In her latest book, leading children's knitwear designer Debbie Bliss has carefully considered all the needs of any new parent and their child, to create the complete knitwear collection for a new arrival.
Containing twenty-four must-have designs, "Essential Baby" takes your child from their first few days to their first few steps.
All of the projects are knitted in beautiful, classic yarns that are not only soft and gentle against a young skin, but are also practical in that they are easy to wash and care for, to ensure that baby is kept wonderfully snug and cosseted right through its first stages in life.
The book is divided into three main sections. Coming Home gives the core nursery basics for the new baby from a contemporary layette to a snuggle-into shawl and hooded all-in-one.
At Home contains designs for sleepy babies at bedtime, such as a hooded wrap, and a belted dressing gown and felted slippers.
For playtime there also a squashy beanbag for baby to relax on.
On the Go contains outdoor basics that will keep your baby snug on trips out of the house - a warm duffel coat, chunky socks and an innovative reversible hat. There is also a practical changing mat with handles and side-ties for easy transport and a patchwork buggy blanket.
