Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Nothing can beat the individuality and beauty of hand-knitted shawls and garments for babies, which will be treasured for years to come and handed down as family heirlooms. Vintage Knits for Babies contains a wonderful selection of knitting patterns for little ones, from birth to 18 months, based on traditional babies' and children's wear from Victorian times to the 1950s.

Drawing upon her own collection of vintage knitting patterns and photographs, expert knitter and designer of period costumes Rita Taylor has updated everything from lacy shawls, elaborate Christening gowns and matinee jacket sets to pretty dresses, cute cardigans and cosy coats. There is even a chapter on adorable knitted toys. Traditional stitch patterns, such as stripes, basket-weave and blackberry, and many lace patterns are combined with delightful details and pretty finishing touches. Each item has been chosen for its timeless quality and adapted for knitting with gorgeous modern yarns, including merino, cotton, cashmere, bamboo, alpaca and other mixes - all widely available worldwide.

With fascinating insights into the history of babies' and children's wear, Vintage Knits for Babies has an irresistible homespun charm that will appeal to all knitters who appreciate a nostalgic vibe.
