This review is from: The Ultimate Book of Baby Knits (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a stunning collection of baby knitting patterns from Debbie Bliss. THE ultimate BOOK OF baby knits contains 50 patterns from 3 of her recent books for baby knits, so obviously if you own these you don't need this compendium. However, if you are looking for a classic, stylish collection of patterns that will never date, for babies and toddlers, then you couldn't go wrong with this collection. It covers ages from birth through to 2 - 3 years with some designs which could be for boys and girls.
Not only are you given a great selection of clothing, there are jackets, cardigans, vests, socks, bootees and a beautiful dress, but you also get a great selection of blankets (one of which i'm waiting for my wool to arrive) and toys to knit as well.
The knitting basics are at the front so even a beginner could use this collection, the patterns cover everything from beginner to advanced knitter. Some patterns are basic stitches (knit,Purl), there are also cables and some intarsia work, offerring the more adventurous knitter a little bit of a challenge. Alot of the patterns will knit up quickly although there is a large lace shawl which obviously contains alot more work. The photographys are clear and you could easily use a different yarn to what is recommended. All in all this is well worth the money, would make a lovely gift for a new mum or just for a knitter.
