Format: Paperback
200 Stitch Patterns for Baby Blankets by Jan Eaton is an easy to read book with crochet and knitting patterns. The patterns are explained well and the closeup pictures are a big help. My only problem with the book is that I only know how to crochet and after seeing all of the neat knitting patterns I am anxious to learn how to knit.

I mostly agree with the other reviewers' positive comments.

To briefly add to the discussion, I will therefore highlight my negatives:

The book would have been better organized by type of pattern, by application (shawl, pram cover etc.), knitted, crocheted etc. This way, when I want to find something later I have a hope of finding it!!

It would have been nice to see more than the very few full sized items based on the patterns in the book, rather than just swatches.

That said, this is still a worthwhile and inspiring book if you want to make baby blankets. Many of the stitches would work well for many other items as well.

Jan Eaton is a needlecraft and textiles designer who has worked as a freelance designer. She is also the author of numerous needlecraft books.

Winter is coming and life seems to naturally slow down. The hobbies and crafts we may have set aside for the summer are just waiting to be taken out of the closet. Get those crochet and knitting needles out and get ready to make some fast, fun and interesting baby blankets, afghans, shawls and crib covers.

200 Stitch Patterns for Baby Blankets includes helpful tips and techniques for knitting and crocheting, yarns and colors, and great edging patterns. I especially like that the patterns are rated for the level of skill needed to complete a project. It saved me a great deal of frustration and probably an unfinished project. It is also helpful that each pattern tells us (especially beginners) the method of working the project (horizontal rows, worked in rounds, diagonal rows, filet, etc.). The photographs offer additional visual help.

Tuck Eaton's book on the shelf in your craft library. It will be used over and over again. And you will be the author of many beautiful items for personal use and for some lovely gifts.

Armchair Interviews says: If you want a book that is all-purpose (for blankets) this is it

This is another creative and interesting book by Jan Eaton. The pattern information is very explicit and the directions are easy to follow, even the more difficult pattern stitches.

Looked through this book yesterday and today to look for a pattern to make some squares to donate. Wonderful squares and they have difficulty ratings for each project; basically easy and the next level up. Easy is designated by one crochet hook; the next level by two hooks. For knitting, easy is one pair of knitting needles and the next step up in difficulty is two pair of knitting needles. I believe there are 3 hook/needle squares also.
