What to Knit When You're Expecting, Pattern Book
Knitting Patterns for Simple Mittens, Blankets, Hats & Sweaters for Your Baby
Author Nikki Van De Car spent the months before her daughter's birth knitting constantly to keep her hands busy and to help the time before her arrival pass more quickly. She knitted everything from sweaters and hats to burp cloths and stuffed animals. Over the course of the following year, she learned which items were actually useful, and which sat in a drawer, never to be worn.
The 28 patterns collected in 'What to Knit When You're Expecting', for babies aged from 0 to 12 months, are the best of these, and include booties, mittens, bibs and blankets, as well as sweaters, hats and cardigans. All are relatively simple, so they can be knit while your mind is elsewhere, and all are immensely practical.
Once you've got a handle on your delivery from the stork, flip through this adorable assortment of 30 knitting projects for your bundle of joy. This pattern book is organized according to where you are in your pregnancy. The projects range from first trimester projects (which are moderately advanced, since there are months to finish) to second trimester (when most parents can determine the baby's gender and prepare for a boy or girl), to third trimester quickies, when time is short. The booties, bibs, toys, blankets, and clothing will be one-of-a-kind items, fit to welcome your special person into the world.
