Adorable Knitted Animals: Cute Stuffed Toys to Knit the Japanese Way
Sweet and soft animal friends made with popular Japanese knitting techniques.
This collection contains 25 charming, cuddly toys full of personality including everything from favorite pets to zoo animals. These sweet companions make the perfect gift for newborns, grandchildren, and animal lovers alike. While some fit in the palm of your hand, the largest is the huggable size of 16" (40 cm).
The knit animal projects in this book include Beatrix the Rabbit, William the Penguin, Mimi the Japanese Dormouse, Winston the Sloth, Frannie the Doe, Harry the Hedgehog, and many more!
Each animal is knit in parts and then felted and sewn together. Detailed instructions and photos guide you through the key steps of construction, while a set of steps for executing specific stitches simplifies the process. Clear explanations of the knitting charts and symbols help you learn the basics of Japanese-style knitting. Projects should be knit with natural fibers that can be felted to achieve that perfectly cozy feel.
In creating these cute critters, author Hiroko Ibuki pored over the details of each animal — striving to make them cute, while also capturing their unique characteristics.
