Overview

In this delightful follow-up to Classic Knits for Kids, best-selling author Debbie Bliss places the emphasis on color, presenting over 25 dazzling designs for infants to six-year-olds. Combining style with practicality, this captivating collection of bright, cheerful garments and accessories is fashioned for both comfort and coziness. The projects include exquisitely worked patterns in Fair Isle and Jacquard - the traditional techniques for using color in knitwear - as well as textured designs in Aran using one or two colors to great effect. With ideas for simple items, such as berets, to more elaborate projects, including cabled sweaters and jackets, Bright Knits for Kids has something for every knitter. Each project features easy-to-use patterns, clear charts and instructions, and an enchanting selection of color photographs. A perfect book for anyone who is looking for vibrant and stylish designs to knit for kids.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Bliss, the author of three previous books of knitwear designs for children, believes that knitting for children need not mean grinding out insipid plain stockinette sweaters in "baby pastels" and primary colors. Here she has designed 25 stylish garments that give the knitter the pleasure of knitting ambitious projects on a small scalean aran coat or a fair isle cardigan that would be more daunting in adult size. Patterns are generously sized for babies to six-year-olds and employ natural fiber yarns in a wide range of colors. Instructions include schematics for each design, color photos, and sufficient information to make it possible to substitute comparable yarns for the Rowan yarns specified. Generally recommended for knitting collections.
