- Knitted Fairies
With imagination and flair, Fiona McDonald shows you how to knit ten fantastical fairies, each measuring approximately 40cm (16in) from top to toe, and all with their own character and style. They include a dark Gothic fairy, an enigmatic moon fairy, a cool ice fairy and even Oberon, the king of the fairies himself. Using a basic body pattern, each fairy is dressed in its own costume, complete with wings, in a range of yarns and other embellishments - ideal for using up scraps and oddments from your knitting basket! The dolls make wonderful gifts for both adults and older children, and can be easily adapted to match your friend's or relative's personality or lifestyle. This is a source of ideas and inspiration for knitters of all abilities, and a book to be treasured by young and old alike.
