Val Pierce's passion for knitting began when her father taught her to knit at the age of five. Later in life she began home knitting for yarn manufacturers, and since then she has made a huge range of items, from evening dresses to teddy bears. She later began designing items of her own, and her designs appear regularly in national knitting and crochet magazines. She also teaches knitting, as well as a range of other needlecrafts, to both adults and children. Val lives and works in Shropshire. Visit her website at www.crossedneedles.co.uk.
This eye-catching, brightly colourful book is cheering just to look through. Val Pierce has assembled an endearing gallery of teddy bear characters for you to knit and to crochet. Each one has its own specially designed outfit, right down to its tiny shoes. These charming little bears stand just 20cm tall and are knitted in simple garter stitch. The crocheted bears are even smaller (10cm) and will sit comfortably in the palm of a child's hand. Each one takes just a few hours to complete, including its clothes and accessories. Easy-to-follow instructions and simple patterns make these little bears a delight to create. Whimsical personalities such as Baby Bear, Peter Pumpkin and Katy Strawberry will appeal to young and old alike. There are also bears for every occasion to give as thoughtful and original gifts.* Cygnus Review *
