Adorable, soft and colourful – and just the right size for little hands – knitted toys are the ideal gift for children of all ages. Many of the toys come 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, these loveable patterns will inspire you to pick up your needles and get started.
