5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Book, 24 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Topsy-Turvy Inside-Out Knit Toys: Magical Two-in-One Reversible Toys for Knitters and Kids (Spiral-bound)
I usually steer clear of knitting toys because they tend to be very fiddly, with lots of separate pieces to sew together, but the genius of this book is that Susan Anderson has devised patterns that are virtually seamless. Her designs are so imaginative, and the way in which each piece morphs into something completely different (egg to penguin, chrysalis to butterfly etc) will be very intriguing and appealing to little kids.

The topsy-turvy doll was the one that particularly caught my eye, and I've made it as a Christmas gift for little Martha (shh, don't tell Martha). I think it is seriously cute, even though one of my friends thought it was one of those dolls people use as loo roll holders! Although the yarn recommendations are inevitably American, it is easy to substitute UK equivalents, as gauge isn't a particular issue. Instead of Quince & Co Lark I used Jarol Heritage DK for the doll, and it worked really well.

I'd heartily recommend this book for anyone looking for interesting but relatively non-fiddly knitted toy patterns.
