Users of this book need to be aware that the wrong needle sizes are listed for every single pattern. Pattern instructions say US, but then give UK needle size number. Make the switch according to the conversion chart and you should be okay. Very cute patterns that should give experienced knitters something to enjoy--once they've corrected the needle size!

I wanted to love this book. I even paid FULL price at my local yarn shop; because I fell in love the moment I saw the pictures.
I had stars blurring my vision. When reality hit, I had already marked up the book. When I actually looked at the pictures of the knitting, (instead of the beautiful babies), the pictured hats clearly show they were knitted on larger needles, not on the needle size quoted in the patterns. I had to copy and enlarge the pattern, make swatches in different needle sizes and fit to my grandson's face and head. (the face opening, if you go by the printed pattern; didn't fit his face--way too small--more for a newborn).

Buy this book if you want a picture book of beautiful babies in cute hats.

I just finished knitting my first pattern from this book, and I want to warn other knitters. Yes, the hats are adorable, but if I wasn't an experience knitter I would have had a lot of trouble. First of all, the knitting needle sizes listed are wrong. On EVERY pattern. It also does not specify the length of circular needles needed.

The amount of yarn required for every pattern is "one skein" of lion brand bulky. I made the middle size of 3 sizes, and ran out of yarn.

The way the patterns themselves are written is unnecessarily complicated. Every row is written out, even if there are dozens of rows that are the same in sequence. Nothing is abbreviated. This makes it very time consuming to figure out the patterns.

When making the middle of three sizes, pattern detail that one would expect, like cables lining up with ribbing properly, were not considered at all. In the picture the cables and ribbing line up, though I expect this is only for one size, likely the smallest.

In addition, the pattern font is MINISCULE. If you don't have excellent eyesight, you may want to reconsider.

In short, I am very disappointed by this book. The patterns are adorable, but it's too bad that the writer did not follow conventional knitting pattern standards when putting together this book.

I love the hats, mittens and booties designs. I haven't begun to knit any of the patterns due to the extremely light print. To read the directions you will have to copy and retype the directions so that they are readable. I am not sure if it is only my copy or all the books are this way. Not only is the print so light it is also very small. Am not sure I will keep this book as it will be too much work retyping the directions.

I love the hats, so cute. My only problem is that the hat sizes don't turn out correctly for me So I've had to modify the pattern a bit. I used bigger needles and followed the directions correctly for the largest sized hat and the hat still was only big enough to fit a newborn. So I'm just changing the pattern (bigger needles, casting on more stitches and more rows). It makes a little more work for me but that's my only problem with the book.

As a beginner knitter, I was intimidated to purchase a knitting book. This book has clear instructions and stitch descriptions in the back. The materials are clearly listed for each project and were easily found at any craft store. There are also plenty of pictures to help you complete each project.
My only negative is that the projects only go up to a 2-3 year old size. My older son was pretty jealous of the hat his younger brother received. If you are an experienced knitter, you could probably figure out how to make the patterns larger. Overall, great book!

This book is nothing really but one hat design with 20 different small adornments that the designer is calling different "monster's". Pretty unimaginative. Same pattern for the mittens also. What is the point?
Poorly designed with very small tiny type printed in very pale gray ink. What the?.......
All in all a complete bore. I even spent my own money to ship back the book....so not interested in owning it!

I wanted to make the fox hat for my son holy cow is this pattern horribly written. First off why is every pattern listed as a US 3 even for a three year old not to mention there is no way that would ever fit him. The ribbing is a huge thing for me as well you need an even number to get ribbing. I am not sure what the designer was thinking when she wrote this book at all. The yarn too is think and I find a pain to work with will e switching to something else maybe Debbie Bliss or something along those lines. I am going to have I do a lot of adjusting to even get this pattern to work very disappointed.
