Dec 13 Take one simple knitted body shape, add your pick of ears, arms, legs, tails and features, and what do you get? A whole menagerie of cute animals - 22 to be precise! There's a cat, an elephant, a pig, a lion, a sheep and many more, (not forgetting the unicorn!) and they're all bursting with personality. Close-up photos alongside the step-by-step instructions really help to illustrate the knitting techniques involved. Knitters of all abilities will really enjoy bringing these fun creatures to life, and they'll make sweet gifts for all ages, whether you make one or the whole set. * Knit Today * Apr 14 Children of all ages love a stuffed animal. Now you can knit your own with Caprice Birker and her book, "Cuddly Knitted Animals". What is your favorite animal? Is it a monkey, elephant, fox, unicorn, dragon with wings.... There are 22 different animals to choose from. One basic design is used and then the personalities are added. Most of the animals are knit in the round on double pointed needles (DPN) using sock yarn. For ease of knitting the animals, a row counter would be helpful. The little extras, like embroidering the face and art yarn accents, will provide the details. The animals are between 6" and 7" tall. The hands and feet are unique as some have thumbs, others fingers and still others a hoof. Why not experiment and knit your own animal. With a bit of wadding, you will have created your own cuddly animal. * Examiner.com *

I like the fact that this animals are not very big and I can use up all my leftover yarn from sock knitting. They also look like bought in a shop when you use a good quality yarn.
I can understand that some say the patterns are hard to understand. But I am German knitting after an English pattern and I managed.... You need to knit them, not just read the pattern. Then they make sense and you might find them pretty clever. And do not have your first attempt whilst watching telly....(as I did😯)
When you are new to knitting I would not recommend this book.... There are easier patterns out there.
