Item description for Vogue Knitting on the Go: Baby Knits Two (Vogue Knitting on the Go!) by Trisha Malcolm...
Rompers and booties and cute animal designs: there's nothing more adorable than babies' outfits, and these small and precious garments make easy-to-carry and quick-to-knit projects. That's why Vogue's first Knitting on the Go: Baby Knits collection was so popular---and why this follow-up will absolutely entice knitters and warm their hearts as the needles click along. What could be sweeter than a tiny "faux fur" coat? Amazingly, it's simple to make, with only a few stitches and rows; the thick yarn does most of the work. Baby will look completely endearing in an Origami Jacket, Giraffe Cardigan and Hat, Aran Pullover, or Bonnet and Booties. Other practical and good-looking accessories include the Felted Baby Bag to carry it all and a Gingham Blanket.

Reviews - What do customers think about Vogue Knitting on the Go: Baby Knits Two (Vogue Knitting on the Go!)?
Not a great book, but okay... Apr 1, 2007
This book has a couple of projects (baby oragami jacket and baby bunny jacket) that are very darling and I have made many times. My major beef with it, especially on the baby bunny jacket, is that no time was taken to produce simpler instructions when there was clearly an opportunity to do so. No one wants to seam 7 pieces together, pick up and knit miles of i-cord and tuck in a zillion ends for a jacket that will fit a child for 6 months, if that. Over time, I have modified the patterns to eliminate seams and ends and it's definitely possible. Maybe Vogue should come out with "Baby Knits Two: Patterns Revisited and Rethought".
Some cute projects Aug 19, 2004
The beauty of this book is its tiny size and quickness of projects. The first few pages are dedicated to a quick review of knitting, and then the fun begins. Items include a romper and overalls, some sweaters, cute-as-a-button moccasins, a felted baby bag, baby hats, booties, stuffed bears wearing pajamas, and a blanket. I feel that there's a project for everyone here: they have cable work, felting, stripes, color work, one sweater is a classic Aran Isle style and another uses the Fair Isle technique, and there's also a traditional baby-sized argyle vest. A few items are clearly for girls, like a ruffle-edged dress, but most are unisex. Depending on the project, there are items here to fit 3-24 months.
