5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Search Press 8 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Twenty to Make series is always good value, and this one is no exception. There is lots of variety, macho bootees for boys (have a look at the ug boots) as well as pretty ones for girls, and all the patterns (written not charts) are clear and easy to follow. Good value for money, so well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super 22 Jun 2012
By Heather
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a super little book of patterns - I have made two pairs of bootees so far and am looking forward to making several more. If I have one small criticism, it is that the instructions are a little sketchy here and there, for example when I have finished the decreasing/increasing, there is no note of how many stitches I should have. Small point, but I think valid. Otherwise, a great little book of patterns all of which can be adapted to your own choice of colour etc.

Since writing the above, I have made two more pairs of bootees. I am not as happy with the book now as I was, in fact I have definitely got the Hump! The pink bootees with the lace effect front were so out of proportion, I undid it and left out one complete pattern set of rows with the result that the bootee is now in the correct proportion. The picture of the pink and lilac bootee shows THREE knitted flowers, the instructions are given for two and those instructions are simply to cast on 18 stitches knit one row, increase in every stitch in next row, then cast off. Nothing else as to how to create the flower out of the semi-circular piece of knitting you have in your hand! Fortunately, I am quite artistic and made something of it, but not everybody might find it that easy to improvise. I really think the author of this book should have proof read it more carefully as it is so disappointing when things are not explained sufficiently.

Twenty different patterns offers lots of choice to make simple, fun bootees for a baby. The patterns are quite easy to follow, for a quick and simple baby gift these are great.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
although it says 20 to knit, there are only 4 or 5 basic patterns, the rest are variations on a theme. it is alsoheavily weighted towards girls, not a lot of use to grandmothers like me who only have grandsons!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Instructions!! 21 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have knitted one or two of these patterns i.e. "Baby Lace" and "Spring Flowers." I believe there is a mistake in the instructions of "Spring Flowers". Row 8 should read (P3,K3) 5 times, P3. Consequently Row 9 should read (K3,P3) 5 times, K3.
Please tell me - any knitter - if I am wrong. I am rather ancient now and although I love knitting bootees I have not done so for a while. As you can well imagine I tend to like the more old fashioned style but there are many cute ones in this modern book and it is well worth buying for such attractive patterns.
