Editorial Reviews

Review

"When I'm making a gift for one the many adorable kids in my life, I tend to prefer crochet over knitting. There are few reasons for this, but mainly, it's because crochet is quick (and they grow so fast) and a great way to get creative! So I have to tell you how much I love Shelby Allaho & Ellen Gormley's new book, "Crocheting Clothes Kids Love." It has 28 colorful and fun patterns for clothing and accessories that will really help you capture your little one's bright personality!" - Berroco Yarn Blog



"Crocheting Clothes Kids Love solves this dilemma with a collection of 28 fun-to-wear projects, including garments and accessories that are just perfect for that hard-to-please school-age child. Clear photography and clean layouts along with excellent how-tos make this book a winner for all skill levels." - Edie Eckman, Crochet! Magazine



"I wish I had a book with such fun and funky styles when my kids were young, it would have saved me hours of having to make up designs for my fun and funky kids!" - Liberate Your Crochet



"Most crochet books for children focus on babies and toddlers, so award-winning designer Allaho and crafter Gormley (Go Crochet! Afghan Design Workbook) decided to tackle clothes for a different group: children age six to 12. The collection features garments, including winter wear, and small accessories that take advantage of the lacy and whimsical motifs common in crochet. The projects are appropriate for crocheters of a variety of skill levels, and each one contains step-by-step written directions and full explanations of any special stitches used. Adults may even want some of the accessories for themselves, especially the pompom-studded caravan scarf, a cozy, shawl-like wrap that would suit grown-ups as well as it does youngsters. Allaho and Gormley include patterns for both boys and girls in the collection, and those aimed at boys are more than just token hats and scarves. VERDICT The unique emphasis will appeal to crocheters whose little ones have aged out of the baby and toddler patterns, and children in the target age group will enjoy wearing these design." â?? Library Journal

Format: Paperback
I just received my copy of Crocheting Clothes Kids Love, the new book co-authored by Shelby Allaho (@stitchstory) and Ellen Gormley (@GoCrochet). Before I opened it I suspected that I’d find it beautiful and inspiring but largely irrelevant to me since I don’t have or craft for kids. When I opened it I found it beautiful and inspiring … and largely relevant to me because so many of the designs can easily be adapted to an adult size to fit my own style. This shows that the items are contemporary and cute and while certainly suitable for the kids they’re intended for are also definitely inspirational for anyone.

There are more than two dozen crochet patterns to be found here. Many of them are clothes but there are also crochet slippers and lots of accessories for kids like legwarmers, a backpack and hairbands. The book also has some great tips and information – some basic to crochet (like gauge) and some specific to crocheting for kids (smart yarn coices for this niche, for example). The book has a really fun design, with bold coloring and little drawings that capture childlike wonder without being childish.

Definitely one worth adding to your crochet library, whether or not you craft for kids!

The book is a joy to browse through. It has a bright and cheery page layout with great colorful photos.
The schematics are bold and easy to understand. The designs are trendy, yet practical and Allaho and Gormley seem to know exactly what kids would want to wear in today's world.
I like the fact that there is Information written especially for children's garment making including Gauge, Sizing, Choosing Yarns and Blocking Techniques. There are also two pages on Special Techniques, which through photos and easily understandable text, teach the reader How-To's for 3 different crochet techniques that are very popular among crocheters today.
There is a great page of Tips and Tricks written by the designers as they were writing the book that should be helpful to anyone crocheting a pattern from this book.

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned crocheter, you probably have favorite items you like to create. If you are a mom and a crocheter, much of your time will be spent crocheting items for your kids. There are a world of fun amigurumi dolls, princess tiaras, pirate eye patches and other cute patterns to make things for children but until recently very few children’s clothes crochet patterns.

The book provides a range of projects from fun and unique accessories like the whimsical wheel necklace and daisy flower headband to wearable sunny day skirts, vests and tank tops. There are also some really cool and fun projects like the Mohawk Earflap Hat and the Zebra Cropped Hoodie sure to appeal to kids’ fun and whimsical side. The patterns are straightforward and clearly explained and categorized into easy, intermediate and more advanced.

I love the diversity of projects in the book and the many tips, tricks and loads of guidance provided, especially in helping explain the construction of each project, how to plan it and how to execute it even before you begin to crochet.

With each pattern and project, specific instructions on finishing, detailing and assembly are also provided, making the book much more accessible for crocheters of all different levels. Take for instance the Plate Steel Tunisian Crochet T-Shirt. The pattern provides clear instructions for each of the special stitches used, detailed information on the type of yarn, gauge and hook as well as the stitch instructions for each section of the T shirt. But it goes a step further to provide a full schematic of the shirt’s construction as well as assembly, finishing and edging.
