This book is good fun. It has straightforward patterns but these are only part of the book's appeal. The poem and illustrations are lovely.

I bought this book as I love this poem and have collected many different versions of it over the years. When I saw this book, I was very excited and ordered it immediately. It arrived very quickly and I was so pleased with it. The patterns are easy to follow, with professional results and Fiona's quirky style. The book itself is delightful and I am working my way through it so that when I read it I will have the characters to bring it to life. I have already made the chubby and slightly tipsy Father Christmas and have just started on Mamma. I have absolutely no complaints - only a request: Fiona, if you ever read this, do you think you could add a mouse to the collection?! Thanks!

I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!
I mainly crochet, but have just recently got back into knitting, the patterns are easy to follow and are fun to make up, all I did extra was put pipe cleaners into the arms and legs so they can sit on the shelves.
Currently making more as requested by my sister!!

A GREAT BUY!!!

I love the idea of making something like this to have when young children visit. Instructions are clear and the knitter can add his/her own ideas to personalize it. The book is lovely, well illustrated, clear instructions and the story all there to accompany the dolls.

What a lovely book this is, the story to be told and the knitted characters, i've only knitted the teddy so far but he's turned out perfect, the pattern was easy to follow.

It is worth the money for the pattern of the reindeer alone. Enjoyed making all the pieces especially the mini presents.

I have looked forward to this book since ordereing it in June. It arrived today and the pattterns are so very disappointing!.There is nothing new or unusual,just basic figures and not very Christmassy at that. The book itself is beautifully presented with lovely pictures and a 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' theme running through it. Hard backed and beautifully illustrated but sadly for beginners or older children.It would make an excellent present for a child with a birthday leading up to Christmas.Certainly not for me!!!It is the first book I have ever returned to Amazon that is how strongly I feel about it as I know I would never use the patterns.

Honestly, the patterns in this book are hideous. Talk about a load of misfit Christmas characters. The book looks lovely with the poem threaded through it but don't buy it if you want to knit some cute Christmas toys - they are a disaster.

I loved this book as soon as I opened it , I plan to knit everything in the book ,then when I have finished I will read the story to my twe pr-school grandchildren and they will have all the figures from the story so they can take part.
I love the idea of this book and the patterns seem easy enough to follow, the reigndeer are so cute I will be knitting loads as my friend saw the book and asked me to knit some and santa for around her christmas tree.
Would definetly recommend this book as it is a fun easy knit with a great story.
