A World of Knitted Toys is the best(at least I think so) book of knitted toys!

http://mochimochiland.com/  This woman's knits rock my world.  They're so cute and filled with japanese cuteness!  Reminds me of Hello Kitty and/or other random wonderfulness.  Unfortunately, most of them you have to pay for, but they are still the most random and cutest I've found.
these are totally great! i've never seen her work before - i need to knit that raincloud!

jess hutchinson has made some adorable knitted toys including a knit robot.  unfortunately her booklet is out of print.  but sometimes you can find someone selling one on ebay and a few of her patterns are posted for free on knitty and her website.

I see a ton for crocheted ones, but very few for knit ones. All the cute and funky ones seem to be crocheted.

Well, we don't have any cute crochet clothes to make...just crafty karma I guess Wink

Thank you guys for all the links. I'd never seen MochiMochi's stuff before. I've been trying to get a hold of jess hutchinson's book, but I can never find anyone selling it.

I also highly enjoy Kath Dalmeny's World of Knitted Toys. There's a thread about it on this board somewhere, I think. I bought it on a whim off of amazon and was really pleased with almost all of the patterns. The little piglets are too cute.

try ebay.  there were some on there a couple of months ago.  but they ended up going for $80+.  which is ridiculous if you ask me.  the only way i was able to get ahold of one was through someone's blog.  they had set up a drawing for the booklet.  but to be put into the drawing you had to donate $50 to a hurricane katrina charity.  i've also heard that there's a torrent out there for a pdf version of the booklet that you can download.

I always wondered about this too, and I eventually came to the conclusion that it's because crochet allows you to make circles (think doilies).  Knitting tends to be more geometric.

Thank you to all of you. I suppose the thing about circles makes sense.

Yes. We can easily decrease/increase to make shapes. Cheesy
