I’m very excited about this new book of knitted toy patterns!
The Knitted Odd-bod Bunch contains 35 patterns by Donna Wilson, a UK designer whom I hadn’t previously heard of. I love her funny and artistic versions of animals! I especially like the design of her book and its photography, most of which places the knitted creatures in scenes with hand-illustrated cardboard cutouts as props and scenery elements.
Looking at her website, it seems that Donna mainly concentrates on selling her finished toys and other goods instead of knitting patterns. It’s neat that she uses her designs in such a broad way, something I’ve been thinking about for myself lately.
