Children of all ages love a stuffed animal. Now you can knit your own with Caprice Birker and her book, "Cuddly Knitted Animals". What is your favorite animal? Is it a monkey, elephant, fox, unicorn, dragon with wings.... There are 22 different animals to choose from.
One basic design is used and then the personalities are added. Most of the animals are knit in the round on double pointed needles (DPN) using sock yarn. For ease of knitting the animals, a row counter would be helpful.
The little extras, like embroidering the face and art yarn accents, will provide the details. The animals are between 6" and 7" tall. The hands and feet are unique as some have thumbs, others fingers and still others a hoof. Why not experiment and knit your own animal.
With a bit of wadding, you will have created your own cuddly animal.
