5.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners 27 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book together with the other 'knitting pets' book for my sister's birthday.
We are both beginners and haven't yet mastered the art of knitting in the round...
She was really pleased with this book because all the little pets are knitted in the flat, and then stitched together, so it's a good starting point.
She did the little white dog featured in the cover and found the pattern slightly confusing but doable.
The patterns are varied and you get a white dog, some cute reindeers, meerkats, elfs and a few nice dolls and a selection of classic teddy bears at the back.
Most items measure about 30 to 40 cm, so quite large (the little dog is one of the smallest at 20 cm).
Overall, very good purchase, and more practical/ easier than the other book for a first timer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful book with lots of little surprises... 10 Aug 2010
This is a truly delightful book..every character is lovely - and there are some gorgeous little surprises, like the little reindeer.

This will appeal to knitters of all ages, as it contains some more traditional toys as well as modern favourites like the meerkats.

Great value too...lots of patterns for the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book! 27 Nov 2011
This is a really lovely book which I treated myself to, with the idea of using up all my odd balls of wool (it's working out very well!) The book has a wonderful and varied selection of small knitted toys created by Sandra Polley. Some of these are for children, whilst others would be suitable for collectors. My favourites so far are the dog in the basket shown on the cover, the reindeer, the little bears and the more modern meerkat, but I hope to knit many others this winter, and I'm sure each new creation will turn out to be a favourite! I would recommend this book to knitters of all abilities as there is something suitable for all inside it's pages. A great collection of patterns for the price, would cost a lot more if each was bought separately.
