Format: Paperback
This is a beautiful book of knitting patterns for children from 0-10 years. The designs are unfussy and modern and vary in difficulty from beginner to advanced.
The patterns are mainly sweaters and cardigans, but there are also patterns for a coat, scarf, cushions, bags and blankets.
All the patterns are illustrated with beautiful colour photographs and include schematics and most include charts.
The patterns I have tried were easy to follow, and the finished results were lovely.
My only critisism is that there is no information about the yarn to allow you to substitute if you can not find or afford Rowan (Although as this is a Rowan book, it is hardly surprising).

Amazing to finally find a book where I want to knit about 90% of the patterns. I've made 4 so far and each has turned out fantastic. Instructions are easy to follow and uncomplicated.

An excellent book! 30 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love this book. The designs are practical and contemporary. The book is well presented and attractive. I have spent hours with this book in one hand and yarn shade cards in the other - planning my next projects! There are very few designs I would not like to knit given limitless time and money. I have had difficulty obtaining some of the recommended yarns (in Australia) but have successfully substituted. The instructions are very easy to follow and are not difficult. There are diagrams showing the dimensions of the garment pieces, which I find invaluable when knitting for my 3 year old daughter who still has a chest measurement of a one year old but is much taller!

I love this book! 29 Aug. 2003
By Katherine Maddox - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is so full of fabulous patterns that you really won't know which one to knit first. Five or six of them are sized for infants, but almost all of them can be made for two- or three-year-olds up to ten-year-olds. I've made a number of patterns from this book and have loved all the end products (as have their wearers).
Some of my favorites: Hero, a Rowan Denim roll-neck with a big white star on the chest; Lucky, a soft moss stitch cardigan for babies; Harry, a cool mock turtleneck with ribbed sleaves; and Daisy, a cardigan with huge flowers all over it. There are also two bags, a hat, two blankets, a pillow, and two scarves.
All of the patterns are pretty simple (beginning to intermediate knitters), but have a special something that makes them fun to make and to wear. I know I'll be knitting from this book for years.

Never go out of Style Patterns 4 Oct. 2002
By Kelly Edgar - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just received this book and am already in the midst of making on sweater and have plans to make many more, using all types of yarn to create different effects. The patterns are straight forward and even for the beginner it will draw you in and inspire you to create. The pictures are clear and full page. Many patterns from babies up to 10 year olds. Instructions are quite clear. You can even adapt the patterns for teen if you like. There isn't enough time in the day to make all the sweaters and accessories. This is one of those books when you find you have knitters block that you can pick up and be inspired all over again. LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT.

Classic Knits for Young AND Bigger Kids!!! 16 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
The first thing I really loved about this book is that the patterns go up to age 10, a definite plus. Secondly, the models are absolutely beautiful, from all ethnic backgrounds, something you don't see everyday. And thirdly, the patterns are spectaular, especially Crumpet, Muffin, Jolly, Imp, Chill, and Daisy. You will find plenty of inspiration in this book.
Happy knitting!!!

Beautiful basics 16 Dec. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book. Although I haven't knitted a sweater from this book yet, I am definitely going to. I love knitting sweaters with interesting textures and I am not a big fan of lots of color changes, so this is the book for me. There are lots of elegant, contemporary patterns for kids in here.
