I wonder how many of the previous reviewers have actually attempted one of the patterns given in this book. I have just completed the teddy hoodie, which looks wonderful in the picture. The jacket itself is fine, but the hood is much too small for a six month old baby's head, and would have been very tight around his neck. Despite being a reasonably experienced knitter I could not see a way to make the hood any bigger, but I did manage to improvise a collar to replace the hood, which looks quite good. I wasted quite a lot of time and effort on a useless hood though!
