This is a great book for all ages. There are things easy enough for a beginner and some more complicated. My ten year old granddaughter made the cat first. I'm sure we're going to enjoy making many more together. The really nice thing is most can be made from left over scraps of yarn we all seem to have plenty of.

Directions are correct and easily achievable for a moderately experienced knitter. The author gives detailed information on the yarns, i.e., what kind and where you might find the yarn. That is the only difficult aspect of the patterns. If you want to replicate the project exactly as it is shown it may be difficult to find the yarn. The patterns are fun to work on and the result is as shown in the picture. The animals are adorable. I have enjoyed the book as I have made several of the toys for my grandchildren and for baby and child gifts.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful toy book - I have made mama bear, a mouse and a bunny and all turned out as shown. Easy directions. The only drawback is the finishing does not have very explicit directions - for instance mama bear just says to sew up the legs and attach. The toys are all beautiful and well shaped. A lovely book, much better than most out there.

I love this book! I want to make everything in it! All the designs are so sweet and so cute! There are beginner projects as well as intermediate. The photos are beautiful and showcase the projects very well.

I have knitted many items from this book and I love it.
The first item was the pig and he turned out beautifully. I also
have knitted the bunnies.. they are beautiful. I loved knitting the
mom and the babies. I have also knitted the mice. They are great too.
I have used parts of the doll dress patterns to knit some other items.
I love the shaping that Laura Long puts in her books. I love her
simple instructions. For the ears of the pig instead of using
fabric, I knit them two sided in the round..(Sort of like knitting it twice)
I also did this for the bunnies. It turns out great.. and if you don't
have fabric it is easy to do. Definitely get this book... and
her other book "Knitted Toy Travels" is also great.

This book is easy to follow--and I am very much a beginner. The patterns are cute and although I have to redo that is more my learning than the instructions.

These are adorable small toys that will fit into little hands. Most have sewn on eyes, ears, etc., but with a little creativity, can be knit right into the body of the toy. I altered many of the patterns slightly to make little finger puppets. The book was great to learn some shaping techniques and for inspiration.

I just received this book from Amazon -- Although I haven't started any of the projects yet, they all look adorable and not too difficult -- probably nothing above intermediate level -- Since I live in the high desert, I don't need alot of sweaters, and I think these knitted toys would be great to donate to the children's hospital. -- So, I can put my very minimal knitting skills to some use.
