When my daughter gave me this book, I was thrilled to think I could make toys etc for my 3 grandchildren. I decided to make the Kangaroo and Baby Roo first. The first problem is the needle size - nowhere does it state which type of needle should be used, whether it be US, Canadian or UK!! This was very confusing and I just had to 'wing it'. Then I found a couple of errors in the instructions - on row 18 of the body side, it should read to increase 1st, but it doesn't. Then on the Bsby Roo ears, it should read to cast on 4 stitches, not 2. The main problem I have is the Kangaroos feet!! It shows feet on the picture, but nowhere in the instructions does it give the instructions to make the feet! Now what do I do? I have a kangaroo with no feet! I wonder what other errors I might find as I knit other toys from this book.

The knitting instructions are hard to follow for the increases and decreases. According to the directions there is suppose to be diagrams of how to assemble the teddy bear, but there was not any diagrams to follow so I had to make it up as I go. This is definitely not a good book for a beginner.

This book gives no indication of the size of the toy one is making, and the instructions are not that clear. The needle size to use for any one pattern is not obvious (whether it's in Old UK & metric size, US size or Canadian size. I found this book quite disconcerting and am an intermediate knitter, so know fairly well what I am talking about. I am disappointed with the book and am pleased it is from the library and not my own.
