Overview

Comfort, for a child, can be a cuddly blanket or a cozy sweater--and these 50 patterns, created by an award-winning designer, make it so easy to knit something adorable for a baby or toddler. Just follow the concise, simple instructions and full-color photographs of delightful garments, accessories, and throws. First, choose one of the basic silhouettes for a sweater, hat, mitts, booties, or coverlet. Then select from dozens of whimsical motifs to make each item unique. There's a purple cardigan with green stripes and bright yellow ducks, and a matching hat too; a sweater with variously colored fish swimming across a sea-blue background; a sailboat pillow, cow blanket, fire truck pullover with hats and mittens; and other appealing fashions.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Bahrt spent 20 years designing for the high-end children's sportswear industry before starting her own business in 1994 creating handknits for babies. Here she presents a collection of approximately 50 of her patterns for babies and toddlers aged six, 12, and 18 months. The patterns use basic pullover, cardigan, hat, mitten, and pillow designs that feature enchanting animal motifs, many with dimensional details like an individual wing sewn onto the body of a duck or a knitted circle and crocheted chain comprising the ear and tail of an elephant. Many sweaters have matching hats, mittens, and pillows. Patterns include step-by-step instructions, multiple full-color photos of toddlers wearing each garment, detailed photographs of the designs, and full-color charts. All designs assume basic knitting skills. An excellent choice for public library knitting collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
