About the book
Nary a knitter or crocheter can resist making soft, snuggly things for babies. In Comfort Knitting & Crochet: Babies & Toddlers, the Berroco design team (led by superstar design director Norah Gaughan) cover all of the cozy bases, presenting blankets, sweaters, bonnets, and plush toys. Like the first book in the Comfort series—Comfort Knitting & Crochet: Afghans—this one features 50 knit and crochet projects using the company’s bestselling, affordably priced Comfort and Vintage yarns. With project styles ranging from traditional pastels and Aran knits to midcentury modern color-blocking, and challenge levels ranging from beginner to advanced, there’s something for every knitter and crocheter—and every baby they love—in this beautiful collection.

Praise for Comfort Knitting & Crochet: Babies & Toddlers:

“Has a whopping 50 patterns for knitters and crocheters who want to outfit little ones in style.” —About.com

“The girls crochet sweaters are adorable. Cleire Cardiagan is bobbleiscious.” —Examiner.com

"What you will not see are frilly, lacy dresses that might have been popular a few generations back but which aren’t very practical in today’s world. Nor will you see patterns with a lot of dangerous, sewn-on embellishments that children can stuff in their mouths and choke on. This book has practical, wearable clothes that are attractive but down to earth." —MyCentralJersey.com

“This Pink Lemonade Dress? To. Die. For.” —Smashed Peas and Carrots

“What better way to welcome a new baby to the family than with a soft and cuddly hand-knitted or crocheted piece made with lots of love?” —Detroit News

“If you have a baby or toddler in your life, this is a great book to get.” —The Foodie Knitter podcast

“Whether you wield a hook, a pair of needles, or both, you’ll find something to your little one’s liking.” —Yarn Market News

“This is not a book that I’d grow tired using over and over again.” —Knitty.com
