World of Knitted Toys by Kath Dalmeny

I was overjoyed to find this in my library the other day. I have been looking for a good traditional children's toy book but they must have all been out on loan. This is such a brilliant book and I would recommend it so highly if you are looking for basic knitted toys. There is such a sense of humour in the patterns and book as a whole! :)

Kath has divided her book into sections - everything from farmyard animals to forest friends, from safari to australian outback. There is even a blonde female farmer with plaits and an eskimo in a cuddly coat to knit to go with the animals. The animals look great and the patterns are the simplest you'll find....the only trouble I had was deciding which animal to knit first :)
