My name is Amanda Berry and I love knitting, sewing and anything crafty!
I started designing my own toys as fluff and fuzz in 2010, and my knitting and sewing patterns have been featured in Let’s Knit, Craftseller, and Let’s Get Crafting Magazines.

about my patterns
My knitting patterns are for knitting on straight needles (no awkward knitting in the round). All my patterns are written so that they are easier for beginners to follow, and include lots of photos and instructions to help you.
Below I have tried to answer some of my frequently asked questions, but please do get in touch if you are still unsure, I am always happy to help!
WHERE CAN I BUY YOUR PATTERNS?
You can browse and buy my patterns from the online stores above.
I AM A BEGINNER KNITTER, CAN I USE YOUR PATTERNS?
I want to make toy making easier for newbie knitters, and the information in the store listing will include the different knitting techniques needed to make each toy. To help you, every pattern has:
- row by row instructions, so you won’t lose your place,
- instructions on the knitting abbreviations used,
- a list of materials,
- photos of the finished toy, and
- photos of the construction process, with detailed instructions.
And I am ready to answer any questions as you make your toy, either through email, store messages or you can write a comment on my blog.
ARE YOUR PATTERNS KNITTED FLAT OR IN THE ROUND?
All my patterns are knitted flat, but most can be converted to knitting in the round. I know a lot of people hate seaming, but I wanted beginner knitters to enjoy my patterns, and knitting in the round can be tricky for newbie knitters.
DO I NEED A SEWING MACHINE TO MAKE THE TOYS?
No, all the toys are sewn together by hand. You will not need a sewing machine to sew them together, just a darning or tapestry needle.
CAN I SELL TOYS MADE FROM YOUR PATTERNS?
I have no objection if you wish to sell finished toys made from my knitting patterns, provided I am given credit as the pattern designer. These patterns are intended for personal use, so you are not authorised to sell the pattern itself. I encourage items knitted from my patterns to be sold for charity fundraising purposes.
ARE YOUR PATTERNS IN ENGLISH?
All patterns are written in English, and use English knitting terminology. I include a guide to the knitting abbreviations and techniques in my patterns to help you, as well as a knitting needle size chart.
