Lovely Little Knits for Girls – Book Review | Celtic Cast On

I recently had the chance to review a sweet knitting book called

Lovely Little Knits for Girls by Vibe Ulrik Sondergaard

 I must admit I was intrigued by this book when I saw the title and read that it was for older children.  Lots of patterns go up to size two and then stop but this book contains 20 knitting patterns geared towards toddlers to seven year olds.

The book is split into five categories

Sweaters, Cardigans, Dresses and Tops, Skirts and Snoods, and Charming Accessories!

The patterns are beautifully portrayed with a very modern feel.

From lacey cardigan’s, puffy sleeves, cabled dresses, textured skirts and light and airy accessories there really is a little taste of  everything in this book.  Some projects are rated for experienced knitters but there are some other less advanced pattern thrown in the mix too.

The projects use typical UK yarns like Rowan, Louisa Harding and Debbie Bliss but Sondergaard  also gives some tips for substitution where needed.

I’m honestly not sure that these patterns would really suit many two year olds or be very practical for that matter. I would say that 90% would be geared more towards the older girls, although the Isabel Cable and Little Branch dress has T written all over it!  *How I wish I had more than the cover photo to show you* I think I’ll be knitting that one up for Fall.

Overall I think it is a beautiful knitting book that might be just the ticket for your the little fashionista in your life.

Lovely Little Knits for Girls is published by Tauton Press and  will be released on February 21st 2012.

Thanks to Tauton Press for providing me with an advanced copy to review!
