Crocheting Clothes Kids Love Book and Giveaway

I am so excited to present a new book from Creative Publishing International called Crochet Clothes Kids Love written and designed by Shelby Allaho and Ellen Gormley. This beautiful book includes 28 Fun-To-Wear Projects; crochet designs for kids including Dresses, Skirts, Vests, Scarfs, Hats, Legwarmers, Accessories and more!
The book is a joy to browse through. It has a bright and cheery page layout with great colorful photos.
The schematics are bold and easy to understand. The designs are trendy, yet practical and Allaho and Gormley seem to know exactly what kids would want to wear in today's world.
I like the fact that there is Information written especially for children's garment making including Gauge, Sizing, Choosing Yarns and Blocking Techniques. There are also two pages on Special Techniques, which through photos and easily understandable text, teach the reader How-To's for 3 different crochet techniques that are very popular among crocheters today.
There is a great page of Tips and Tricks written by the designers as they were writing the book that should be helpful to anyone crocheting a pattern from this book.
Some of my favorites include:                      
Rochelle Hat
Plated Steel Tunisian T-Shirt
 Charming Bracelet
Pretty Popcorn Vest
Ellie Backpack
Lacy Sundress
Chelsea Capelet

Crocheting Clothes Kids Love is available from the publisher as well as Amazon.
