Cute items with clear, simple directions; uses just 2 sizes of needles for all the designs and the same type of yarn for all the outfits. Directions were clear and charts for the designs were easy to see and use.

This book is full of fun, yet simple to make baby patterns. Everything is made flat and stitched together. Only size US 3 and 6 needles are used, which is nice if you don't have a large collection. The instructions are clear and easy to understand and the projects flow along. There are many small projects which I like because they make great gifts at baby showers. The larger projects are easy and well designed, with thought given to such matters as buttons up the insides of the legs to allow for a swift diaper change. If you plan to do knitting for babies this is a must have book.

I may never make a sweet little baby gift again. Why would I when I can make a biker jacket or a frog suit?! The patterns are very clear and easy to follow. If you're looking for traditional, look elsewhere.

This book of wacky baby knits is a collection of knitting patterns to make cow babies, Lion babies, and other assorted play outfits for little children. They would also make up into a lasting halloween costume, but the best value in them is the hours of fun I will have making them and the hours and hours of fun the kids with their awesome imaginations will have "being the beast!"

There's some cute designs here, although some are more mundane and hardly qualify as 'wacky'.
The hats include a Davy Crocket one -my favorite- also a mohawk one and others based around a pumpkin or a cupcake.

I loved the footwear- a green monster slipper with red claws or a bear shoe with pawprints on the sole.
Then there's little outfits: an all-in-one cow or frog suit are the most memorable!

I had checked this book out from the library, but with all the cute patterns in it I'd never have time to finish everything I wanted to make before the due date...even after renewals. I just had to go out and buy this book myself. In fact, I adapted the baby mohawk had for my husband and two teenagers!

This collection of knits for babies is just gorgeous. In Australia we have a Rugby team called the Canberra Raiders and the cow hat on the cover is just perfect (with the colours changed that is) for tiny fans. I love the little pink tutu sweater - pity I don't have a grand-daughter - but I am sure the Davey Crocket hat, I am currently half way through knitting it, will be a hit. Knitting fans will surely find something in this book to have a go at. The little ballet slippers are just soooooo cute. I think I will knit them next and find someone to give them to.

Lots of fun, easy to follow patterns, and who wouldn't want to knit a frog costume?
