Format: Paperback
I just finished knitting the 0-3 month size of the Ribbon-Tied Wool Vest over two evenings. Overall, the instructions are simple enough (just K1P1 ribbing and stockinette stitch with simple decreases for shaping). The trouble started when I was ready to pick up the stitches around the neck for the ribbing. The instructions don't call for circular or double-point needles! I've been knitting for 10 years, so I know that you can't pick up 80 stitches around the neck line with straight needles. But new knitters might not know this and this would have been extremely frustrating.

I had nailed the gauge and the finished pieces met her measurements. My instinct told me that the neck hole appeared small, but I continued anyway. After loosely binding off the neckline, I measured the neck hole - even fully stretched it measured just 11". The problem? I googled the average head circumference of a newborn - 13.7"!

I was drawn to this book primarily for the classic, sophisticated aesthetic. But I recommend skipping this book and instead getting a book with patterns that work (Knitting for Baby by Melanie Falick is great) and substituting a more sophisticated color palette.

I'm extremely disappointed in this book. What a waste of money and TIME!! The instructions are NOT CLEAR AT ALL and sometimes are even WRONG.

I loved the photos and patterns in this book and although I'm not a very expirienced knittter, I just had to try one of the baby cardigan patterns. With great determination I proceeded to work it, and yes, the pattern is actually simple, but I had to go on line to clarify terms and procedures, thank goodness for youTube videos which explained them. Most of the time, and practically till the end I was guessing how it was going to all work out since there are not drawings of the pattern or clear explanations of what seemed more like a puzzle than anything else. However it worked out and I ended up loving the project and how it turned out. So, be prepare to perssist if you're not very experienced, but it is worth it.

I loved the book! I was looking for a few simple but beautiful hand knits to give as baby gifts. This book provided what I needed. The garter silk slippers are simple fast and beautiful. The garter wrap top was simmple to make and added with the slippers for the perfect gift,so easy. The lavender bag made a sweet keepsake gift for the new Mom. This is a must have book for any knitters library.

This book is a great resource when one wants to knit the gift of a great, timeless classic for that special little one in their life. I often borrow this book from the library when I want to knit a quick baby gift. I had to make three baby gifts this summer and I felt that it was time for me to purchase my own copy.

Pretty pictures and cute babies, but lots of pics of the same item. Most items have little practicality and would be better classified as keepsakes. Nice to have, but glad I didn't pay full price.
