The Materials section of each pattern is comprehensive: explaining yarn types, Needles needed, notions, and gauge. Child patterns start as small as 3 months and some go as large as 10 years. This is great because I can use the book for many years as my daughter grows. Each pattern in the book is not only adorable but practical. There is even a matching child/doll set for one pattern. Just a note: the patterns are all set up to be for girls, however, I'm sure some of you crafty knitters out there can adapt some of them for boys. One thing I wanted to specifically praise, was the fact that not only are the sizes listed, but each size lists the measurements (i.e.; chest, bust, circumference etc.) so that you can chose the best fit. Enjoy!!
Outfits don't match perfectly, and Stefanie explains her daughters aren't girlie girlie, so she's not designing pretty "pink" outfits, but every day wearable outs that both mom and daughter will enjoy and wear all the time - something I want in a FO.
Patterns are sized through infants to size 50" adults and are all made in Stefanie's usual seamless, top down style.
There's a great mix of styles as well, from lace, cables, aran, etc. - I love the Mother's Lace Cardigan (of course, I love lace!)
