Stock up on patterns for baby showers, birthdays and Christenings with this comprehensive and adorable collection. There are 55 designs from a range of different designers, and all of them will make precious gifts for little ones. Diane Simpson's Frilly Dress has to be the most beautiful crocheted dress we've ever seen, with its pretty stitch patterns and swirly skirt. The Hooded Baby Gown by Joyce Nordstrom will make a practical unisex gift, and for newborns try the Little Lamb Set by Dorothy Warrell, consisting of a blanket, pillow and soft toy. The projects are all rated as either easy or intermediate, but despite this most of the patterns look quite fancy or complex, so are certain to wow. This is a jam-packed book that you'll get a lot of mileage from over the years.-Knit Today
