Crochet in A Day for Baby designed by Candi Jensen for Leisure Arts.
"Every baby is special and deserving of projects made with love". Candi Jensen
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything about this book! I love the photos, the cute designs, the layout, easy-to-read schematics and the font used for the text!
Crochet In A Day For Baby contains 20 ADORABLE quick and easy baby projects that can be made in a day or weekend.
The projects are broken down into categories as follows: Cardigans (3), Vests 2, Blankets (3), Hats (2), Booties (3), Mitts (3) and EXTRAS for baby (5).
The book has fun stitch combinations and a lovely muted color palette, but of course, you can use any color combinations you wish! Almost ALL of the designs use #4 worsted weight yarn (bib and hanger covers use #3 light worsted weight) and I can envision the wearables in this book made with Wool for winter OR Cotton for summer, to make them even more versatile!
Some of the designs are similar, starting with a basic pattern and then showing us how to embellish the item differently to make it uniquely yours!
For those crocheters who have never made a garment before and are reluctant to, the projects in this book would be perfect to begin with! Each design would be appropriate for gifts and many of them could be considered quick for last minute gifts as well!
Lately I have been designing a lot of baby accessory items for my newborn photographer daughter, Gina and also baby crochet patterns for Too Cute Crochet, my Etsy shop. So, I really enjoy browsing through a GOOD crochet pattern baby book.
Below are photos of some of my favorites designs from the book! Which is your favorite?
