Easy Baby Knits: Clothes & Accessories for 0-3 Year-Olds by Claire Montgomerie Review
A wonderful collection of stylish but practical knits for babies that parents and babies alike will love, created by expert knitter and textile designer Claire Montgomerie. Getting Started tells you everything you need to know to start knitting. Step-by-step photography shows you how to cast on, bind off, get the right gauge, and basic knit and purl stitches.
Essential techniques such as increasing and decreasing are clearly explained, and there are handy tips for fixing mistakes. Baby Clothes for boys and girls range from a simple Baby Scarf or Cotton Bootees (perfect for a new baby) to a smart Double-breasted Knit Coat, colourful Overalls, and a pretty pink Wrap Top. Each pattern introduces new techniques, so you can learn as you knit. Toys and Accessories includes projects for the nursery, from a Bird Mobile to a Rabbit Soft Toy, and beautiful gifts such as a Naming Day Blanket. *With easy-to-follow patterns and imaginative projects, you won't be stuck for ideas for what to knit for your, or someone else's, baby. *An ideal book for complete beginners and experienced knitters. *Includes an invaluable mail-order and suppliers section. *Gorgeous photography by Claire Richardson.
