5.0 out of 5 stars Great designs for boys and girls, 30 Jun 2007
This review is from: Designs for Kids: Hand Knits and Things (Paperback)
Every time I buy or browse a knitting pattern book for children I complaint on how uninteresting looking are boy-geared pattern compared to girl's. This is nothing I can say about Ms. Guy's "Design for Kids" pattern collection.

One of the joys about this book is that boys patterns are fun and exciting to knit. Also, I found very useful that designs are classified by season, using a different yarn for each one: mohair for winter; a wool cotton mix for spring; cotton for summer and wool for fall. You may notice that the colour palette is somewhat limited, but this does not mean is boring at all. For every season there's a beautiful blanket to knit; lovely accesories: hats, scarves and bags; and toys. Another thing I liked, is that each piece of the patterns for toys are shown as they are in real life, not having to picture them in your mind (I'm very bad at that).

Finally the cute pictures by Francois Hall add a charming note to the book, making it a little more special.
