      I had big plans for this when I got it, but those plans have yet to materialize. Still a great book.

    2. Sally says:

      Despite the minimal variation among these sweet knitted monsters, her construction techniques are elegantly simple, allowing adaptation to other types of knitted toys. My favorite is the bind-off/pick-up line that creates many of their mouthes.The instructions are clear and fun to read. The secton on weaving in ends is titled "Oh, the Drudgery!"

    3. Tabitha (Pabkins) says:

      This is a nice book of patterns for knitted toy monsters. There are a few int his book I love and alot of others I don't. My only gripe is that quite a few of them are very similar. Also, I didn't find it very beginner friendly as far as a few of the methods go - when it talks about doing a specific kind of method for "magic loop" I don't think the accompanying pictures that illustrate it are very helpful.I also thought that it wasn't covered at all how to not end up with a hole in the monsters [...]

      I checked out this book from my library and made a Harold the Houseplant Monster. He came out really cute. You can see him at ravelry/projects/Sheil.All the monsters in the book are cute and the directions are clear. I definitely recommend this book. My only complaint is that the finishing directions are a little vague. For example, "Sew on the arms and legs" left me wondering exactly where to attach them. Since the limbs don't really need to be in a precise place and there are good pictures of [...]

      This is a great book by a designer who knows how to have fun. One of the things that makes her monsters so appealing to kids, and even adults, is their simplicity. It is easy to confer a personality on these lovable and winsome characters and find solace in their squishable friendliness.I made 3 of the monsters for my grandchildren, including the one who has baby monsters in her pockets and they all are as cute as can be. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The only change I made was [...]

      Such a cute book. I can't wait to knit some monsters of my own. Lots of adorable patterns. The first 12 or so pages talk about Rebecca Danger's techniques for knitting the monsters Lots of good explanation, photo tutorials and tips about where to find some of the supplies (like safety eyes!). My biggest problem with the book is that it's too hard to choose which one to knit first!

    8. Lee says:

      these are adorable and would make such cute gifts!!, but they are so similar to each other(they all have the same eyes and only two different mouths. you could have more varied features, expressions, or added ribbon, or polka dots, or yarn hair, or bows, etc. to make them more unique.

    9. Kathryn says:

      Some of the patterns are similar, but they're so cute, who cares?! These would be great for cute, last minute gifts or stash busting. Lots of good ideas and helpful instructions, rather than the usual cookie-cutter knitting instructions, which never help.

    10. Cindy Kester says:

      This is an okay book of monsters. I disagree with the manner in which the author chooses to stuff her monsters and find the similarity between her monsters boring. They are cute, however, and popular. Just not with me.

    11. Sabrina says:

      Knitted monstersI've heard so much positivity about this book and I have to agree. She walks you through the construction. The back stories of the monsters were cute and worth reading

    12. Jennifer says:

      I made Geet for my nephew. The directions were great. I can't wait to make another one!

    13. Mary says:

      I love this book! The monsters are cute and fun. I need to make several of them!

    14. Dawn says:

      Want to knit them all!!

    15. Danielle says:

      all of these monsters are a little plain but perfect for the beginner knitter such as myself. i am having a blast making them and leveling up my knitting skillz as well :)

    16. Skye says:

      Cute but very basic. Good building blocks but many of the monsters are very similar.

    17. Rilana says:

      Love!!!!!

    18. Ines says:

      This book should be called, "How to sell a book with two main body patterns and a variety of different ears/arms/legs". Such a waste of paper.

    19. Leslie Jem says:

      Very cute.

    20. Nicolette says:

      Cute, easy to construct patterns for any knitter who enjoys knitting toys.

    21. Michelle Mitchell says:

      This is a great guide to making the popular knitted monsters. I found the patterns clear and easy to follow.

    22. Carrie (123*) says:

      Love this book! Thanks to this book I finally decided to try magic loop which comes in so handy.

    23. Syd says:

      Oh, how I love Rebecca Danger and her monsters!
