Reviews

Baby knits are the perfect way to try out new techniques or styles: they're small and quick to knit, and they almost always look cute, even if crafters have made a few mistakes along the way. In this collection, freelance writer and editor Cornell (editor, For the Love of Knitting; Modern Knits) and her fellow designers explore knitting traditions from all over the world, through a variety of garments and accessories sized for babies and toddlers. Many of the projects feature stranded colorwork in folk motifs, including a Finnish-inspired newborn hat and mitt set, a traditional Fair Isle sweater, and a cap with an Andean bird motif. There's also a lovely Spanish crib blanket, a lacy Peruvian chullo, and a traditional Aran sweater. Because knowledge of each method is assumed, no specialized directions are provided. VERDICT Adventurous beginners and intermediate knitters who want to explore folk traditions and colorwork on a small scale will enjoy this title. - Library Journal
