Baby and Toddler Knits: 20 Classic Patterns for Clothes, Blankets, Hats, and Bootees by Debbie Bliss (Heather Jeeves Literary Agency)
Best-selling knitwear designer Debbie Bliss presents a stunning collection for babies and young children
Baby and Toddler Knits features a range of classic designs by Debbie Bliss for young children, including hats, bootees, blankets and cardigans for babies, little jackets and dresses for toddlers, a rugby shirt for pre-schoolers, and a cable sweater for children up to age 7. These are patterns which have stood the test of time, and are being brought back to life with updated colour suggestions in line with Debbie's latest yarn shades. All are knitted in Debbie's favourites from her own yarn range, which are smooth and gentle on the skin. Many use Debbie Bliss Cotton DK, the perfect material for kids as it is cool in the summer and warm in the winter, making it a great all-year-round yarn. Some knits also use the ever-popular Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, which combines the softness of cashmere with practical wash-and-wear qualities, and comes in a huge range of shades. The 20 patterns include lightweight garments perfect for the summer and cosy winter sweaters, jackets and hats. An illustrated techniques section will guide you through all the techniques you'll need, and, where appropriate, there are also detailed charts. Enhanced throughout with stylish colour photos, this gorgeous collection is sure to appeal to anyone knitting for babies and children.
