The arrival of a new baby is a very special occasion and a knitted gift is a time-honoured tradition. In Simple Knits for Cherished Babies Erika Knight shows how to create baby knits that are both delightfully soft and luxurious, but also simple and modern in style. Her marvellous designs, in pure yarns such as merino wool, silk and cashmere are not only soft and gentle for a new baby’s delicate skin, they are absolutely modern in feel. They retain as their core inspiration the best of the classic patterns for baby knits – including socks and bootees, hats, cardigans and vests – but with a modern edge.
Erika’s designs are quick and simple to knit, but highly textural in feel. Even a complete novice can master most of the patterns in the book, and the simplest will take only a few hours to knit.
In a carefully chosen colour range of pastels and neutrals, these knits are the heirlooms of the future. If you are expecting a baby, or know someone who is, then this is the book to get you knitting.
