Or read about the cupcake whose sadness, despite her impressive shoe collection, is the result of the baker forgetting to make her a hearteasily solved by Dr Knit with a little cake-colored knitted heart. Each case study is illustrated with photographs and illustrations that bring the stories to life, while the patterns for the characters and their accessories are supplied at the back of the book.

About the Author

Dr. Knit and the Knitting Laboratory were first launched as a series of art exhibitions in 2009. Since their creation, Dr. Knit, the Knitting Laboratory, and the creatures and their stories, have become a huge success with the public, appealing to children and adults alike. The knitted creatures are unique and original real-life knitted creations. People of all ages are equally entranced by the strange creatures, all of whom have a problem that Dr. Knit resolves for them in his Knitting Laboratory. Each problem, delivered with humour and compassion, tries to embody an aspect, or aspects of a child's experience, and indeed the childhood experience of the adult.
