Knit a Monster Nursery: Practical and Playful Knitted Baby Patterns

Knit a Monster Nursery: Practical and Playful Knitted Baby Patterns
By Rebecca Danger
Published by Martingale

ISBN: 978-1-60468-149-9

Reviewed by: Caitlin Eaton, Editor for AllFreeKnitting


Let's get this out in the open: I've been in love with author Rebecca Danger's work ever since I first saw the adorable Monster Chunks pattern on AllFreeKnitting.  Her patterns, no matter if they're free or sold within the pages of the book, have something magical about them. Every monster she creates features an awkwardly endearing characteristic: limbs might be too long or too lean, eyes may be spaced strangely far apart or a full set of teeth might be missing from a smile.  Aside from offering visual intrigue, all of these quirks work together to create adorable pieces of art that are undoubtedly knit in Rebecca's Danger's unique style.

Danger's latest release, Knit a Monster Nursery, offers the same distinct monster creations, plus a little extra.  Inside, readers will find monster-themed toys, tissue covers, stuffed animals, pillows, blankets, wearables and more.  While each pattern is designed with a nursery in mind, any adult with a love for whimsical things would be able to appreciate all the design elements that have been worked into each piece.  My favorite project — though it is incredibly difficult to choose one among all the adorable patterns — is the giant Monster Chair featured on p. 90.  While I don't have any children of my own yet, I would love having one of these cute chairs in my living room. Even if you don't have a little one on the way, I highly suggest you pick up a copy of Knit a Monster Nursery.  The ideas are just too much fun to pass up!
