Cinthia Vallet published her first knitting pattern in 2018. For her, the discovery of seamless knitting methods for toys was the missing piece she’d been waiting for in her creative journey.
“I realized that if we could make a sock and shape a heel, then we could shape anything needed to grow a little animal directly on the needles. I could just grab some needles and yarn, knit stitches and create the characters I had in mind, all in one piece.”
This discovery led Cinthia to become the pronounced toy designer she is today, and now also an author. The book is a unique hybrid of knitwear patterns and fairytales. It features knitting instructions for 12 different animal characters and their clothing and accessories, alongside a small story about each of them.
