Combining style with practicality, the 18 projects in this book are made using baby-friendly, machine washable yarns spun from natural fibres to ensure comfort and softness for a baby’s delicate skin. From jumpers and cosy cardigans to head-hugging hats, beautiful blankets and lovable toys, there is something here for every baby up to 12 months and for every knitter. Tiny knits take shape very quickly, which is good news for beginners and experienced knitters alike. And in a world where so many baby clothes are mass-produced, the gift of a hand-knit is pretty special.

I made the Pinafore Dress which is on the front cover in the first size.
I chose a variegated acrylic wool. I only needed three 50g balls.
The dress is made from two sections and I completed it in two days.
I loved this project.
It’s just a shame I don’t know anyone little enough to gift it to.
