As with all books written by Anna Hrachovec, "Huge and Huggable" has 20 great patterns that are very easy to both read and knit. The illustrations and explanations are especially clear. I would recommend the book to all levels of knitters; there really is something for everyone (basic knitting, cables, loop stitching etc.). The designs have a real charm and a look of their own, which ties-in with her other excellent books: each book adds another vibrant theme to Mochimochiland. I am really enjoying "Huge and Huggables", my personal favourite so far is the submarine (USS Bubbles). I also like the humorous texts that accompany the patterns, making this book not only a great pattern source, but also a great read in its own right. Rewarding knitting with a great sense of fun!

Anna Hrachovec does it again.
The patterns are easy to follow, the photo's are beautiful and the tips are really useful.
I have made many mochimochi using Anna's patterns and had fun with every one.
I have picked 3 patterns already that I want to make for my nephews and niece and even my husband picked out 2 patterns he likes.
If you enjoy knitting or making toys you really should check out this book.
