Knitting is back! People can now be spotted clicking away on trains, at bus stops and in cafés. It's hardly surprising - knitting is a wonderfully enjoyable, challenging and satisfying hobby. And what could be more delightful than knitting cute clothes for a baby?
It's always so exciting to hear that a friend or family member is expecting a baby, but finding the right gift can be difficult. Wrapped in Love offers the perfect solution. Whether you're a first-time, lifelong or erstwhile knitter, you'll find a pattern in this book that you and the new parents will love. It's so rewarding to create and give homemade gifts, and the recipients will really value the effort and care you've put in - even better, knitting small items for babies is so quick!
Inside this book you'll find patterns for 16 beautiful garments and accessories for babies aged 0-12 months. With modern mums (and bubs) in mind, Felicity Dawson has created pieces that are funky, fresh and fun. The colours are vibrant and the patterns original and creative. Finally! A baby knitting book without a skein of pale-blue, pink or lemon in sight!
The patterns range from simple (felted booties) to more complex (pinafore with picot frilled edge). Each entry includes detailed step-by-step instructions, a list of materials and directions for making in various sizes, and is accompanied by gorgeous colour photographs.
With patterns for jumpers, wraps, socks, cardigans, slippers, beanies and blankets, as well as a vest and hoodie, you'll find there's something for every baby in your life.
