With the exception of the adult-size sweaters, the patterns are mostly done in DK weight yarns, on straight needles (including the hats), and in needle sizes typical to the yarn and patterns (sizes 3-6).
There is a boy version and a girl version for 6 patterns. Singular patterns have an equal number of boys patterns and girls patterns. Yarns can easily be substituted.
The adult sweaters (one for maternity and two for nursing) are pretty in their symplicity and practical in their use (the maternity sweater has ties on the side bottom to let out as your tummy gows. The nursing sweaters have buttons down the front on each side like princess seams to make easy-access nursing.) They are done in Worsted Weight yarns, on size 7-8 straight needles. There is also a nursing shawl done in a hole-y leaf-lace pattern.
Don't let the lack of circular needles deter you. Some people--including us experienced ones--just like to do it the traditional way on straight needles. And professionals know that seaming makes for stronger, longer lasting seams--which is what "Heirloom" is all about.
