I've just bought this book as I needed new crochet patterns for presents for friends' and colleagues' babies and toddlers. I like most of the projects in it, though some are a little bit 80's and definitely needs to be updated.

I haven't started any projects from the book yet, because I have found one very big flaw! Throughout the book all the sizes are given like this; "to fit chest 51 cm, 56 cm and 61 cm". I don't have the opportunity to measure the child or baby I want to crochet for, and have absolutely no idea what chest size a 1 year-old is. So how do I know what size to crochet?

I could guess, but I don't want to spend my time on a project I then have to unwind and start over because it's too small. I think I'll look at other patterns and compare the finished chest size on their Projects to this, but it just seems a lot of trouble before I can even start crocheting.

A good book but a little too advanced for me as I'm a beginner, detailed as it was.
Good for more experienced crochet folks.

it has nice ideas for hand craft but you must be a bit of an expert to be able to decode the instructions

Most of the patterns are for double knitting yarn. The patterns used various stitches which were all clearly explained.
