I originally borrowed this from a library but had to own a copy as it was full of so many cute patterns. It has a stitch guide, shows you how to sew your pieces together and the patterns range from newborn to three year olds. It includes jumpers, cardigans,a dress, shawl, blanket and how to filet crochet a curtain.

My husband bought me this book for christmas 2008. I must admit I haven't crocheted for years & have forgotten most of it. This book has very clear instructions, easy to follow & great tips. The best book I have found that clearly explains the techniques used, however....

As for the patterns, there are only a few patterns that I will probably make, as the others are too dated. The rest look like patterns from the 70's or 80's that have just been put in a newer book. I wouldn't put my children in those clothes, they are very old fashioned (ie. tractor design dungarees, tartan style cardigan & hat, polar bear jacket).

This review is from: Crochet for Babies and Toddlers (Paperback)
Some very attractive looking garments to make; but I could not make the two patterns I tried, work properly. I tried to make a baby hat; the first pattern did not work at all,so I then tried another pattern. The hat I finally managed to make was suitable for a 3 year old! The instructions were not reliable, so I will not attempt the other patterns.
This book might be suitable for an experienced crochet worker.

This review is from: Crochet for Babies and Toddlers (Paperback)
I really like the range of ideas in this book - lots of different clothes and the instructions seem clear. I think sizes can fairly easily be adapted too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging crocheters, 3 Oct 2010
By 
This review is from: Crochet for Babies and Toddlers (Paperback)
As an experienced crocheter I have learned lots of new techniques and approaches to construction. The directions are clear, and the garments practical, thoughtfully designed and, I hope, user friendly.
Highly recommended,
Kay hamilton.
