Product Description

Review

In "Knitting Motifs for Babies and Kids: A Source Book of 50 Charted Designs", professional knitwear and textile designer Lucinda Guy draws upon her more than twenty years of experience and expertise to compose a 112-page, profusely illustrated instructional compendium showcasing fifty knitting projects and techniques that cover everything from using and combining colors, to yarn choices and sizing when creating customized knitting projects for babies and children. Offering a wealth of motif designs for illustrating every thing from socks and mittens to hats and scarves, "Knitting Motifs For Babies And Kids" is thoroughly 'user friendly' and enhanced throughout with little 'design ideas' suggestions. A cornucopia of needlecraft ideas, "Knitting Motifs For Babies And Kids" is an especially recommended and useful addition to personal and community library needlecraft instructional reference collections. --Midwest Book Review

Lucinda Guy is an artist who knits! This is a fantastic book, filled with the most amazing assortment of fun and colourful designs to decorate your kids knits - or anything that's knitted.
I love all Lucinda's books and couldn't wait for this one. It was well worth the wait!
There's lot's of really useful information on how to do intarsia, finishing and embroidery, with great great ideas for what to knit.
Another modern classic from Lucinda Guy. Highly recommended!!

I was disappointed in this book as although it does have over 50 motifs the majority are small and I was hoping for a least a couple of medium to large designs. Think butterflies and flowers mainly with a few vehicles.

Lots of lovely patterns but boys certainly win out in the tractor/car/lorry/digger stakes. I've struggled to find a good selection for girls.
