Reviews - What do customers think about Creature Comforts: Cozy Knits for Wee Ones?
The Grandkids will love it! Aug 12, 2008
At last! Knits for "Wee Ones" without "wee" needles! I have never liked to use size 2 or 3 needles which most baby and toddler patterns call for. This book has great designs but it gives you the basic patterns first, and colors to please everyones taste.
Many motifs but only 2 top patterns Mar 11, 2008
I was expecting each knit to be a different pattern and was surprised to see only 2 types of patterns for tops. At the beginning of the book, there is 1 pattern for a cardigan, a pull-over and a hat/mittens (6,12 and 18mth sizes). You are basically directed to knit the particular pattern and add the mofifs as you go. So, for example, if you don't like the pullover pattern a significant proportion of the book is not useable, or you need to adapt the motifs to a pattern from another book. Adapting the motifs to a design you do like (or know that fits) is probably not a difficult task and the motifs and colours are sweet. There is a nice range of mofif styles, with the cover picture a good indication of the types of designs in the book.
Basics Made Beautiful May 12, 2007
This book is wonderful. It offers very basic patterns for sweaters, hats, booties, then offers the variations in design and color patterns. I now have knitted many of the patterns in this book (even adding my own variations) and the patterns are amazingly accurate, well written, and explained simply and understandably. Anyone who is looking for a book that gives simple pattern instructions, suitable for an ambitious beginner, with memorable designs that make you look like an expert, should pick this one.

Patterns you MUST knit Jan 11, 2007
This book contains so many patterns that you will want to knit you will have a diffiicult time selecting the one to do first. Each is unique with some enhancement on each. I want to knit them all even though I have no one in mind (at the present) to give them to.
