I hesitated to review a knitting pattern book, since I cannot
vouch for each pattern and patterns are essentially the book. But
this book suprised me and charmed me. There are 25 projects for
children. No sweaters and scarves, just costumes and toys and
silly things for kids.
The projects are mostly beginner to intermediate. They’re rated by
how much time needed to complete the project. Here’s some of the
Tool set with pouch
Super kid cape
Ancient Egyptian outfit
Pirate bath set
Alien tooth fairy pillow
Robot jammie bag
This book assumes that you can knit. The first chapter shows
special techniques like felting (used in a wizard’s hat) and how
to knit i-cord. You may recognize the author from Knitty Gritty, a
knitting show on DIY Network.
Ready to knit something unique for the kids in your life? I think
you’ll be pleased with this wonderful book.
