DEAD-SHOT
I have had this book for almost two years now. It was the first pattern book I bought when I was learning to knit. I adore this book.

For knitting for two years, I haven't knit many projects from this book but that's because I haven't knit many projects period. But I have knit the beginner booties several times, and the garter stitch hat, and that gorgeous eyelet blanket that I personalized with some bright delicious stripes. Funny enough my first attempt was the patchwork blanket pattern which I don't recommend as your first pattern because of how even things need to be to get it right. But here's the thing about this book, it just makes you want to TRY.

I've never knit socks, but this book made me want to try booties and I did and it was a success. Knitting the easy garter stitch hat in this book got me through an anxious 24 hours with my newborn in the hospital while I had to stay home. And when I finally decided I needed to just try a sweater, I picked up this book yet again and am currently working on the Sweetheart Pullover which has been a delight.

I think of this book as welcoming. It was a great welcome to knitting book and recently it has become a perfect welcome BACK to knitting book. The patterns are relaxed and the photos are fantastic. I've never used the exact yarns in any of these patterns and it has never ever mattered at all. Everything I've done from this book has been wonderful.

If you're new to knitting, or you're coming back to knitting, or you've been knitting and want some good quality pieces for a special baby in your life, definitely pick up this book.

I definitely hope Melanie Falick and Kristin Nicholas team up over and over again.

One neutral point: The title states "with Complete How-to-Knit-Instructions". I don't agree with this. Although it does include lots of instructions and techniques, I for one know I wouldn't have been able to teach myself to knit from this book. I was able to really teach myself how to knit mostly with Stitch n Bitch. I also occasionally used the internet. But this book did help me with refreshers in some things and did help give different perspective on techniques like increasing and decreasing or offered other methods of how to do things. In other words, I think if you are learning to knit, this should not be your one and only purchase or resource. I would at the very least combine it with a good instructional guide like Stitch n Bitch and then let the yarn fly.

I have read some of the negative reviews on here and have the following reactions. The word "heirloom" doesn't automatically translate into something complicated. It just means something treasured so much, it is passed on. And a novice can most definitely create something treasured. The thing about these patterns is they are solid. And a treasured, solid item, can definitely be handed down again and again, creating an heirloom.

Other negatives I read on the reviews are how basic the designs are. Again, this should be a plus. If you are truly of an intermediate or advanced level, I think you would this book inspiring as a building block of sorts. For instance, the eyelet blanket is such a good solid pattern, it is easily adaptable. I personally jazzed it up with bold stripes and it has a completely different feel to it. I also disagree with statements about colors used in the book being dull. There is a pretty good balance here. While some things are done in neutrals (which, by the way, are extremely helpful in creating timeless heirlooms since they are never out of taste), they do splash colors in there to get the mind whirring.

If you are looking to simply reproduce exactly as shown knit pieces and prefer the more complicated and intricate variety, I could see this book not appealing to you. But if you just want to turn out good solid projects and have enough confidence in your own creativity to build on the patterns, I think you'll find this as much a joy as I have.

Enjoy!

This book has a bunch of really good, basic knitting patterns for babies. The patterns can almost all be dolled up a bit if desired, with different colors or a different stich pattern. But if you like Debbie Bliss, you'll probably really like this book for a little something different. You still have the function and clean lines with these patterns, and they're easy to read and follow for a newer knitter. The best pattern in the book is the STAY ON BOOTIES - I LOVE knitting those! I've made four pairs so far, and they are so much fun and quick to knit after the first bootie. And they actually stay on! Beware, though, if you knit up the sides for 20 garter rows like the pattern calls for, they will look blocky and probably not like you'd imagined. I've taken to knitting only 14 or 16 garter rows (depending on what the bootie looks like at that point) and I like them much better. I've used several different kinds of yarn, and I'm using size 5 dpn because I have an older child than what the pattern calls for. I highly recommend this book, if only for that pattern.

I was looking for pattern book with knits for little ones as some of my friends and colleagues are having babies - I wanted a broad variety of patterns that could be adapted in size for several years of age.

I agree with some of the previous reviewers that none of the patterns in the book are earth-shattering unique or innovative, however, all of them are cute and tasteful and can be customised easily through yarn and colour choices. As I indicated in my title I really love the fact that the authors give you the variable sizing option for most patterns (for some it would not make sense) from newborn to 2 year old - critical for no-kid knitters who want to knit fitting garments for little ones.

I am an intermediate-advanced knitter and don't mind the detailed instructions - sometimes they even serve as a good reminder of techniques that you may not have used in a long time.

I don't regret this purchase at all and plan to make multiple projects based on this book.

I first checked this book out from the library and loved so many of the patterns, I bought it online. I am a beginner knitter, and I just finished my first "Baby's First Ball" on page 55. I must say, It was quick and fun once I got the hang of it. I thought it was a very good first project for someone who couldn't remember how to knit & purl, with a little ambition. I did not have a lot of luck with their knitting technique illustrations, so I had to watch a couple videos online and my Mother-in-law helped too. The next time I knit the ball, I'm not going to felt it, and use a soft yarn instead. Another cool thing, is that you can use scraps too. I am going to try knitting a washcloth next. That was why I originally checked out the book (saw it on a craft show). I am tempted to give this book four stars becuause of the basic knitting instructions, but if you are reading this, it means you are also capable of visiting one of the many knitting websites with far better instructions and videos anyway. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for cute, classic baby patterns. Have fun!

This book has fantastic instructions and diagrams depicting the knitting process, including how to fix mistakes. The arrangement of the projects from simple to more complex is perfect for beginning knitters. Therefore, this book could be used as a teach yourself to knit guidebook.
Meanwhile the projects are all beautiful, as are the pictures. Indeed, when made, the projects turn out heirloom quality pieces. I have made several of the sweater patterns a total of at least a dozen times. The recipient parents tell me that they always get compliments when their children wear these garments. Besides, the patterns are fun to make!
This is the third copy of the book that I have purchased. (I keep giving away or loaning out my other copies to friends learning to knit or needing to knit for babies.) I will always buy another copy so that I have one on my shelf.
