Andra was seven years old when she learned to knit, and we reckon she drew on her memories of playtime when designing the fantastic projects in this book. The clothes will fit a 46cm or 18in tall doll and there are 14 garments to knit, including a sundress, skirt, cheerleader's outfit, bathrobe and slippers. The emphasis here is very much on 'easy', so most knitters will find these knits a cinch. There's no stitching on snaps or hook-and-eye closures involved - all of the clothes are slip on, which means simpler knitting for you. This is an American book, so UK readers will want to convert the measurements into centimetres (though we know lots of you prefer inches). But do persevere with that - a little girl somewhere will be very glad that you did.-Knit Today
