Review:

"When I'm making a gift for one the many adorable kids in my life, I tend to prefer crochet over knitting. There are few reasons for this, but mainly, it's because crochet is quick (and they grow so fast) and a great way to get creative! So I have to tell you how much I love Shelby Allaho & Ellen Gormley's new book, "Crocheting Clothes Kids Love." It has 28 colorful and fun patterns for clothing and accessories that will really help you capture your little one's bright personality!" - Berroco Yarn Blog



"Most crochet books for children focus on babies and toddlers, so award-winning designer Allaho and crafter Gormley (Go Crochet! Afghan Design Workbook) decided to tackle clothes for a different group: children age six to 12. The collection features garments, including winter wear, and small accessories that take advantage of the lacy and whimsical motifs common in crochet. The projects are appropriate for crocheters of a variety of skill levels, and each one contains step-by-step written directions and full explanations of any special stitches used. Adults may even want some of the accessories for themselves, especially the pompom-studded caravan scarf, a cozy, shawl-like wrap that would suit grown-ups as well as it does youngsters. Allaho and Gormley include patterns for both boys and girls in the collection, and those aimed at boys are more than just token hats and scarves. VERDICT The unique emphasis will appeal to crocheters whose little ones have aged out of the baby and toddler patterns, and children in the target age group will enjoy wearing these design." ?" Library Journal



"I wish I had a book with such fun and funky styles when my kids were young, it would have saved me hours of having to make up designs for my fun and funky kids!" - Liberate Your Crochet
