Sweet and Simple Baby Crochet by Kristi Simpson is a new book published by Stackpole Books that is truly chock-full of some adorable and quick-to-crochet designs. This could be your go-to book for all your crochet item for babies Newborn to 12 months!
As I design regularly for my baby photographer daughter, Gina Ricci, I LOVE crochet baby designs! So when I was asked to join the blog tour for this book, I was very happy to do it!
Kristi has created a wonderful variety of designs that seem quick and easy to crochet. All but a few of the designs are made with worsted weight and bulky weight yarn that is easily purchased at your local craft store or craft department. Each design lists the exact yarn used for each. The book is full of baby hats, diaper covers, bibs, pants, shrugs, sweaters, toys and cocoons. You truly will not be disappointed!
In addition to all the patterns, the book contains sections entitled How to Read My Patterns, as well as a Stitch Guide and Finishing Touches. Below are a sampling of the projects in this book. I couldn't possibly list all my favorites as there are thirty-five (yes, 35!) cute-as-can-be designs in this book. You can also take a look at all the designs in this book via this PDF.
