Howell (Step It Up Knits) was at the vanguard of the current knitting craze—her show Knitty Gritty (2004–08) brought knitting to basic cable. Here she presents a series of clothing and accessories for babies and toddlers, knit primarily in garter stitch, a stitch ideal for beginners. Howell peps up her projects with interesting stitch patterns; colorful, easy-care yarns; and a touch of whimsy. The garments range in size from newborn-2T, with a few items in sizes up to 4T, and the small accessories (e.g., the slippers and diaper cover) are only available in a single, smaller size. Howell's directions walk knitters through each section of the project; charts and schematics are provided as needed. VERDICT Knitters looking for fun, quick-to-knit, and stylish baby and toddler projects will appreciate this collection.
