The book is well arranged and the author's attention to detail shows on every page. The contents of the book begin with a short Techniques section (I usually don't like these, but this one is just so pretty to look at that I'll just smile and move on). There are then 4 chapters (followed by suppliers and an index). All the patterns are rated either Beginner, Improver, or Enthusiast. The materials are listed (one type of yarn is used throughout, but substitutions are easy with the yardage clearly stated) and any special stitches are explained in the pattern along with finished size measurements. The colors of the yarn throughout is beautiful. This, plus great photography, makes one just want to linger over the pics, and well, smile again.
The chapters and what is included in them are as follows:
'Sweaters and Cardigans' has an assortment of sweaters, cardigans, and tank tops. (out of 11 items, 3 of these patterns could be for boys)
'Stepping Out' encompasses bootees, hats, blankets, and mittens. (out of 11 items, 7 could be for boys)
'Jackets, Shawls, and Dresses' includes jackets, ponchos, shawls, a cape, and dresses. (out of 8 items, 2-3 are for boys)
'Toys, Accessories, and Room Decorations' has a bunny, coat hangers, garland, baby cloths, and a bear. (all 5 items could be for boys or girls)
I wish you could see how pretty some of these items are! The Springtime Sweater uses updated granny squares and picot stitches. Just adorable. The booties are not gaudy, the hats are sweet, and the mittens are so pretty.Read more ›
I would recommend this book to anyone who would listen to me.
However, I made the teddy bear at the end of the book and in the parts I didn't understand, I just winged it and it turned out wonderfully.
I recommend that only intermediate and above get this book because some parts you will have to use your own experience to navigate through.
