The patterns list yarns that are usually found in specialty yarn shops, such as Blue Sky alpaca or Lorna's Laces. The patterns do use yarns in common weights, so it will be possible to substitute if a knitter chooses to do so.
There are a few things in particular I really love about this pattern collection; the photographs, the dolls, and the customization suggestions beginning on page 8. The collection itself has enough variety that if you want to knit for children, you will probably be able to find something for almost every child in this book. The dolls that are wearing the matching pieces are all 15 inch cloth bodied dolls. the dolls are adorable, and remind me of Kathy Kruse Waldorf style dolls. The book states that many of the patterns should also fit on 18 inch dolls, like American girl, without much adjusting needed. This brings me to the third thing I like about this book - on page 8 Fortune tells how to use actual body measurements from children or dolls to adjust the patterns to a custom fit. Since children (and their dolls) do not have bust and waist shaping, adjusting patterns for them is much easier then for adult women. With the ability to customize, this book just made itself even more worthwhile. Knitters will need not fear a poor fit in their gifts to small loved ones.
Fortune is herself a busy mother to small children.Read more ›
I did find it helpful to check out the pattern notes on Ravelry for the patterns I was interested in making, The comments over there are generally very instructive. The photography of the patterns is quite good--you don't just get one weird artistic shot that leaves you wondering exactly what it looks like. I did order it as a Kindle book and the formatting was quite good. Overall, a really great book.
The patterns are nice and easy to knit though, and once you've made a few you can start playing around with the patterns and cusomizing them for your own unique pieces. A good place to spring off from.
There is a great variety of projects in the book so no mater what little kid and their little best friend you want to make something for they will get a kick out of these adorable projects for sure!
