Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com 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.

From Library Journal

Bliss has to her credit more than a dozen books on children's knitwear. This collection of classic designs, 27 in all, includes patterns for pullovers, cardigans, caps, and wraps for children between the ages of one and ten. These are classic styles?aran patterns, fair isle, garter stitch, intarsia?most of which would look great had they been sized for adults. With patterns that will appeal to all levels of knitters from beginner to experienced, this book is highly recommended for public libraries.

Format: Hardcover
The Debbie Bliss styles are wonderful -- however, some are too bulky - especially those for infants. I would have preferred that the patterns included a range of sizes -- only a few do. I have made five sweaters to gauge -- in each case some of the instructions were unclear and I had to anticipate what the author's intentions were. In one particular case, a matching beret was huge -- I knit one and so did a fellow knitter, following the same instructions and using same needle size as the matching sweater. The hats were too large for me -- this hat was supposed to fit a three-year old! My advise to fellow knitters -- really pay attention! And try your gauge over the cable patterns AND whatever stitch the instructions recommend!

This book is inspiring, and the sweaters are adorable in the photos-- but why don't they fit the models? Most sweaters are two or three sizes too big for the child wearing them. There's a boy pictured in a sweater that looks like it would fit his father. I'm all for making clothes a bit big to allow for growth, but this is ridiculous.
If you want to make one of these sweaters, check the garment measurements carefully to make sure you'll be rewarded for your efforts.

There are plenty of projects within this book to knit for the kiddos. The only drawback as some people see it is the sizing, but the finished garment measurements are provided for all patterns, so measure your little sweetie, and pick how much ease you want! I plan to knit at least 5 things from this book.

Maybe I was expecting from Debbie bliss another superb design book, but this one didn't grew up to my expectations like the easy knits or celebrating family. The models look oversized on the children and had an impression that they were washed in the washing machine already million times. Might be that this is some new look I am not accustomed to?
