Comments about Vintage Baby Knits:
This book is a real gem. The patterns are exceptionally well written, interesting and adorable. I knitted the Jasper Diamond Hoodie and it came out beautifully. The diamond pattern matched up perfectly on the shoulders and sleeve seams. I also knitted the bunny blanket which is very easy but looks complicated. I plan to knit many more items from this wonderful book.
