Item description for Kids: A Knitter's Dozen (A Knitter's Dozen series) by Elaine Rowley & Rick Mondragon...
Patterns from more than two decades of Knitter's Magazine are presented in this collection of irresistible hand knits for boys and girls. The designs represent a selection of the best the magazine has to offer from its back issues, some of which have been largely unavailable since first published. Ranging in skill from beginner to prize winner, knitters can outfit young ones from head to toe with hats, socks, and everything in between. In addition to photos of finished projects, detailed illustrations guide knitters through each part of the more complicated steps, and the techniques used in the designs are explained in a handy appendix. The outfits are styled to fit and flatter children from ages two through 10, and whether it's dresses, cardigans, or caps, the playful patterns in this showcase will keep the purl rolling.

A very good knitting book for children Jan 11, 2007
This is one purchase I didn't regret. Although the book is small in size all the designs are very nice and I would like to do most of them. The instructions are very good with schematics. It has 19 patterns the first is a top down raglan sweater in two versions one striped yoke pattern and the other in broad stripes allover, for boys but of course with different colors it will be suitable for girls also. The second sweater is sweater with vertical stripes knit in one piece. There is also a cardigan that is made in made in one piece also. There also patterns for accessories for a pair of socks, a cute jester's hat a bag with a sun motif and a pillow with the same motif that could be coordinated with the sun sweater. This sweater has a very clever idea the motif is knitted on a separate placket that buttons on top of the sweater and there are 7 more motifs that can be knitted so the sweater can have a different appearance each time a child wears it.
