Ham's (25 Gorgeous Sweaters for the Brand-New Knitter) 20-odd knitting projects for kids' clothing and accessories are suitable for any knitter who has mastered knitting and purling. Garments are sized for ages three to eight or ten and call for yarns readily available to the average knitter. Much of the charm of these projects lies in the bright colors and extra touches, e.g., novelty buttons and embellishments. Girls will like the ruffled, beribboned Pretty Princess Jacket with matching purse, while boys will want the racing-stripes sweater (to wear, perhaps, with the scarf with built-in pockets designed for stashing small treasures). Information on substituting yarns and modifying garments for growing children is a plus. Highly recommended for public libraries.
