The classic cardigan, a cosy blanket, practical washcloths and baskets, pram toys, and even that prerequiste Teddy Bear with movable limbs and expressive face are all designs included in this book.Chosen for their inherent softness, animal fibres such as baby alpaca, cashmere and extra-fine merino are complemented by sustainable plant fibres that are breathable, comfortable and soft, Erika has chosen the perfect materials that accommodate every baby's needs. The book also boasts over 50 colour photographs from leading interiors and fashion photographer Kristin Perers. Create beautiful items that will decorate your baby's first months as well as be practical to have around, or give one as a loving gift at a baby shower. With Natural Nursery Knits you can make your own irresistible item to be treasured in the nursery for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars **** 5 Jun 2009
By Lorelei
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lovely ideas and easy to follow patterns. Although most of the patterns are quite simple and the yarns used are all in very natural and soft colours the finished items have a very refined and boutique worthy look about them. A lovely book, especially if knitting for a little girl.

Really lovely book, the images are beautiful, the texture of the book is so tactile, a book worth owning even if you don't knit. The patterns are also lovely, some very unique which is very refreshing!!! Wish they went upto grown up sizes though! Wonderful as it is aimed at the use of organic and natural yarns too. simple to follow instructions. great book!
