This book is filled with cute, easy knits with a vintage feel. There are knitting patterns for seven different adorable animal toys a rabbit, a kitten, a mouse, a puppy, a panda, a teddy and a monkey, each approx. 8 inches (20cm) high and all easy and quick to knit. Each animal is accompanied by a mini knitted version of itself that can be stored in the little shoulder bag or backpack that each toy carries.
There are patterns for over 50 garments and accessories in which to dress the toys - most of them knitted and some sewn garments. All the clothes are one size and designed to fit every animal, so the reader can mix and match items to create their chosen toy's own unique wardrobe. The outfits are split into themes such as Out to Play, Picnic Time and Time for School and include pyjamas, outdoor clothes, summer dresses, school uniform and so on, with added accessories.
Readers are encouraged to use up scraps of yarn and fabric they already have for the clothes, re-using materials from a favourite item thats long since outgrown to make a keepsake toy that has special significance.
