About this title

From Publishers Weekly:

Adorning the 20 sweaters and accessories in this collection are such beloved Disney cartoon characters as Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Bambi, Dumbo and Lady and the Tramp. Duplicating these whimsical garments for adults and children, however, will send the novice knitter reeling. The big, bad wolf here is jacquard knitting, which demands frequent color changes and careful handling. Small amounts of many different colored yarns are needed, an expensive proposition even though individual kits are available (address and telephone number are provided). Hazy color photographs of finished products do not succeed in masking the discrepancies between the faces on the charts and the work-up, where the motifs appear compressed. British designers Coss and Robinson's homogenous background textures on model pieces look suspiciously like machine-knitting, rather than the handknitting that is implied. Most instructions for adult clothing are given in just one size, which will also disappoint many a grown-up Mouseketeer. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Clubs selections.

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
