I have another cute book to review:
This is Modern Baby Knits: 23 Knitted Baby Garments, Blankets, Toys and More! by Tanis Gray and it features 23 patterns for clothing, toys and blankets, all using 3 or fewer skeins of yarn. Published by Interweave, it’s available now in paperback or eBook format.
You can see all the patterns here on Ravelry.
And I picked a few favorites:
This is the Elizabeth Tunic, by Taiga Hilliard Designs. It is knit from DK weight yarn (Dream in Color Everlasting DK) and the pattern is available in 7 sizes. Knit from the top down, it looks relatively easy and is very cute!
I love the sweet simplicity of this bunny, designed by Melissa Schaschwary. It is knit from sport weight yarn (Debbie Bliss Baby) Cashmerino and stands up courtesy a beanbag inserted in the body. Very clever!
There are several blanket patterns in the book and my favorite is the modern Filigree Blanket by Tanis Gray. It’s knit from bulky weight yarn (Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Chunky) so you can whip it out pretty quickly.
The ZigZag Vest by Helen Rose is knit from worsted weight (Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool) and features jogless stripes with some slipped stitches to add interest.
All in all, a lovely collection of knitted goods for a little one!
