to knit ten fantastical fairies in two different sizes, all with their own character and style. They include a scary gothic fairy, an enigmatic moon fairy, a cool ice fairy and even Oberon, the king of the fairies himself. Using a basic body pattern, each fairy is dressed in its own costume, complete with wands, wings and various embellishments in a range of yarns and other embelllishments - ideal for using up scraps and oddments from your knitting basket! The dolls make wonderful gifts for both adults and older children, though they are not suitable for very young children, and can be easily adapted to match your friend's or relative's personality or lifestyle. This is a source of ideas and inspiration for knitters of all abilities, and a book to be treasured by young and old alike.
