A perennial favorite for children's knits is the baby blanket, slow to be outgrown and sure to offer great comfort.
This book, another in the Vogue Knitting on the Go series, presents 24 baby blanket patterns spanning a variety of styles, techniques, and skill levels. You'll find chevron lace, entrelac, fair-isle, floral patterns, figural motifs, and easy patchwork patterns.
The book's small size means easy portability, although baby blankets aren't generally as portable projects as, say, socks.
The skill range for these patterns is intermediate to expert, with only three patterns at the Very Easy, Very Vogue level.
Getting with the Times
My one peeve with most knitting books today holds true for this one as well. At the end of the book, you'll find a two-page list of yarn company names and addresses.
