Reviewed by Rachel Hyde


Decorate your tree, table, and mantelpiece or give them as gifts. There are twenty cute toys in here, all under 4” and ideal for using up scraps of yarn. As with all the Twenty to Make series this small format book costs under £5 and is filled with quick, fun projects. Each one features written instructions, a list of materials, size in metric and imperial and a whole page photograph of the item in situ. This is not a primer and it does not contain any beginner information on how to knit; it is a book of patterns. You only need to know how to knit and purl so this is an ideal book for any knitter with the basics mastered. At the beginning there is a short section on what yarn, stuffing and tools to buy, abbreviations used and worded descriptions on how to make an i-cord and do French knots, backstitch and chain stitch. There isn’t room for diagrams, but you do get a lot of lovely patterns for your money. Choose from Nativity scene characters, Santa, snowman, Rudolph, a polar bear, gingerbread man and more. This is a great book for any knitter to fill the dark evenings leading up to Christmas.

If you cannot find a good range of knitting materials locally try for a list of suppliers.
