This review written by wife of account holder. Sorry, no man knitters here.
I wouldn't say I'm an advanced knitter, nor would I say I'm a beginning knitter. I fall somewhere right in the happy middle. The patterns in this book are plenty easy to understand, but what makes them truly difficult, are the rapid increases as someone else mentioned. I'm currently working on the cute little owl pattern. You cast on 6, and within 7 rows you have multiplied those 6 into 48. Basically, you increase every stitch on every even row. The result is that by row 8 I have to hold the loops on the needles at the veeeeeery tip of the needles (resulting in a variety of curse words as the loops kept slipping off no matter how hard I tried to hold them on) because the length of the stitches ON the needles, are 3x's the length of the cast on end. The loops also end up VERY tight so that they are difficult to slide on the needle. No joke, I'm writing this review because my hands and fingers are sore from pulling so hard on the yarn to knit and they need a break. Now, maybe there's a method I haven't figured out yet on how to do this, I dunno. If someone DOES know, please feel free to share. I've tried starting loose cast on loops but that doesn't seem to help at all. My next attempt in this book, I'll probably try using dpn's maybe. As these increases are in pretty much EVERY pattern in the book, there's no getting away from them.
Overall, if you can figure out a way to make the rapid increases easy, I would definitely recommend this book. All the plushies are just adorable and I'm hoping to find a way to make them all. I would say each one is easily only a days' work, if that even, for a moderate knitter. Some are bit trickier than others but pretty much if you just take your time, they're do-able.

I'm an intermidiate knitter. It's enjoyable, works out well, looks like the pictures (if not cuter) and it's consistent. Enjoy! Nothing bad to say about this book!Published 16 months ago by Jenny
