Taking a Peek Inside Colorful Baby Crochet
There are 35 patterns in Colorful Baby Crochet, so they are broken up into three sections: Clothes and Accessories includes 14 patterns, Nursery & Blankets has 11 patterns, and Toys features 10 designs.
This book jumps right into the patterns, with minimal fuss up front. There is a size chart to note though if you plan to make any of the clothing patterns – some go all the way up to 36 months! Like I said above, you can use this book hundreds of times to crochet for the babies in your life – and the toddlers!
Each of the patterns includes the materials list, size, and written instructions. There are lots of great closeup photos to help, and stitch counts are included – always a relief to see! The written instructions follow the standard crochet pattern writing format in US terms, which makes them easy to read and follow.
Overall, I think Colorful Baby Crochet is a fantastic selection for anyone who crochets for babies and tots. Births, birthdays, holidays, special occasions, and just for fun – there are projects for every gift-giving level. The Unisex Romper, Heart Mobile, and Amigurumi Teddy Bear are some of my favorites… But it was so hard to choose!
