One-Stitch Baby Knits features 25 simple patterns for practical but adorable baby knits, designed for small babies aged 0-18 months. Each garment is made entirely with the garter stitch—the easiest stitch in knitting—making these projects accessible to beginners and quick and simple for more experienced knitters.
Newbies will appreciate Pierce’s friendly reassurances that yes, mistakes happen and one can always start again. Patterns for a geometric blanket or a pom-pom hat can be stitched up quickly after just a bit of practice. However, the book isn’t only for absolute beginners. More experienced knitters looking for last-minute gift ideas will find patterns for a teddy bear romper and an “under the sea”–themed hooded jacket, among other more demanding projects. Every pattern included yields simple but precious items that should have plenty of appeal for new parents.—Publishers Weekly
Clear instructions and illustrations.—Ella Heart Book Reviews
What a cute book of baby knits! The projects in this book are simple enough for a determined beginner but hold a decent amount of visual interest. Everything is worked flat and in garter stitch, for those who are not into purling or circular knitting. It would be easy for more experienced knitters to adjust these patterns and add in some visual interest that may have been sacrificed for simplicity.—City University of New York - Nicole Williams, Librarian
