About the author
Debbie Bliss is one of the most popular names in knitwear; in addition to her many successful books—including the Debbie Bliss Knitting Workbook, How to Knit and Classic Knits for Kids—she has also designed clothing for Baby Gap.
In Baby and Toddler Knits, Debbie Bliss has put together a range of 20 designs for young children which includes hats, bootees, throws, and cardigans for babies, little jackets and dresses for toddlers, a rugby shirt for pre-schoolers, and a cable sweater for children up to age 7. All are knitted in Debbie’s favorite yarns which are smooth and gentle on the skin. Many use cotton, the perfect material for kids as it is cool in the summer and warm in the winter, making it a great all-year-round yarn. Some knits also use the ever-popular baby cashmerino, which combines the softness of cashmere with practical wash-and-wear qualities. The 20 patterns include lightweight garments perfect for the summer and cozy winter sweaters, jackets and hats. An illustrated techniques section will guide you through all the techniques you’ll need, and, where appropriate, there are also detailed charts. Enhanced thoughout with stylish color photos, this gorgeous collection is sure to appeal to anyone knitting for babies and children.
