This is a nice book of patterns for knitted toy monsters. There are a few int his book I love and alot of others I dont. My only gripe is that quite a few of them are very similar. Also, I didnt find it very beginner friendly as far as a few of the methods go - when it talks about doing a specific kind of method for magic loop I dont think the accompanying pictures that illustrate it are very helpful.I also thought that it wasnt covered at all how to not end up with a hole in the monsters crotch..??. Or maybe youre supposed to have a hole there that you knit up later - either way that point isnt covered.
