Sweet and soft animal friends made with popular Japanese knitting techniques.

This collection of 25 cuddly toy animals includes everything from favorite pets to zoo animals. Made with soft materials and adorable expressions, 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 inches (40 cm).

The knitted 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 knitted 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.

'This book is appropriate for knitters experienced in making various types of stitches and following charts, and for crafters with good fine motor skills for assembling the animals. Each creature is a work of art and would be well worth the effort to create.' - Library Journal

'A wide range of techniques, stitches, and finishes ensures that each creature is unique and true to its real-world counterpart. With options for articulation and weights included, these are more than the average stuffed animals.' - Booklist
