PATTERN RATING:Star Rating There's a great variety of patterns here, from small finger puppets that could fit in a pocket to comfortably sized soft dolls and animals for cuddling.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are broken down by parts and rows, which I don't think can be improved upon. You get front facing photos only, but they are page-sized and full color. There's not a lot of illustration to go with the instructions, so you should already be comfortable with knitting before using this book.

SUMMARY- Overall I was impressed with this book. The toys are very engaging and there's a great variety. She rates the skill level needed for each project to give you a better idea if you're ready to tackle it. Her large teddy bear has a strong Winnie-the-Pooh vibe going, and the print on the instructions are large enough I don't have to squint to read them - a big plus for those of us who are sight challenged. I liked this book.
