Mouche and Friends
Seamless toys to knit and love
By Cinthia Vallet
Come meet Mouche the Bear and his lovely friends: Henri the Orangutan, Agi the Sheep, Billie the Raccoon, and others!
Cinthia’s toy-making process is unique and totally seamless. The animals are knitted with natural fibres and worked in the round, starting from the nose and knitting down to the feet — growing a toy rather than building it. It is fascinating to see how these little creatures come alive while knitting.
The book is meant for knitters of all kinds. Cinthia walks her readers through the techniques step-by-step with clear, illustrated tutorials, which makes knitting easy and enjoyable. She also shares her tips on working small circumferences, picking yarns and preparing a toolbox for toy-making.
Cinthia Vallet is a designer living in Nantes, France, with her husband, four children and furry companions. She is known for her charming, seamlessly knitted toy animals.
