Let your imagination run wild with the latest title from innovative knitter, Sachiyo Ishii. This charming book contains over 30 fun, simple knitting patterns for a range of cute and cuddly toys.

The book is suitable for knitters of all skill levels, and all the patterns require only small amounts of readily available yarn.
