Toys to Knit
Adorable, soft and colourful – and just the right size for little hands – knitted toys are the ideal gift for children of all ages. The collection of wonderful knitted toys in this book – many of them complete with their own alternative outfits or additional accessories – will be a welcome addition to any child’s cuddly collection.
As well as imaginative dolls, traditional animals and a cute teddy, Tracy Chapman has included a selection of nursery toys for the very young child – a ball, blocks with intarsia lettering and a rattle with a bell, for example. The projects range from the simple to more complex, and utilize a wide variety of knitting skills. Each pattern is carefully explained, with clear charts and detailed instructions, so even the less-experienced knitter will find them easy to follow.
Whether you want an easily-made gift or a more complex knitting project to really get into, Tracy Chapman’s exciting new patterns will inspire you to pick up your needles and get started. Toys to Knit is the companion volume to the forthcoming Toys to Sew, which includes a range of desirable projects to stitch from author Claire Garland. (25,000 words.)
