With more than 20 charming creations for youngsters from birth to three, this playful collection of knitwear for stylish little ones will get knitters' needles clicking. Designs are aimed at knitters of all levels, and the book includes an introductory section so that even a first-time knitter can make one of the adorable ensembles. The projects utilise big needles and bulky yarn, making these patterns rewarding and less time-consuming. Included are a snuggly kimono and bunting for a layette, jackets and sweaters for outdoor adventures, and hats and booties for toddlers' tops and toes. Charming details like bobbles, spirals, ruffles, and tassels enhance the simple pattern shapes, infusing them with unmistakable whimsy.
