Wrap up your baby in the ultimate comfort blanket, stitched with love. This is the biggest ever collection of knitting- and crochet-stitch patterns specially designed for making cosy crib covers, beautiful heirloom shawls and supersoft blankets and afghans. A delight to stitch for your own little one, they also make an extra-special christening or baby-shower gift. The main directory features 200 stitch patterns, mix-and-match block designs, and a selection of pretty trims, each with a detailed swatch photograph, easy-to-follow instructions, and motif diagrams where appropriate. Designs are rated according to degree of skill required, and all stitches and techniques are clearly explained. Experiment with colour and texture and choose from bobbles, cables, lacy picot patterns, ripples and blocks featuring hearts, teddies and flowers.
