Descrizione

This is a classic guide to knitting a variety of soft toys, including animals, dolls, clowns, puppets, toy clothing, and much more. With easy-to-follow instructions, simple patterns, diagrams, and even photographs, this fantastic volume is ideal for those with little needlework experience. Contents include: “A History Of Toys”, “Introduction to Sewing And Needlework”, “Knit Your Own Higgledy Piggledy”, “Poodle”, “Knit a Friendly Jumbo”, “'Bobby the Bear'”, “Tommy Tortoise”, “Knitted Lamb”, “Bunny with a Twinkle”, “Knitted Miniature Rabbit”, “‘Chippy’ - A Jolly Clown to Knitt Musical Clown for a Tot”, “Halloween Pop-Ups”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.
