From the Publisher
Debbie Bliss has firmly established herself as the most stylish and accessible children’s knitwear designer working today. In Special Knits for Babies, she returns with a lovely collection of clothing and accessories for newborns. Some designs are simple to make—their special quality lies in the softness of the knit, often a cashmere mix. Others are unique for their trimming—a scattering of beads, a velvet bow, an organza ribbon. Most of the designs require little knowledge of complicated techniques: a simple garter–stitch blanket is perfect for beginners and is given a touch of luxury with an edging of satin. For those who prefer more of a challenge, there is a sampler blanket or a cross–stitch embroidered gingham cardigan. With clear step–by–step instructions, simple charts, and charming photos, this is another irresistible collection from the foremost designer of knitwear for babies and children. Debbie Bliss, former designer for Baby Gap, is the best–selling author of more than a dozen books, including Junior Knits, Baby Knits for Beginners, The Baby Knits Book, Debbie Bliss Knitting Workbook, How to Knit, and Classic Knits for Kids.
