I'm very puzzled about the negative reviews for this book. I haven't yet knit from it, but I've been really charmed by looking through it. The designs are pretty, the patterns seem well written, there are plenty of attractive photos, and I am looking forward to making my first project.

I got the hard cover book. I originally borrowed it from my local library, but the patterns were so cute I had to order one for myself. In the beginning of the book, there is a great Techniques and Glossary section for those of us who need a little refresher ;-)
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!!

I discovered this book online, and purchased it right away. I love the designs, some are simple, some have some elegance like the Mother's Lace Cardigan (my favorite.) The sweater patterns are knit in one piece from the top down. I love the Surfer Tee sweater it has a deep v-neck and a large front pocket for both hands to snuggle into, and my third favorite is the Mother and Baby's Aran Coat, soooo cute! All the baby sweaters are cute as a bug and there is a shawl pattern and scarf pattern as well. Directions are well written and easy to follow.

Any knitter knows the name Stefanie Japel - famous for designs like the one skein wonder and the mini sweater / boob holder and author of countless other knitting books. So even though I don't have a daughter, I had to grab this book from my library and take a look. I happen to be a fan of matching mother daughter outfits, anyway - my mom & I always had matching Easter outfits, and we even had matching "pilgrim" outfits we wore to Plymouth Plantation & Sturbridge Village.

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!)

Love the fact that garment sizes range from a baby newborn to an adult 3x. That means I can have patterns to knit for my granddaughter for many years while I from time to time knit up a lovely creation for myself. This book offers great variety in attractive patterns.
