Anyone have any patterns for knitted toys, or suggestions on books?
Look down about two threads and you'll see someone just posted a link. There is also a search feature linked at the top of the page that will help find all sorts of things you may be looking for.
This is also a great resource.Knitting Pattern Central
Here is Sheldon, a little stuffed turtle with a removable shell.There is also Norberta, a stuffed dragon. There is Kate, a cat in "britches". Here are some Tiny Pocket Creatures, and also Puppers that little kids might like. Even these wouldn't be considered toys, there are nosewarmers. A frontier hat, though that's not really a toy. Pasha is a stuffed penguin. Here are clothes for the Blythe dolls. Bubby is a cute little stuffed bear. And last but not least, Naughtie are fishy toys.Hope that helps!
There's a book called World of Knitted toys that I love I've made a few critters out of there.
I don't know about you, but I'm knitting the Sheldon turtle toy as soon as I finish my mittens! xxx I have never seen anything so cute in my life!
Here are some more suggestions:

I knit up Bitsy Bear for my neice, for Christmas.ADORABLE bear, and she loves it! (I am very glad she is pleased, it isn't the fastest knit, with size 3 needles, but totally worth is!)
