Mouche & Friends: Seamless Toys to Knit and Love - Pattern Previews
Mouche & Friends: Seamless Toys to Knit and LovebyCinthia Vallet includes patterns for 12 charming, seamlessly knitted toy animals, plus their garments and accessories. The animals are worked in the round, starting from the nose and knitting down to the feet — growing a toy rather than building it. The garments and accessories are also knitted seamlessly, with various constructions and techniques. You can choose your favourite method for working small circumferences, as the instructions are written to work with any setup. A sample of the patterns in the book are shown below.
Step into the magical world of Mouche the Bear and his friends: Henri the Orangutan, Agi the Sheep, Billie the Raccoon, and others! Mouche and Friends is part of the Laine Books and Magazines Collection.
Mouche the Bear (left)
Mouche has a big heart, with a lot of extra room for love and friendship. Except for the three lonely sleepy winter months that he relishes each year, he is the happiest bear when surrounded by his friends. He’s very jolly, chatty and always up for a party!
Agi the Sheep (right)
Agi lives on a tiny island. She loves walking for hours, jumping from one rock to another, and searching for treasures shaped by the sea.
Alphonse and Mira the Pigs (left)
Alphonse is a skilled cook and the proud owner of a little restaurant, where he can feed his friends while trying out his new recipes. There he is accompanied by Mira, his beloved.
Nanna the Lady Duck (right)
Nanna started knitting when she had to brood her precious eggs for 28 days in a row. Now she always has her wings busy with needles and she utterly loves it!
Billie the Raccoon (left)
Billie owns the greatest collection of buttons all over the wood. Everyone loves to visit Billie, and animals come from far away to have their buttons replaced by her.
Hazel the Squirrel (right)
Hazel is a dancer, always and everywhere. She does not walk, she does not run, she does not climb — she dances! Her dream is to dance in a ballet company one day.
