They're hiding under the bed. And in the closet. And anywhere else you've stashed yarn. They're friendly little monsters, and they're ready to come out and play!

Popular designer Rebecca Danger presents 20 patterns for the most adorable monsters ever to climb off a pair of knitting needles. All are shown in two colorways, and most are done in two yarn weights, to help you pick the perfect yarn to suit your monster's personality.

LOVE this book! I am simply obsessed with the monsters in it! Each time I finish one, I think its my favourite until I make another and it quickly becomes my new favourite! Its a neverending cycle! Very easy to knit, quick to produce and they bring a smile to anyone, young or old!!
Any of these charming designs would be perfect for a beginning knitter. All shaping is done with the simplest of increases (kfb) and decreases (k2tog), plus stuffing (which Danger explains in detail). Demonstration photos are given each time a new skill is required---not just for the first monster it's used on. There are some delightfully clever tricks, and all the monsters are charming.

Review from Bonnie Brody, Top 100 Reviewer, Amazon.com

What a fun book this is! There's a monster for every special child of your heart. There's an attic monster holding a feather duster; a bathroom monster with a toothbrush and one with a tissue in his hand; Dot the Dress-Up Box Monster with pearls, lipstick and a scarf as accessories; and a whole family of monsters - mommy, daddy, and four babies. Gabby the Garden Monster is red and looks like a tomato; Hugo the Couch Potato Monster could take off a few pounds; and Kat the Kitchen Monster reminds me of a cupcake.

These are sweet monsters, not at all scary. They're meant for a sweet smile or a laugh. They would even be fun to knit for yourself. Everyone has an inner child and these would fit the bill for that. All in all, this is a fun and creative knitting book.


Review from Knit 123,summer 2013

Monsters can be lovable, cute, and cuddly-at least they are in this fun book from Rebecca Danger. The stuffed monster toys that you can create with her patterns are sure to delight children of all ages. The patterns are fairly simple, yet offer terrific opportunities to learn new skills, like knitting with double-point needles, picking up stitches in the middle of a knitted fabric, and shaping with increases and decreases. These adorable toys are a clever way to use up odd skeins of yarn in your stash. Make them now and have them ready to give as holiday gifts!

Rebecca Danger

Rebecca Danger of Lake Stevens, Washington, is a craft-pattern designer who believes crafting is a lifestyle, not just a hobby. Since she really, really, really likes to knit, she started knitting rather obsessively and writing patterns of her original toy designs in February 2009. She really likes this since it means she gets to knit all day, tell the government that all of her yarn purchases are business expenses, and still afford to feed her family. She's got a great blog that you should visit: rebeccadanger.typepad.com.
