FANTASTIC little book with easy but effective patterns. I LOVE the banana that zips open, the sparkly little blackberries, the very convincing pineapple and the fact there's not just an apple pattern but one for the core too! makes you want to get knitting!
this book is like her others fab! I knitted 2 apples first evening and they are great!..as fast as I knit one thing I cant wait to knit next,uses small amounts off wool so cheap to do and fantastic end results..even if my family think I have gone mad knitting heaps of food!
Already have her Tasty Knits book and wanted to make some different fruit. Am not disappointed. The patterns are suitable for beginners but also interesting more experienced knitters. I am knitting play fruit for children, have already knitted the strawberries and grapes. Because they need only a small amount of wool the patterns use up all of the odds and ends in my knitting bag.
I saw my sisters copy of this book and wanted a copy of my own. Its a great little book with most of the designs easily recognisable. So far I've only made the strawberries for our works charity, they only take minutes to knit, though I've adapted the leaves and stem as they looked a bit too big on the strawberries Definitely be a well used book!
I bought this for my mum, out of sheer desperation. I wanted some play food for work and decided this was my only option. I've yet to see the finished results, but my mother, (a life long knitter), has loved making them. The patterns are easy to follow and the end result match the pictures. So, on that basis, I would recommend the book!
