Amazon.com Review

With lively colors, charming styles, and wonderful patterns, professional knitting designer Jil Eaton presents 26 beautiful and varied knitted children's outfits in MinnowKnits, Too. Each item is complete with thorough instructions and good schematics as well as excellent color photos. Organized by season and sized for ages 3 months to 8 years, projects range from sweaters, coats, and hats to dresses, vests, and overalls. Though some plans are more complex, a number of them should be within the skill level of the practiced novice. The appealing designs provide ample incentive for even beginners to get going, and the book's introductory section teaches all the beginner basics. As Eaton reminds us, "We all may be wildly busy with our full and varied lives, but knitting remains a time to be still, to dream and create."

I have read all the patterns in this book carefully and won't knit any of them, though I might adapt patterns from other books to reflect some of Eaton's design ideas. My main reason for shelving Eaton's book is her reliance on schematics. Schematic drawings illustrate pattern instructions with symbols (not symbolcraft), arrows, lines, and numbers. Eaton does not provide a key of any kind to these drawings, which amazes me given that she assumes her readers need far more basic instruction in things like casting on. Neither Vogue Knitting nor any of my other comprehensive reference books was any help; a search of the Web turned up no instructions. I suppose it would be possible to puzzle the schematics out by carefully comparing the text instructions to the drawings and creating your own key. But I think that was Eaton's job. Frankly, I am now far too irritated by her oversight to reopen the book any time soon.

I am an advanced beginner/intermediate knitter. I was really surprised with how easy some of the sweaters were to make and how cute they came out. I made one sweater for my 4 yr. old that so impressed my husband that he asked me when I was going to make him one. The instructions are really clear and the photos are great.

Both the Minnowknits and Minnowknits, Too books provide knitters with wonderful, creative patterns which can deck any kid out in style. Patterns are clearly written, and include a number of simple finishing steps that add a professional look to any garment. Friends and I have made rompers, dresses, sweaters and hats, and have been quite pleased with our efforts. A must for any knitter, especially Aunts and Grandma's!

If you loved the first Minnowknits book, you will most likely love this one too. It is filled with bright, adorable, simply constructed children's knits. Since it is basically a book of patterns (rather than a book of techniques, theory, etc., that you would refer to again and again), you do need to ask yourself if it is worth getting the book rather than buying the patterns individually. In my case, it was definitely a good investment, as I have used many of the patterns. I only wish they were written for big kid sizes, too!

This book, like her first book, MinnowKnits, is just adorable. It's a great book to look through the only problem is which pattern to knit first. No worries they are all fairly quick to knit so you can knit a few in no time.
The directions are clear, the designs are sooo cute and the children are too adorable for words. Definitely a must have. Happy knitting.

I've looked far and wide for good knits for kids and this book has them. The patterns are charming and wearable. The instructions are clear. The knitting itself is fun, without being overly complicated. I recommend this book highly.

I love small projects that I can work on during my bus commute, so I'm predisposed to like any book of child-sized patterns. I have to say, though, that the patterns in this book are unusually adorable and the one I'm working on ("Button, Button" -- a double-breasted cotton chenille jacket accented with great buttons) is simple, simple, simple, but very neat and stylish-looking. My neighbor's baby is going to be smashing in it. (I may have to procreate myself, if only to have someone to model my work!)
