If you have a baby to make clothes for and you're handy with yarn at all, even if you're not big on crochet, I suggest you take a look at this book.

I have to say that the baby on the front cover sold this book to me. How can you resist those eyes? And I'm glad because if I hadn't bought it -- I'm a knitter, not a crocheter -- I'd have missed out on some wonderful, adorable baby clothes. My niece is due any day now, and I've been whipping up ponchos and silly hats, and booties like a mad person. These patterns are remarkably easy, and have a kind of goofy charm that just works with babies.

If you have a baby to make clothes for and you're handy with yarn at all, even if you're not big on crochet, I suggest you take a look at this book. You can't fail to create memorable clothing items in almost no time at all with these patterns.

For those who want something fun to crochet for babies (without making the same old boring pastel stuff) - you have to check out this book...It's awesome! Candi's designs rock! It's my favorite and the most used book in my crochet library, and even as a beginner crocheter, I was able to make a number of items from her book without a problem!!! Totally fun and hip coats and sweaters, Ugg-style baby booties with a matching hat and jacket, crocheted dresses, even a kimono-styled dress and sweater set! Totally fun and worth every penny!

I just bought this book at my LYS and it is SO adorable! Very doable designs. Hip without all those garish colors and animal shapes that other knitting-for-kids books have. I think there was only one design that I did NOT want to do (which is a miracle for a book). This isn't really a how-to-crochet book though, so if you're looking to learn to crochet, you'll need a separate set of instructions (though there are brief instructions in the back). If you like knitting/crocheting for babies, this is a great addition to your collection.

I purchased this book along with the complementary publication "Candy Blankies" because of the adorable pictures and different layouts. The pictures alone are inspiring. However, when I tried to make a few of the projects (by following the directions), I became frustrated with some seeming errors in the patterns as well as sizing issues (yes I check my guage).

For example I made the hat on the cover of the book along with the coordinating jacket. For the jacket pattern I was frustrated with the directions for the finishing work. Sewing a zipper into that was not easy and in the end I made some cute buttons and a loop fastening instead. For the hat pattern it seems like the stitch she used in the picture was single crochet, yet the pattern calls for Hdc entirely.... the hat was so tall that it almost fit my head! I ended up ripping out and adjusting the number of rows to make it a more reasonable size.

All in all, the clothing is adorable and easy to produce.... I just wish the patterns were a little more reproducible.

This book has a nice variety of crochet patterns, updated, in style for babies. The instructions are clear and any one who can crochet can create one of the delightful pieces in the book. The pictures are a must see, and the authors choice in yarns is very tasteful. I made a pair of the Ugg Booties and was thrilled with the outcome.

The color suggestions are nice, and the babies are adorable. But it's mostly single crochet with little pattern variation. If you can adapt patterns, it makes a good reference book, as all the schematics are included.

Perhaps I'm spoiled, as I have a Jack Frost original book... that I use to adapt to the new yarns.

As I love the author's other book, Candy Tots, I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed with this one.
