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.
