Mouche & Friends: Seamless Toys to Knit and Love is Cinthia Vallet’s debut book that includes patterns for 12 knitted toy animals, plus their garments and accessories. Cinthia brings her characters to life with little stories, creating a charming combination of a knitting book and a children’s storybook. Come meet Mouche the Bear and his friends: Henri the Orangutan, Agi the Sheep, Billie the Raccoon, and others!

Cinthia’s toy-making process is unique and totally seamless, which ensures a flowing knitting experience. 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.

Available in English and French.

With Cinthia Vallet’s knitting method, you start at the animal’s nose and knit down to the feet — growing a toy rather than building it. It is rewarding to see the character’s personality quickly emerge!
You won’t need a lot of yarn to complete your animal: never more than 50 g, often much less. Cinthia favors natural fibers, particularly sheep wool or blends with alpaca or mohair.
The animals are worked almost entirely in the round. You can choose your favourite method for working small circumferences: the instructions are written to work with any set-up.

“With this book, I’d like to offer you a poetic break that conveys the spirit of childhood; an enchanted digression where you allow yourself to dream and play.”
