Pregnancy and the special time during the first year of a baby's life is a time for nesting and nurturing-and the perfect time for an expectant or new mother to take up knitting.
In Knitting for Two, renowned knitwear and textile designer Erika Knight presents a delightful collection of knitting patterns for soon-to-be and new moms and their babies. Knitters can choose from 20 easy-to-knit projects in a variety of color schemes. There are knitting projects using easy-care yarns in soft neutrals accented with baby blue, pink, and green; or fine yarns like cashmere in pastel shades of pink, blue, green, taupe, and cream. Other projects use vibrant colors like lime, fuchsia, and red. The patterns for mothers-to-be are stylish, feminine, and sexy and include a long-sleeved, chunky rib wrap; a cardigan with chiffon rose decoration; and a long twinset. The baby patterns are sized for premies and 0-12 months, and include a round-neck sweater with shoulder buttons and matching pull-on pants, a lacy bonnet, and a pixie-style hat with earflaps.
