Baby Blueprint Crochet

Robyn Chachula's second book is another example of her wealth of talents: each item in this book is imaginative, stylish, eminently practical, and with instructions that are clear as day.  We've all seen  thousands of baby wearables, cute as can be, but Robyn has a very original approach. Her toddler clothes have unusual constructions, color combos, embellishments, and styles, and are clearly informed by her experiences as a new mom. Each one is adorable, and they look like they can be easily put on, washed, and cared for.  Projects include sweaters, a jumper, a couple of zip-up vests for boys, a robot toy, boots with a sole, a mobile with dangling elephants, slippers, socks, hats, and blankets. As expected, each pattern is accompanied by beautiful diagrams. The clean, unfussy layout from Interweave helps make this a highly recommended volume.
