Item description for Candy Babies: Cute Crochet For Wee Ones by Candi Jensen...

Candi Jensen, whose adorable designs were featured in Candy Tots and Candy Blankies, is back with something special for babies. From a too-cute denim-inspired jacket and a delicate wrap cardigan to whimsical South-American poncho and faux-shearling hat and booties, this stylish collection of designs will fit the younger set just fine. Beautiful full-color photographs and basic instructions accompany each project, but don't be afraid to experiment with different yarns and colors. Warm baby up in a Pastel Parfait hat and vest set, inspired by vintage fashions; dress an All-American Girl in a red-white-and blue tank top and matching shorts; and put a little princess in the pink with a pint-sized cardigan. A complete list of yarn resources is provided in the back. The author lives in Oakland, CA.

Reviews - What do customers think about Candy Babies: Cute Crochet For Wee Ones?

Adorable YES - Pattern errors/ issues?  Oct 23, 2007
I purchased this book along with the complementary publication "Candy Blankies" because of the adorable pictures and different layouts. The pictures alone are inspiring. However, when I tried to make a few of the projects (by following the directions), I became frustrated with some seeming errors in the patterns as well as sizing issues (yes I check my guage).

For example I made the hat on the cover of the book along with the coordinating jacket. For the jacket pattern I was frustrated with the directions for the finishing work. Sewing a zipper into that was not easy and in the end I made some cute buttons and a loop fastening instead. For the hat pattern it seems like the stitch she used in the picture was single crochet, yet the pattern calls for Hdc entirely.... the hat was so tall that it almost fit my head! I ended up ripping out and adjusting the number of rows to make it a more reasonable size.

All in all, the clothing is adorable and easy to produce.... I just wish the patterns were a little more reproducible.
Candy Babies crochet book  Sep 26, 2007
Absolutely adorable patterns in this book! The yarn they recommend you use can be a little pricey, but it can be subsituted with other yarns.
Easy and uncomplicated patterns  Jan 11, 2007
This book has a nice variety of crochet patterns, updated, in style for babies. The instructions are clear and any one who can crochet can create one of the delightful pieces in the book. The pictures are a must see, and the authors choice in yarns is very tasteful. I made a pair of the Ugg Booties and was thrilled with the outcome.
Was she in the dark when she picked the colors?  Jul 30, 2006
I know, I each his/her own. but I'd really like to buy Ms Jensen a color wheel for Christmas.

There are some cute designs in here, but quite a few left me cold. That may have just been because of the really strange color combos Ms Jensen selected.

There are also a few designs that will require additional sewing to complete, which did not make me too happy either. If I wanted to sew baby outfits, I'd buy a sewing book.

For the few cute designs that are included, I'd save my money and look for the book at the library or Half Price Books, etc.

Single Crochet  May 10, 2006
The color suggestions are nice, and the babies are adorable. But it's mostly single crochet with little pattern variation. If you can adapt patterns, it makes a good reference book, as all the schematics are included.

Perhaps I'm spoiled, as I have a Jack Frost original book... that I use to adapt to the new yarns.

As I love the author's other book, Candy Tots, I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed with this one.
