Mouche and Friends by Cinthia Vallet
This beautiful book by Cinthia Vallet, published by Laine Publishing is a magical adventure into the world of Mouche the Bear and Henri the Orangutan, Hazel the Squirrel, Agi the Sheep, Billie the Raccoon, and others!
Mouche & Friends: Seamless Toys to Knit and Love, includes patterns for 12 charming, seamlessly knitted toy animals, plus their garments and accessories. Little Hazel the Squirrel is especially close to our hearts, as she’s knit up in our yarn. We’ve popped some kits together if you fancy adding her to your collection of woolly friends.
All the animals are worked seamlessly 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: the instructions are written to work with any set-up.
This book is an absolute joy to look through and we know it will be as dear to your heart as it is to ours.
We have made handy kits for Hazel the Squirrel and Mouche the Bear.
