Special Knits: 22 Gorgeous Handknits for Babies and Toddlers Paperback
by Debbie Bliss
*22 unique and baby-specific designs * Suitable for all levels of skill from beginners upward * Fully illustrated with 40 colour photographs The birth of a baby is a celebration, and Special Knits is based on our need to create lovingly-made items for new little people, in soft yarns that are gentle against delicate skin.
Some of the designs in this book are simple to make - their special quality lies in the softness of the fabric, usually a cashmere mix.
There are other projects where the uniqueness of the design comes from a scattering of beads, a velvet bow, or an organza ribbon.
Most of the designs require little knowledge of complicated techniques; a simple garter-stitch blanket is perfect for a beginner and is given a touch of luxury with an edging of satin, while for those knitters who prefer more of a challenge, there is a sampler blanket or a cross-stitch embroidered gingham cardigan.
In an age of the throwaway, these are garments that will become modern classics, knits to cherish and hand down through generations.
