Summary

Summary

Thirty charming, intermediate-level projects give knitters a wonderful opportunity to delight their children with familiar and beloved nursery rhymes on handmade mittens, scarves, hats, vests, or blankets. Each item, shown in color photos and charts, is worked in one piece and presents a shortened version of the rhyme along with an image that illustrates the playful words.

Library Journal Review

The bright combinations of colors first attract your eye, then you notice the words knitted into mittens, hats, scarves, and blankets. Boyer, who is a poet as well as a knitter, here knits children's nursery rhymes and motifs associated with the rhymes into colorful accessories for children. Included are 30 projects for intermediate to advanced knitters as well as excellent information on working with color and designing your own nursery rhyme blankets, hats, mittens, and vests. Recommended for large public libraries-especially those in snowy climes. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
