Description

What better way to pamper mom or new baby than with a handknit expression of love? In this delightful eBook, renowned British knitwear designer Louisa Harding offers an inspired collection of patterns for mother and baby's first 18 months together, created with organically grown and naturally produced yarns.

Beautifully photographed, Harding's latest book of clothes and accessories has a modern feel with elegant, simple flair. A unique "bump" sweater gives the mother-to-be room to grow, and inventive nursing sweaters for the new mother are convenient and stylish.

From an adorable dress, chunky jacket, and kimono sweater to charming knitted toys and herb-scented pillows, this collection seamlessly combines adorable shapes, cuddly textures, and environmentally friendly materials. You'll find patterns for essential baby accessories, including hats, mittens, blankets, and booties, and the simplest pattern for knitted toys.

The projects are designed for the beginning to average knitter, so new mothers and grandparents-to-be or friends wanting to offer a nurturing gift can make exquisite finished items with ease. The cot blanket is a perfect group project - each person can knit one square, to be assembled for a special gift - and small items like mittens and booties are quickly completed and instantly cherished.

With step-by-step instructions and helpful illustrations, the Natural Knits for Babies and Moms eBook is a perfect pattern book for embracing all things natural and organic as you welcome a new baby—every knitted stitch will pass on love and affection.

Excellent book! Review by Brianne
Rating

I really enjoy this book. It's got a variety of cute, unique patterns to try for baby and mom - my personal favourite is the pregnancy sweater with ribbons on the sides to adjust for belly size. I also love how the patterns can be changed depending on gender. Patterns are written in an easy-to-understand way and provide lots of pictures. Very happy with this!
