There is nothing more special than being
able to make something for a child.
A child gives you so much more when you make
them something with love.

Anna & Heidi are from Norway and have
their own yarn shop with their own
brand of yarn "Pickles".

They have taken their expansive skills
and created a book full of fun and interesting
patterns that are good to make
and good for children to wear.

Some of the designs are just for babies
but others are for a wide age range of children.
I think that's what makes this book even more invaluable.
You aren't just getting patterns for babies or toddlers
you are getting patterns that can be used
through the ages.

The patterns are ones that can be worn time and
again and won't look dated.
They are practical as well as functional.

The projects are fun and I love the fact that
some of them have more than one use;
The Magic Poncho
is a prime example of this.
It can be worn as a poncho as well as a skirt.
It even comes with a matching hat.

The projects vary in skill level so everything
from an easy pattern upwards is covered.

I love the fact that they don't try and push
a specific yarn to use.
Some will just say it needs 100% cotton DK
and colours light blue & grey.

Each of the patterns are in written format and
really easy to follow.
They are broken down into their different elements
which makes it easier to follow the pattern.

Their are patterns for both girls and boys
and a number of them are suitable for both.
An example of the age ranges of one of
the patterns are;
1 yr, 2-3, 4-5, 6, 8, 10,12
With so many ages covered you are sure
to use the patterns time and again.

I can honestly say there isn't a single project
within this book that I wouldn't make!
