Top Customer Reviews
"One-Skein Wonders for Babies" is exactly the book I wanted and needed. I wasn't aware of this series of books, but apparently this is the six edition in the series. I will certainly be purchasing the others (I see one is crochet, too!)
The projects are by many different designers and range from clothing to blankets to toys and lots of other fun stuff in-between. The chapter titles tell it all:
1. Little Ensembles
2. Little Tops
3. Little Bottoms
4. Little Dresses
5. Little Hats
6. Little Socks and Bootees
7. Little Accessories
8. Little Blankets
9. Little Toys
10. Little Miscellany
Each chapter has many different entries, so there is a wide range of projects to chose from. I really like that there are patterns for items for girls and boys and those which are gender neutral. My toddler grandchild is a boy but the baby-on-the-way is not yet known, so I will start with a gender neutral matching pair for the two of them.
The projects are well-laid out with comprehensive directions. I am a much stronger crocheter than knitter but I think I can tackle any one of these projects and get them done well. Each pattern includes the size(s) the pattern can make, the type actually used and amount of yarn needed, needles used, gauge, and extra supplies you will need. This makes it simple to follow along, or if you prefer, to swap out for the yarn that you have on-hand.
The photographs in the book are outstanding and make each project a joy to behold. The back of the book has general directions for knitting information and additionally, lists the designers for the various items. This is great if you are really like a particular style and want to see if the designer has additional patterns available that might suit your taste.
I received a digital ARC copy of this book from the publisher, Storey Publishing, LLC, via Netgalley. I have also purchased a hard-copy to have in my library and to use often.
