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 out a little lumpy, it'll only add to its personality

Whether it's a bite-free bed bug, a smilingsmokestack, or a grouchy couch--these 20 toys are quirkier than teddy bears but every bit as adorable.
