Overview

This book is a delight. Katie Boyette's designs are playful, inventive, and a whole lot of fun for both children and adults. The 20 projects are organized from beginning to end with the easiest upfront and moving to those that are more of a challenge in the latter pages. Icons are shown that clearly indicate the level of each project. Katie has included a glossary on each project page so there's no annoying back-and-forth looking for abbreviation meanings. KnitWit contains more than 150 full-color photographs of each project, showing along-the-way photos, important steps such as attaching arms and legs, and final photos of the completed piece.

Editorial Reviews

Creative Knitting Magazine
KnitWit: 20 Fun Projects for Beginners and Seasoned Knitters by Katie Boyette is a collection of humorous, and yes, witty creatures. From Jacques "Crusteau" the big-eyed lobster to Vampiric Panda to monsters and other beings made from a great imagination, KnitWit has a creature for every fantasy. Abundantly illustrated with templates and process photos, this book all but guarantees success.
ForeWord
�KNITWIT: 20 FUN PROJECTS FOR BEGINNERS AND SEASONED KNITTERS by Katie Boyette (Sellers Publishing, 128 pages, softcover, $18.95, 978-1-4162-0608-8): In a style similar to Japanese Amigurumi, Boyette has crafted various original creatures out of yarn. Beginning with simple projects, such as �Owls,� or �Frank� (a Cyclops with a top hat), Boyette defines each creature by level of difficulty. A glossary of knitting terms is provided on each page so readers don�t have to flip pages while knitting. Other characters include �Dave,� a wide-mouthed monster sporting underpants, who reportedly �often speaks in a fake Russian accent,� or �Alligator,� who has human legs wearing feminine blue shoes sticking out of his mouth.�
Denver Post
Just as the crafting crowd is ramping up for holiday gift-giving, this book is a colorful reminder that there's more to make with yarn and "sticks" than scarfs, hats and blankets. The author is an artist whose interesting knitted animals and monsters seem to have personalities of their own. Whether these patterns are well-suited for beginners is debatable. But two things are certain: A hand-knit gift will put a smile on the face of its recipient, and these creatures are unlike most anything else in a child's toy chest � especially if those toys were store-bought.
