Designs for Kids: Hand Knits and Things (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Give your children a treat with some great design from knitwear designer, Lucinda Guy. In scintillating colourways, "Designs for Kids: Handknits and Things" offers a range of 25 fantastic and original hand-knitted designs for girls and boys aged 2 to 5 years - with something to knit for every season. Rowan's beautifully soft, fresh and wearable cotton, wool and mohair yarns, bring Lucinda's designs to life, and the gorgeous illustrations by Francois Hall create a wonderful foil for the stunning designs. Birds, butterflies, animals and flowers pepper the pages, both on and off the knitted pieces. Dresses for girls, funky hats, toys and cuddly blankets form the basis of a great collection - and the designs are split into Spring, Summer Autumn and Winter. In the Spring collection create a beautiful lightweight Happy Hen Sweater in Rowan Wool Cotton - a beautiful medium-weight wool/cotton blend yarn, perfect for taking the chill off. The Summer collection features an adorable Birdie design - a cute and cuddly toy bird who loves the summer sun! Birdie is made from Rowan Cotton Glace - a wonderful medium-weight cotton yarn, and comes complete with piecing instructions.

Autumn winds will have trouble making children shiver with the snugly Dougie Dog Hat and Scarf made from Rowan 4ply Soft - a great lightweight wool yarn made from merino wool. The design comes complete with a pattern guide. In the Winter collection create a light and fluffy Fireside Blanket perfect for keeping warm and toastie in the winter chill, made from Rowan Kid Classic yarn, a gorgeous medium-weight mohair-mix yarn. This book offers just the kind of things that children will treasure and remember, long after they have grown up - a modern heirloom! All of the handknits come complete with a sizing chart, a requirements list and full pattern instructions and charts - plus piecing instructions for the toys. Additional information includes: Knitting Techniques; Yarn Information; and Buying Yarn.
