Little Crochet will teach you how to create modern crochet designs for the little ones in your life. Brightly colored yarn and natural fibers are used to crochet unique, one-of-a-kind gifts for both boys and girls. Although pastel colors are known to be soothing and relaxing for babies, there's nothing wrong with adding a pop of color to your baby's life with a homemade crochet pattern.
Inside this 160-page book by Linda Permann, author of Crochet Adorned, you'll find a variety of irresistible patterns for babies including blankets, sweaters, bibs, booties, toys, and more. Plus, the clothing patterns are available in sizes ranging from 4 weeks to 4+ years, which means you can keep crocheting these designs as your children grow.
There are more than 24 practical and adorable crochet designs inside Little Crochet, each one with detailed and easy-to-follow instructions. Stitch diagrams are also included to assist you as you work, as well as an illustrated guide to basic and advanced stitches and finishing techniques. Add your own personal touch to any pattern by following the how-do instructions for adding unique finishing touches such as appliques and embroidery.
Skill levels range from easy to experienced, so you'll definitely be able to find the perfect crochet pattern to make in Little Crochet. These crochet designs are a joy to work up and are sure to be a hit at any baby shower. Some personal favorites that I can't wait to get started on include the Sunshine Blanket (pg. 44), Birdie Mobile (pg. 51), Strawberry Patch Party Frock (pg. 83), Swing Set Cardigan (pg 92), Cutie Patootie Pants (pg. 89), and the No Fuss Party Bib (pg. 116).
