This book is something new and special for Laine Magazine! Mouche and Friends: animals to knit with love and without sewing is Cinthia Vallet's first book, a charming collection of 12 knitted toy animals, as well as their clothing and accessories. In this book, Cinthia brings her characters to life with short stories, creating a charming combination of knitting book and a children's storybook. Come meet Mouche the bear and his adorable friends: Henri the orangutan, Agi the sheep, Billie the raccoon, and many more!
Cinthia's toys are made in a unique and totally seamless process. The animals are knitted in the round, starting at the nose and knitting all the way down to the feet - growing a toy rather than building it. Fascinating to see how these little critters come to life as you knit them.
This book is for knitters of all kinds. Cinthia guides her readers through step-by-step techniques with clear, illustrated tutorials, making knitting easy and enjoyable. She also shares tips on working with small circumferences, choosing yarns, and preparing a toy-making toolbox.
Cinthia Vallet is a designer who lives in Nantes, France, with her husband, four children and furry companions. She is known for her charming seamless knitted animals. They began to take shape in her mind after she discovered the magic of seamless knitting, and her first pattern was published in 2018. Cinthia realized that if it was possible to make a sock and shape a heel, it was also possible to shape a little animal right on the needles.
