I have another cute book here for review:
This is Baby Brights by Kathleen McCafferty, and it is a collection of crocheted accessory patterns for little ones.
While I don’t crochet, I thought this was a particularly cute book so wanted a review copy.
There is a good “getting started” section at the front of the book that includes nice, clearly-illustrated instructions for the crochet stitches you need to know to make the projects. The projects are divided into seven sections, and I’ve picked my favorite from each section to show you.
From “Rattlers and Teethers” check out these fish rattles:
One or two of those would make great baby gifts that you could whip out quickly, and you could use bits of leftover yarn to make them.
In the “Bath Time” section I loved the Owl Hooded Towels:
In “Hats” this cheerful Pom Pom Hat caught my eye:
From the “Booties” section, I love the High Country Booties:
Another great gift project that uses small scraps.
My favorite from “Toys” is this adorable lion:
And from “Nursery” a great mobile:
I think that even I, with my limited crochet skills, could manage that.
And last of all, from “Blankets” I love the Wavy Stripes Blanket
This book is a great resource if you have little ones, or know a lot of people with babies or son-to-be babies. I think you could make up some very sweet gifts just using leftover bits of yarn.
The publisher, Lark Crafts, has offered up a copy as a giveaway. Who’d like it?
