I don't have a little one, but if I did, this would be on top of my list of must have crochet books. Actually, for gifts for others with babies or younger children, this is perfect too.

The book is well arranged and the author's attention to detail shows on every page. The contents of the book begin with a short Techniques section (I usually don't like these, but this one is just so pretty to look at that I'll just smile and move on). There are then 4 chapters (followed by suppliers and an index). All the patterns are rated either Beginner, Improver, or Enthusiast. The materials are listed (one type of yarn is used throughout, but substitutions are easy with the yardage clearly stated) and any special stitches are explained in the pattern along with finished size measurements. The colors of the yarn throughout is beautiful. This, plus great photography, makes one just want to linger over the pics, and well, smile again.

The chapters and what is included in them are as follows:

'Sweaters and Cardigans' has an assortment of sweaters, cardigans, and tank tops. (out of 11 items, 3 of these patterns could be for boys)

'Stepping Out' encompasses bootees, hats, blankets, and mittens. (out of 11 items, 7 could be for boys)

'Jackets, Shawls, and Dresses' includes jackets, ponchos, shawls, a cape, and dresses. (out of 8 items, 2-3 are for boys)

'Toys, Accessories, and Room Decorations' has a bunny, coat hangers, garland, baby cloths, and a bear. (all 5 items could be for boys or girls)

I wish you could see how pretty some of these items are! The Springtime Sweater uses updated granny squares and picot stitches. Just adorable. The booties are not gaudy, the hats are sweet, and the mittens are so pretty.

I seem to be surrounded by a grandbaby boom! I have Nicki Trench's Cute & Easy Crochet, which I love, and this book if very similar in its layout. Each project gives a recommended experience level, but as with her other book, the directions and illustrations are very clear even for beginners. A cute selection of baby goods, perfect for gift-giving.

It's got a decent selection - a handful I really like in fact. However, tried making a pair of booties & was irked that there's no final stitch tally after each row so it is easy to get a little lost. Each bootie wound up with a different amount of stitches & both seemed slightly 'off' to me. Did another pattern (one of the squares) that turned out basically fine but how wrong can you go with a square? Maybe other patterns will turn out better.

*** WARNING!!! Do NOT buy this "book"!!! ***

This book is a JOKE. Not a *single* one of the patterns I have begun is without glaring errors, and I am a very experienced crafter. I've designed my own patterns and have worked countless pieces from pattern books. This "book" is an insult, and asking money for it borders on fraud.

As an example: The "Hooded Jacket" pattern gives a tension of "8 patt x 18 rows [...] using a 4mm (F/5) hook" to make a 10cm (4in) square. Even varying the hook size (3mm, 3.25mm, 3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4mm, 4.25mm, 4.5mm: all tried) and yarn (4 different yarns all equivalent to Rooster Almerion Aran in weight, label gauge, fibre type and yardage), this tension never comes out. Ever. This is either a blatant misprint (because the tension that does come out is 8 patt x NINE [9!!] rows to a 10cm square) or an indication that whoever wrote this pattern down like this has a broad-minded (read: bloody idiotic) approach to numbers.

"Row 2 (patt row)" instructs as follows: "1 ch, 1 dc in first dc, miss 2 sts, *make 1 V-st in next st, miss 2 sts; rep from * to end, ending last rep miss 1 dc, 1 dc in last st."

Again: anyone who does *not* think that the number 1 is pretty much the same as the number 2 will notice that this instruction cannot be correct. If you miss 2 ch at the beginning of each "patt row," you will find yourself 1 ch short at the of every row. As follows:

Note: the repeat (or "patt") means "work 1 V stitch, then skip (sk) 2. So one rep can be written as V-sk-sk.

Row 1: 1dc, skip ONE ch, V-sk-sk, V-sk-sk and so on until the wnd of the row where you work V-sk (NOT V-sk-sk as you did up to this point), 1dc.

I love the designs in this books but I found the directions confusing. I knit a lot and I use a lot of books and I was really frustrated. I was trying to make the hooded jacket and I kept reading the directions over and over again and couldn't get it right. I'm going to tear it out and find another patterns.

However, I made the teddy bear at the end of the book and in the parts I didn't understand, I just winged it and it turned out wonderfully.

I recommend that only intermediate and above get this book because some parts you will have to use your own experience to navigate through.

The book is full of wonderful projects. I only have an issue with the crib garland. I would NEVER hang this on a crib. I would be afraid that it would be a strangulation or choking hazzard.
