Your new best friend is here!
Have you ever seen a knitted toy and just melted with the cuteness? This is the second time for me.
Louise has designed 13 knitted animals, each with its own personality and style. Check out Archie the Squirrel and Louis the Owl, below. Archie is so dapper with his vest and tie, and Louis is ready for a sail in his pea coat and Aran sweater.
One thing I love about Louise’s books is that all of her dolls or animals are the same size, so you can knit them a whole wardrobe! The outfits are what make these little darlings come alive. Even their shoes are knitted separately! Oh, the possibilities . . .
Here’s Maisie the Pig. She’s enveloped in lace, from her cardigan to her dress to her little Mary Janes. Love.
To celebrate the release of Knitted Animal Friends, we’re offering you a free pattern, the Sweatpea Pinafore Dress. Wouldn’t it look cute on Maisie? Or even Louis! He could easily be Louise, right? It’s the clothes that give these precious knitted toys their personalities, so go crazy!
