A specially commissioned collection from Val Pierce that makes working delightful baby knits a breeze. Knitted garments and nursery accessories for babies are a perennial favorite with knitters of all skill levels. From the first hint of a baby-on-the-way, to the baby shower and flurry of getting ready, to the new arrival and birth announcement, nothing seems more appropriate than the comforting click of knitting needles as they create delightful baby knitwear from of the softest, coziest yarns available. With such happy events in mind, these charming baby knits present a range of deliciously sweet garments and bed- and playroom goodies in gorgeous yarns and colors. An ideal book for novice knitters just getting started―and an enjoyable source of inspiration for those with knitting experience who want to work something a little extra special. Whether a little one is part of your life already, or will be soon, there's no better way to spend your time and share your love than by knitting something by hand just for them! Something delightful for everyone, with projects including little dresses, cardigans, coats, hats, mitts, booties, a blanket covered in daisies, a friendly teddy named Edward, soft play blocks in primary colors, and even a nautically themed laundry bag. Patterns with clear, step-by-step instructions, illustrated with beautiful color photographs, along with diagrams and charts where necessary. Plus an introduction to basic knitting skills, techniques, and terminology, for those who aren't sure where to start or are looking for a refresher.
