Book of the Week
Do you love to make kids sweaters but hate the finishing?
Say no more! This week's featured book is the best of both worlds. Top Down for Toddlers by Deb and Lynda Gemmell combines the fun and satisfaction of knitting a kids sweater with the almost no-sew technique that we knitters crave.
The book started out with the basics; extremely well written patterns for a pullover, cardigan, hat and socks. Then the authors enlisted the creativity of a group of talented designers, who took the basics to a whole new level. For example, the basic pullover gets a fabulous cable or becomes a pocket hoody. The classic cardigan is given a Nordic look with an intarsia pattern
The tried and true hat pattern becomes a Russian hat with addition of some novelty trim. And there are several variations on the sox pattern as well. Also included is the ever popular poncho, sure to please any little girl.
Top Down for Toddlers includes patterns suitable for beginners to intermediate knitters with well written instructions, color photographs, yarn suggestions and schematics where necessary.
This book is a must have for your knitting library and at 16.95 + 25% off this book is a real bargain! Stop in this week and get your copy before they are all gone. Happy Knitting!
