Style Your Own Kids' Knits: Simply Choose a Pattern and Select a Motifby Kate Buller
Synopses & Reviews
Cuddly pullovers, classic cardigans, V-neck jackets, brimmed or tied hats, rucksacks and bags: you'll feel like a real designer with this easy-to-follow way of creating individually styled, beautiful kids' knitwear. It all begins with a basic pattern for eight different sizes, including babies, toddlers, and youngsters up to 10 years old. Decide if it should be a jacket or pullover, with a round or V neck. Next, think about whether you want to knit the garment as is, or add a collar, hood, ruffs, side vents, panels, fastenings, or pockets. Enhance the fabric with alternative textures or edgings, and turn to the Stitch Library for different patterns, borders, and a large selection of lace and other embellishments. Finally, find the perfect theme to express you child's personality, including animals, birds, toys, machines, ghosts, flowers, stars, and many more. Every comfortable item is made with children in mind, in kid-proof yarns.
