Overview

In Natural Nursery Knits Erika Knight has combined the purest yarns with irresistible designs to create a beautiful collection of 20 handknits for the newborn baby including all the necessary basics needed in baby's first months. Ranging from practical first garments, washcloths, cozy blankets, and delightful toys to heirloom pieces, all the designs are made from organic or sustainable fibers.

Chosen for their softness, animal fibers such as baby alpaca, cashmere, and extra-fine merino are complemented by organically grown cotton, bamboo, and milk fibers, that are breathable and comfortable for baby to wear. The result is a beautiful palette of natural ecru, muted pastels, chocolates, and charcoals. With Natural Nursery Knits you can make your own keepsake handknits to be treasured in baby's room for years to come

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Picked as one of Booklist’s Top 10 Craft and Hobby Books list.

“This is one of my favorite pattern books to pick up when I find out that a friend is expecting a baby. The patterns are simple but have beautiful details…. Also, the photography is beautiful, and I really like the way they emphasize the texture of the finished knit fabric in each design.” —Alison Backus, Knit Picks director

“[F]rom the first page (and first project) to the last page, you’ll be charmed. The photography is so delightful...These designs are sure to become appreciated heirlooms rather than dated hand-me-downs.” –Knit ‘n Style

“I like that the projects are either very useful or at the very least they will make beautiful gifts. Since we won’t be having anymore babies I’ll be more than happy to make some for my friends’ little ones. [T]he styling and photography of this book is beautiful, it makes the whole experience of flipping through its pages even more enjoyable if you know a mom-to-be that knits; the book itself would make a wonderful gift.” –A Little Hut blog
