Overview

Right in line with the hot novelty knitting market, this book teaches crafters how to knit their own sports hero using simple techniques that yield fantastic results. Starting with instructions for one basic doll, the rest of the projects allow for complete customization and are clearly illustrated. Imaginative knitting patterns for both male and female dolls are included, along with a range of outfits and sports equipment, from running shorts and hurdles to swimsuits and ski poles. Track, field hockey, and snowboarding are just a few of the 20 kinds of sports stars that can be created. Lighthearted, quirky, quick, and simple, these projects are perfect for any knitter to give to sports-minded friends or keep and display for themselves.
