Library Journal Review

Author of the popular Ultimate Knitter's Guide and a knitwear designer for Rowan Yarns, Buller here outlines a six-step approach for creating a unique garment in children's sizes from three months to six years. In Step 1, you choose a pattern for either a cardigan or a pullover with either a round or a v-neck. In Step 2, you determine the size, while Step 3 allows you to explore design variations such as hoods, side vents, and pockets. Step 4 is for selecting colors and textures, Step 5 for exploring a stitch library as an alternative to knitting the garment in stockinette or moss stitch, and Step 6 for choosing optional motifs to further personalize the garment for one special child. Knitters can use the patterns provided for plain garments or jazz them up as much as they like. This enchanting book of children's knits is suitable for beginning to advanced knitters. An excellent choice for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
