60 Quick Knit­ted Toys

Creative Knitting - - BOOK REVIEWS -

By Sixth&Spring Books (Sixth&Spring Books, 184 pages, $17.95)

If you are look­ing for adorable toys to knit, look no fur­ther. Here you’ll find stuffed an­i­mals with tons of per­son­al­ity, pup­pets, rat­tles, dolls, balls and more. There’s a knit­ted cas­tle, Life-Size Lucy, who is 38 inches tall, and a fish­ing game play set.

All the projects are made in Cas­cade Yarns 220 Su­per­wash, a clas­sic wool yarn that comes in an over­whelm­ing num­ber of col­ors and a va­ri­ety of weights: sport, worsted and aran. All three weights of yarn are used in the book. Although us­ing the spec­i­fied yarn is al­ways ideal, you can eas­ily sub­sti­tute an­other yarn for most of the projects.

With 60 cute pat­terns (and they are cute, ev­ery one of them), this is a great value. At the cover price of $17.95, you are pay­ing just 30 cents per pat­tern for a great toy-knit­ting re­source. Just re­mem­ber, no one says you have to have a kid to knit a toy!
