Overview

With the publication of Katie Boyette's third book Wearable KnitWits, fans can now have their monsters and wear them, too. After writing two books of toy patterns, Boyette is excited to take a totally new direction: wearables. And it all began with a pair of giant feet. A couple of years ago, she decided to knit a pair of slippers that looked like monster feet. They were an instant hit with her kids and adults and even better, everyone who saw them was reduced to fits of giggles: a perfect combination of silliness and functionality. In Wearable KnitWits you'll find patterns that are cute, stylish, or just downright silly, but they're all designed to elicit a smile, such as: the Accordian Hand Warmer, Baby Monster socks, Cable Knit Yeti Scarf, Cyclops Monster Hat, and 16 more designs. "Boyette brings her background in studio art to this collection of knitted toys, which are simple to knit, easy to customize, and fun to finish. In addition to animals and interestingly shaped monsters, Boyette includes patterns that capitalize on the craze for vampires and pirates. If you've ever wanted to make a vampire panda for your favorite True Blood fanatic, this is your book." —Nanette Donohue, Library Journal's BookSmack KnitWits

This book has a scarf that looks like a badger and other scarves with yetis and robots. It has mittens with one-eyed monsters and bibs with angry green monsters that say "FEED ME!" There are Big Foot slippers and hats that look like frogs or other animals. But my favorite is probably the mittens that look like lobster claws.

    I have been knitting for years and have most  of the knitting books out there. The book is pretty as far as the pictures, but
    the pattern directions are a little different than most books. It seems to me the author assumes you know what she meant
    when she wrote the pattern...   I think some of the patterns are unrealistic...gloves that are like lobster claws, no child will keep those on
    very long.  Of course this is just my opinion but if a mitten or glove gets in the way, kids wont wear them.
