I recently bought Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi: More Than 40 Itty-Bitty Minis to Knit, Wear, and Give while visiting my sister in South Carolina. The super cute tiny things in this book are knit with leftover sock yarn. So of course this teeny-tiny blue monkey and his pal teeny-tiny brown chicken will be perfect runner up gifts for the YOSS giveaway.
These teeny-tiny creatures are hard to resist and the the book is filled with them. Most are no bigger than an inch and take an hour to knit. The patterns are simple and shouldn't be difficult for an experienced beginner if you have experience with double pointed needles. If the small size is a stumbling block for less experienced knitters, it's simple to knit larger toys by using larger needles with thicker yarn.
I've already been knitting them for friends & family. They are so much fun to give.
