There are easy-to-knit pleasing pacifer clips, stroller blankets, appealing sweaters, and cozy slippers for babies and toddlers to wear in comfort, as well as delectable toys for playtime and handy items for parents who cherish their babies.

Definitely recommend even for new knitters!!

While I will probably use Itty Bitty Hats more often than this book, this is filled with fun interesting projects too.

I fell in love with Itty Bitty Hats, and this little gem is just as adorable. With 3 small people of my own, plus friends having babies, this book will keep me busy. Lots of great ideas, inspiration and beautifully styled. I always say a good knitting book is when you want to knit at least 5 patterns from it. This has about 10 that I want to knit.

This book has loads of fun and easy projects to make for every level of ability. For those new to knitting, there is a quick run-through of basics you'll need to know to accomplish the projects in the book, but there is also a more extensive tutorial in the back of the book for more advanced knitting skills. All in all, you'll learn to cast on, bind off, knit, purl, pick up and knit, several different decreases and increases, the 3-needle bind off, the backward-loop cast on, i-cord, seaming techniques, how to find gauge, blocking, the kitchener stitch, and more. It's fairly comprehensive.

One of my favorite things about this book is the thoughtful design feature that allows it to lie flat while open with its spiral wire binding. It keeps in mind that people will be reading from the book to follow the patterns while knitting and no one wants to have to shove the book under their leg to keep it from closing.

My favorite aspect of this book are all the adorable toys. Most of the patterns (see below for a complete list) aren't only for babies but for kids of almost any age. Heck, there's a couple things in here I want to make for myself! A few of the projects for babies (pacifier clips, crib mobile) can be easily modified to transform them into something usable for any age. I plan on making the mice from the crib mobile without the mobile parts. You could easily leave off the i-cord and clippies from the pacifier clips and just make the flower for a hair clip, the elephant for a keychain, etc. The ideas are endless.

What can't I say about this book that isn't awesome? From the easy to manipulate format (love spiral bound pattern books, no keep-the-book-open weight needed), to the incredibly inventive knitted projects, I adore Itty-Bitty Nursery. I can't wait to make the cupcake hat, the tea set, so many things. Get it; you won't be sorry.

The designs are very thought out and creative. Easy instructions. I love the little knit animal pacifier clips. They are so cute! The tea set is also adorable! I love that this has such different patterns and they are so easy! I was confused on how to do something and she emailed me back with a link to a video on her blog. It showed me exactly what I needed!

I love knitting for babies. They are quick, pretty and appreciated. This book takes it a step further. This patterns are interesting, easy to adapt and functional. The layette sets make sense - blanket+jacket+mittens+bunny, cardigan+hat+blanket, pillow+slippers+sweater, blanket+cardigan+hat+booties+rattle. And the extras are adorables - I immediately made 4 mice and 3 dummy clips for a newborn. This book is fabulous.

What you need to know:
- patterns may include crochet and embroidery.
- range from beginner to high intermediate.
- there is quite a bit of how-to for beginners.
- the book is from US with US needle sizes, gauge and measurements (no metrics given).
- some patterns are quite fiddly - meaning there is a lot of sewing of little things in some patterns.
- needle sizes range from US size 3 to US size 8. (So there are some fine knits and some chunky knits).

Would I buy this book again? Absolutely.

Perhaps with the shipment of the book, Amazon should include a link to the author's website for the correction sheet. It was only after looking at a particularly complicated project that didn't seem to make any sense, did I google the author's website. On her blog she has error sheets for her books. And this isn't just one or two errors, but three printed pages of errors and omissions. I think the projects are terribly cute, but being off by ten or twenty stitches on something so small really makes a difference - and can waste a lot of time and yarn.

I learned to knit earlier this year solely from "Itty Bitty Hats," so I couldn't wait for Susan's newest book to come out. What a great book! The patterns are written so clearly, the projects are all adorable and innovative, and the photography is gorgeous! I've already made the dotty chicken and the entire "Three Pigs and a Wolf" set and am about to begin the mice from the mobile--each project has been wonderful to work on. Five stars, all the way around!
