Wonderful patterns! I was very happy with how simple the patterns read, how quickly the projects knit up and how lovely they look when finished. I have had many compliments on the items I've made so far. My favorite so far is the "Vintage Pixie Cap"-- looks adorable, knits-up in a couple hours and is very functional: covers baby's ears and neck, stays on and doesn't obstruct baby's vision at all.

The patterns are-- what would be the word to use--- Logical? I generally have to have a pattern in f...more
Cute pictures, some cute projects. I am making the Vintage Pixie Cap for the second time because I find this a comfortable, practical, and good fitting hat that covers the ears and won't fall off. My granddaughter's parents like it so much that they were upset when they thought they lost it and asked me to make another. I'm also thinking of trying the mittens.

I think there is only one pattern I wouldn't knit in this book. Excellent book for baby and toddler knits!
Super cute knits for a variety of ability levels. I was surprised that her pixie cap pattern is even easier than my own. I wonder why everyone thinks you have to use DK or lighter for babies, though. Isn't chunky more in style these days?
If I were having a baby, I would totally buy this book. Sadly, the only person I know who's having a baby is in Tennessee, and the need for warm fuzzy baby clothes in a TN April is not going to be great.

Very cute patterns. Lots more for girls than boys, so I may have to look elsewhere for the perfect pattern for my soon-to-be first nephew.
Great (adorable) photos. I love the bonnet pattern - have made it a few times for gifts.
A beautiful knitting book so many patterns that I want to knit. Inspiring and gorgeous photos.
Eventually I will start knitting for the nieces and nephew and this has some super cute projects.

Lovely, lovely knitting pattern book. On my high-priority wish list!
