Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The author of more than a dozen books of knitwear designs and instruction, Bliss here targets the absolute beginner. The 15 designs feature classical lines, beautiful natural fibers, and comfortable garments that little ones can get in and out of easily. This book takes the reader every step of the way through each of the projects, beginning with a simple garter-stitch scarf and then on to a baby blanket, sachets, hats, sweaters, booties, and socks. Many projects appear to have been designed to teach a particular skill. A pillow with buttons, for example, teaches seed stitch and how to make a bound-off buttonhole. Garments are for newborns through 36 months. One caution: the yarns recommended are from the author's own line of yarn, not widely available throughout the United States but sold by many web-based yarn vendors as well as in a number of local yarn stores. Recommended especially for large public libraries and where demand warrants. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    GREAT book for someone who is not even a beginner knitter

    I actually went to buy the Itty Bitty hat book but B&M didn't have it. I saw this and got it right away. I know how to cast on, knit and pearl. That is it. I never knitted anything in my Life. The best part of this book is it has patterns that only require one or two different stiches. I am making the first item right now. I LOVE it. The only issues I have seen so far is that when I went to the craft shop they didn't cary the specified yarn and it doesn't give an alternative list. That stinks for the beginner because I don't know how to sub things yet. I can barely understand how to read the yarn (sarcastic). The other thing is I didn't know what darn meant and I had to read through the book to see what that meant. The definitions should be clear and easy to find. Other than that, this is perfect for a beginner. In my opinion, there is NO perfect beginner book. You have to subsidize books with on line videos. It is to hard to understand the verbage and illustrations when you are a beginner like me. You will like this book in particular because of the one or two stiches needed in patterns that you can do so easily. Great book.
