This one is a winner

The first time I looked through this book I was already knitting about 5 of the outfits in my head. And yes, the cover set is not one of them, why it was chosen to represent this book is beyond me. Most of the sets are very stylish and special. This is a keeper for sure. No knitting instructions to uselessly fill the pages. With no baby of my own on the way I will use it mainly to knit as gifts. The yarn weights are mostly DK weights, which doesn't lead to extremely lengthy knitting times, but will still look much nicer on a tiny body than some of the chunky knits that fill other knitting books. Knitting is not a craft that leads to results in a day.

Sweet outfits that will thrill parents!

This book is just delightful. Each outfit is a winner and you can make the whole one or mix and match. The yarns used are not expensive, but can easily be substituted if you need to. I have made several of these for friends, who were really thrilled with the results, and it's so lovely to see babies looking so cute in something you've created. The patterns are easy to follow, there is something for every skill level, and no instructions on how to knit, which is great if you know already and I guess like most other people, I have books that help with stitches I'm unfamiliar with. All in all, a real treat, and I wasn't disappointed by buying this book 'blind'.

Delightfully different

This book of baby knit designs completely enchanted me. The garments are helpfully arranged in "wardrobes," with each set containing some combination of trousers, overalls, pullovers, jackets, dresses, hats and boots. The photography is a treat for the eyes. The styles are definitely NOT what you see every day on babies; since the author and photographer are French, presumably the designs are too. I found the directions clear and concise, well diagrammed, with charts where applicable. The designs are all tiny - mostly to 12 months size though a few to 18 months - so if you want to knit for a particular baby you'll need to get an early start. The book doesn't contain any knitting directions (I'm glad they filled it chock-full of adorable garments instead) and some of the patterns could be challenging for very new knitters. These are not drawbacks, as long as the buyer is aware that a certain knitting mojo may be needed to produce these eye-catching garments. My first choice was the swing top from the "Perfect Little Girl" wardrobe. Much as I want to knit the rest of the pieces to go with it, the llama romper is claiming my attention next. Infants probably don't care that much about looking stylish. But if you want to please yourself and some new parents or parents-to-be, there's sure to be something in this fantastic book that will send you running for your needles.

Exquisite patterns! Even my husband thought so!

A beautiful book with fantastic photography and exquisite modern baby knits. They have chosen probably the most hideous outfit from the whole collection to put on the front, so ignore the cover. Totally worth buying!

Beautiful things

This book has some of the most BEAUTIFUL baby clothes I have seen yet. The outfit on the cover is NOT one of them. So don't judge this book by the cover.
