Review:

"Drake, founder of TrickyKnits, captures a festive mood in this collect of hand knit baby gifts. Beginning knitters will welcome the explicit directions and speedy results; experienced knitters will enjoy experimenting with chunky knits for tiny newborns. Either way, the soothing colors, textures, and large-scale designs create unique souvenirs, and Drake includes precise instructions and information about yarns used. She also tosses in additional ideas about alternate yarns and color combinations to help knitters create more personalized gifts. While some projects are indented for everyday wear, others are 'photo props' and should only be used when adults are supervising babies closely. The results appear deliciously complex, yet the designs are relatively straightforward. Set apart from most baby knits by the use of large needles (nothing under size 10 and mostly size 15, 17, and 19) and chunky yarns, this scale works surprisingly well for tiny babies. Projects include the usual hats and blankets as well as some 'nouveau' pods and cocoons. Families will appreciate one-of-a-kind handmade presents and knitters will appreciate the ease with which these cozy items can be created. Photos. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

Welcome home little one! Knitting designer Tricia Drake (otherwise known as TrickyKnits on Etsy) makes popular custom handknits for newborns and for the professional photographers who photograph them. In a delightfully creative style, Tricia's 20 patterns celebrate the new little one with an engaging palette and cozy garments and knitted pieces. Playful and pretty, the projects are for beginning knitters as well as seasoned knitters. Each project includes skill level, size, gauge, glossary of abbreviations, materials, size and yarn variations, and multiple full-color photographs.
