Fully revised and updated, Great Knits for Kids is a delightful collection of pint-sized hand knits designed specially for the wee set. More than 25 projects for children ranging from infants to the age of ten, you're guaranteed to find a design that appeals to little ones who are young at heart and short in stature. Choose from fisher knits that use traditional stitches in subtly faded denim yarn and delicate cotton cardigans or classic country house tweeds and a versatile wrap that can double up as a cot cover or a throw. There is something to suit all knitting abilities, with basic stocking stitch and garter stitch for beginners, texture with cables and bobbles for Aran lovers and both simple and more intricate Fair Isles for knitters who like to work with colour patterning. Depending on the style, Debbie has given some of the designs generous size allowances as she believes that children are used to wearing casual clothes and should feel comfortable and unrestricted when wearing knitwear. However, all the patterns quote actual measurements, the knitter can knit up which ever size she prefers.

Review:

With beautiful color photographs and well-presented instructions, Great Knits for Kids moves away from cute tyke clothing to stylish tunics, cardigans, jackets, sweaters, and hats. The first half of the book features lovely full-color photos of the knitwear in action (worn by kids at the seashore or in the park). Clear charts and specifications support the easy-to-read directions. Pattern sizes range from infants to 10-year-olds, with most projects giving a wide range of size options.
