Format: Hardcover
As I leafed through this new volume of knits for little girls, I found myself regretting my lack of little girls to knit for. The knits in this volume range in size from three years to eight years. But wait! You can adapt these patterns for teens, and. with these imaginative designs, you can delight not only little girls but some big girls as well.

Here's my take on Lovely Knits for Little Girls:

PROS:

1. The designs in this volume are new and very modern. Nothing here your mother or grandmother would have made, so your little girl will be a style leader.

2. Designs cover a full range of difficulty. There's a garter stitch vest with a cute little ruffled gusset in the back that's easy enough for a rank beginner, and there are lace cardigans that will challenge the experienced knitter - something to please every level of knitting skill.

3. The knits are presented in beautiful photographs, and the models are adorable.

4. I'm pleased by the construction of the book itself - heavy paper and a strong spine mean this book will last for generations.

CONS:

My only regret is that the size range is not larger for these imaginative designs. Experienced knitters will used the designs as inspiration, but it may be difficult to impossible for beginners to adapt the patterns successfully.

OVERALL:

Even if you don't have a "little" girl to knit for, take a look at these designs for new ideas for knits for girls of every size. Start with a gauge swatch, and adapt, adapt. It will provide you and your "appointed" girl much enjoyment.

20 Just-Right Patterns, Just for Girls!

When given the opportunity to review this book, I jumped at the chance with exuberance. Being an avid knitter myself, I have noticed that after the age of two or three, there really isn't much out there as far as cute patterns for my kindergartener.

This book has everything from Sweaters, Cardigans, Dresses, Tops and even a snood. The patterns are easy to read and follow.

But I have one big complaint, which is why I will not be giving it five stars. I couldn't find a single pattern or design in this book that I liked. The styles, in my opinion, are not normal and my little girl wouldn't be caught dead in some of them. I can't decide if they are so modern that they're old-fashioned or what, but none of the young girls that I know would wear any of these things. Perhaps they just aren't American and that's the difference.

Remember, this is my opinion and my taste, if you thumb through the book and see something that you can't live without, go for it. :)

Many thanks to the Taunton Press and NetGalley for my review copy of this book. As you can tell, the opinions expressed here are mine.

I have granddaughters ranging from age 8 to 4 and this book fills the ticket for hand knits with Princess appeal. Many of the little sweaters are full of texture, adding to their appeal. While there are a few patterns suitable for beginning knitters, this book seems more aimed at intermediate to experienced knitters. Don't let that scare you though. If you can knit, purl, yarn over, increase and decrease and make cables, you will find something here to dress your little doll child in.

Good selection, the patterns are as follows:

Sweaters:
Butterfly sweater - stockinette and big puffy sleeves.
Aran and Bobble sweater - Very nice
High Neck Sweater with Ribbon - very pretty funnel neck sweater.
Aran sweater with ribbon - A-line sweater with back neck ribbon.
Round-neck Textured Sweater - My personal favorite.

Cardigans:
Fan Stitch Jacket- Not sure I like a ribbon tie but can easily be altered to take a button and loop.
Elf Cardigan with fabric - Skip the added fabric and this is a really cute bolero length jacket.
Frost Flower Cardigan- Pretty lace design.
Grandpa Cardigan - Tunic length cardigan that is adorable!
Cardigan with Lace Edges - Another personal favorite.
Rosita Warm-wrap Cardigan - Front cover- Another favorite of mine.

Dresses and Tops:
Garter Stitch vest - Simple vest with with center pleat at back for interest. Very cute, short vest.
Warm Loopy Vest - I think the kids will delight in the bulky, loopy look.
Bertha Shoulder Wrap - A must have for any Princess.
Isabel and Cable Little Branch Dress - Very classic, very pretty.
Mohair Lace Dress - Very etherial for the little girly girl.
Layered Leaf Skirt - OK, so this one did nothing for me.

I love-love these patterns! There are some patterns with a vintage feel, but many are current and fashion forward. The instructions are very detailed, and the pictures are beautiful, usually shown from more than one angle. Casting on already!

Don't like that there are no measurement charts for blocking, but the technique for handling edge cables on the cover sweater is invaluable!
