Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

There are a lot of advantages inherent to knitting for children. The items are small and work up quickly; the sizing needn't be perfect (few toddlers are into the tailored look); and the kids just look so darned cute when you're done. Minnowknits doubles those advantages--the instructions are blessedly clear, the gauge is never too small, and the items will undoubtedly be passed from child to child because they're absolutely adorable, if a bit offbeat. Jil Eaton's timeless styles are hip and vibrant. It's a lucky baby whose favorite knitter gets this book.

From Library Journal

Imagine a baby romper with full, bright orange pants, a green back, and a hot pink front, patch pockets, and knitted-in trim and you will understand that this is no ordinary children's pattern book. The garments, designed for children from three months to ten years of age, include hats, sweaters, party dresses, and jackets. The models are delightful, inspiring the knitter, and not one of the projects would be boring to work on. As is the norm with acclaimed designer Eaton, clear instructions are accompanied by beautifully done schematics. Essential for knitting collections.

These patterns are adorable. They are just what kids like to wear. The designs are unique, colorful and a joy to look at. I am knitting my friend's new baby a dress. I can't wait to see her wearing it.
These are the type of patterns knitters like me love - straightforward, clearly written and the finished product, well, it's way cool.
I strongly suggest Jil Eaton's books to any knitter who is interested in creating cool, hip and groovy kids knitwear. happy knitting. Buy this book and MinnowKnits, Too! You'll be pleased and so will the kids.

These patterns are easy to understand, knit up quickly, (big needles! ) and look adorable. I've abandoned several knitting projects over the years in frustration, but I'm always able to complete Minnowknits projects. Well done.

Format: Paperback
The patterns in this book are incredibly well designed, but you have to be an expert knitter to fill in some of the gaps in the instructions. Ms. Eaton would be well served to work with an editor that is also a knitter. "Ski, Baby" is one of the cutest outfits and worst written patterns I have ever encountered! I hope in the future, the instructions will be more complete!
SINCE WRITING THIS REVIEW, I HAVE CONTACTED THE AUTHOR AND THE PROBLEMS WITH "SKI, BABY" WILL BE CORRECTED IN THE NEXT EDITION OF THE BOOK. FOR THE TIME BEING, UNLESS YOU ARE AN EXPERT KNITTER, I WOULD STICK TO DEBBIE BLISS PATTERNS FOR BABIES AND KIDS.

These knits are absolutely unique and adorable. They are easy to knit and there are many patterns which use cotton yarns and larger sized needles (US 6) Minnowknits, Too is also another book worth adding to any knitter's collection.

I love this book. I made one of the outfits over the weekend and am already on my second. My daugther looks too cute for words in hers and my son is jealous! The pattern was quick, easy, and a pleasure to make. Thank you!

Being a working mother of 2 (13 & 2) it isn't always easy to find a book that covers such a broad age range. I have yet to be diappointed wiht Jill Eaton's offerings. Allowing for the fact that not all of us are at a expert level and yet we want to experiment with color changes and texture, she manages to entice and provide clear instructions, ineresting projects but most of all patterns that are interesting. Also I found that some of the simpler patterns were great places to start someone who wants to learn to knit but can't cope with the idea of a scarf! Try it, you'll be suprised by the sudden itch to stitch!

I LOVE this book. It has given me the "jumpstart" I've been needing to finally learn how to knit and it inspired my mother, too, who hadn't picked up knitting needles in years--until she saw this book!
