And what knitter doesn't need a diversion from the usual socks, hats, and scarves? Many of these toys take less than an hour to make. Don't worry, even a beginner can learn to knit mochimochi. If your toy comes our a little lumpy, it'll only add to it's personality! Whether it's a bite-free bed bug, a smiling smokestack, or a grouchy couch - these 20 toys are quirkier than teddy bears but every bit as adorable.
