Mouche & Friends : Seamless Toys to Knit and LoveLaine
Mouche & Friends : Seamless Toys to Knit and Love is a delightful collection of 12 knitted toy animals, plus their garments and accessories. Cinthia Vallet's toy-making process is unique and totally seamless, and she walks you through the techniques step-by-step.
Cinthia brings her characters to life with little stories, creating a charming combination of knitting book and children's storybook.
The animals are worked in the round, starting from the nose and knitting down to the feet--growing a toy rather than building it. It is fascinating to see how these little creatures come alive while knitting!
The book is intended for knitters of all levels. Cinthia walks readers through the techniques step-by-step with clear, illustrated tutorials, which makes knitting easy and enjoyable. She also shares tips on working small circumferences, choosing yarns and preparing a toolbox for toy-making.
Creatures you can create include:
- Mouche the Bear
- Henri the Orangutan
- Agi the Sheep
- Billie the Raccoon
- & others!
