Precious Knit Blankies for Baby (Leisure Arts# 5500) Reviews
I love the little sheep blanket but the directions were a little sketchy on how to make the back of the blanket look as good as the front. There was not enough description on how to carry your yarn so it would be pretty on the back.
My daughter sent a picture of a lamb carriage blanket and asked if I could make it for her for her first baby so of course I am. Not only is the lamb blanket adorable but there is a great range of blanket patterns that are lovely and plan to expand the size of some of them, including the lamb blanket! Very precise directions and pictures. I can see this as being a favorite I always turn to.
Some of the color schemes are a little weird, but overall this is a book filled with beautiful designs. It's also a great "next step" for new knitters as it has a couple of designs that are wonderful first projects. I am currently working on the car seat blanket, and it is just so beautiful! Being a self-taught (and left-handed) knitter, I did have to look up a few stitches, but the glossary in the back helped out as well. I definitely recommend this!
Saw this book at a local store at twice the price of Amazon. New grandchild is coming so I wanted to get knitting. Ordered it from Amazon and have already knitted a beautiful blanket for baby due to arrive this week. Most instructions are for lovely but not complicated blankets - a perfect match for my skill level.
Beautiful book, well explained. must have for anyone making baby blankets ! I would rate myself as a beginner knitter and this was easy to follow
Just what I was looking for
The patterns weren't exactly what I was looking for
Great selection of simple baby blankest. Very useful.
