I'm looking for books that have patterns for knitted dolls and animals. Anyone know of any?

OssifrageRage Pretty sure if you search for the words knit toys or knit dolls on amazon you will find about a million. Was there a certain book you wanted to know if someone liked or a certain type of pattern?

OssifrageRage Here are some that are on goodreads. I did not check for reviews, but it is a place to start. I crochet my toys so am not familiar with any of these books.

Julie M (woolyjooly) I finally finished and stuffed (!!) the 'Huggable Hedgehogs' I knitted last summer. SOOOOOOO adorable. This is a FiberTrends pattern by Deb Radtke. I will post a pic on my Rav. project page soon. Highly recommend this pattern, well written. Good for baby boys.

Kristen | 3 comments I agree with Bear's suggestions--esp the last one!
Can I also suggest the single (loose) pattern: Safari Friends (www.KnittingAtKNoon.com) These little guys are VERY cute once knitted up! (much cuter than the picture online)

Kelly H. (Maybedog) (maybedog) I have knitted a couple of patterns from Zoe Mellor's Knitted Toys 25 Fresh and Fabulous Designs but there were errors in both patterns. If you're an experienced knitter you can figure it out but it would be frustrating for someone who relies heavily on the pattern, I think. I absolutely love Kath Delmeny's World of Knitted Toys I haven't knitted anything from it yet (I just bought it) but it has tons of patterns and lots of variety.

Tracy Chapman's Toys to Knit Dozens of Patterns for Heirloom Dolls, Animals, Doll Clothes, and Accessories is pretty good. I gave it 3 stars, same with Debbie Bliss's Toy Knits More Than 30 Irresistible and Easy-to-Knit Patterns.
