Overview

These playful, pint-size patterns mix vibrant colors with clever motifs that kids will want to put on parade! You'll find designs for every season, from toasty turtlenecks that will beat the winter chill to light-and-breezy sundresses just right for summer fun. Best of all, each project is brimming with splashes and dashes of bright, bold colors that kids will love.

  • More than 30 projects include pullovers, cardigans, tunics, skimmers, pants, and jackets, with many suitable for either boys or girls
  • Each design relies on kid-friendly fibers and generous proportions for those active, growing kids
  • Helpful sections reveal kid-tested secrets for simple sizing, trouble-free blocking and finishing, neckline knitting, and graphing one's own designs

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Animal Knits is a pattern book chock full of enchanting animal designs for kids' sweaters, hats, toys, and more. Well-known British knitwear designer Mellor provides little instruction for the beginning knitter, making this book more appropriate for those with intermediate skills. Paintbox Knits, on the other hand, is not only a pattern book but also a teaching tool; the authors guide the reader step by step through each pattern, including a wealth of knitting instruction along the way. If I were to count the number of designs I would love to make were time and money no consideration and divide by total number of designs, Animal Knits would be batting a record-setting 730 while Paintbox Knits is doing better than most major league hitters at 400. Another way to gauge value might be to observe that while Animal Knits costs 77 per pattern, Paintbox Knits costs approximately $1 per pattern. Public libraries should seriously consider purchasing both. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
