I am a newbie knitter with many little people to knit for. I bought the book because the majority of the toys are very desirable, more so than other knitted toy books.

The biggest drawback with the book is that some of the patterns assume more knowledge than I have, and I had to refer to my mum/knit and knatter group for help. Also, some of the easy looking toys require you to figure out what to do from a grid diagram, and frankly I went a bit mental until I got the gist of how these work. So, the toys are lovely, look great when you've knitted them, but are a bit tricky for a newbie.... but then again if you don't challenge yourself, you'll never learn!

I'm a reasonable knitter and have to say I find the patterns are much harder than I expected & more challenging than making baby clothes. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the charts aren't numbered and there is very little in the way of guidance other than a list of abbreviations at the start. I relied on a knitting manual and lots of patience and have to say that once I'd mastered one pattern, all the rest seem to rely on similar techniques & got easier. Worth persevering for though as the toys are much more modern than in many books.

As the other reviewers have said this is a seriously difficult book to follow. Some of the patterns are little more than coloured squares, no line numbering, no indication of how to increase or decrease. You might just as well buy a squared pad and dooodle your own!

I was really looking forward to making some of these for my daughter, they do look adorable, but I'm minded just to throw the whole thing in the bin now and buy a book by someone who cared if I could actually make up their designs. Really disapointing.

All children would love these knitted toys and I have made several myself.
A good way to use up all your odd colours of yarn especially when making up the snake.

I loved the toys from this book, but i haven't tried making one yet. A friend of mine saw the book and she was also in love! :) i recommend it to whom seeks inspiration. I'll check how easy the patterns are ;)
