Giveaway: Two Books on Knitting for Little Kids


Congrats to Jowyn for winning this set!

Today’s giveaway is great for the parents and grandparents out there. It’s for two knitting books all about knitting for babies and toddlers.

One winner will receive copies of The Knitter’s Bible: Baby Knits by Laura Long and Cutest Ever Toddler Knits by Val Price.

The baby book has 25 patterns and includes fun information about the yarn choice and design decisions that will help if you want to make changes. There are also suggestions for how you might change the look of a pattern by changing the colors or adding stripes, for example.

The toddler book offers a nice range of basics for bigger kids, though I did have a problem with the sizing guidelines (or, in most cases, lack thereof) in this book. Just so you’ll know.

To be entered for a chance to win these books, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, March 23. I’d love to know what your favorite thing is to knit for babies and toddlers. I’m a huge fan of baby blankets and I love mittens and socks for toddlers for some reason (I guess because my daughter hardly ever wears sweaters, so these are quick projects I know she’ll use).

Thanks for visiting and good luck!

    My daughter’s friends are having babies. These’s book would be place for me learn baby items, so when my daughter tell us she expecting I would be knit away on baby clothes

    I love to knit little baby sweaters. Booties are too tiny for me, and blankets exceed the limits of my patience.

  7. Lorinda says

    I love knitting baby blankets and baby pods and like to let the moms choose which one they would like but right now I am making a very cute little sweater I found in the book “One Skein”. I think the new mom will love it and it has been a joy to knit. Next will be a blanket and booties too!

    My favorite thing to knit for babies is booties. There are so many cute patterns available. Really like the sound of these books. Thanks for having the contest.

  13. Andrea W. says

    I love to make little baby sweaters! I feel that every time the baby wears it I am holding him/her in my arms. What a wonderful “little give away!”

  14. says

    Reminds me of old song “Baby, baby can you feel my heart beat.” As you are knitting baby items your heart beats with love for your new baby on the way, and all the goodies you want to make for him or her. Then you start dreaming of how cute they will look in each outfit, and then how about in a different color also, and the list goes on.

  15. Theresa says

    I like making things that I can use as photo props. The photos make great one of a kind gifts for the new parents.

  16. Carmen says

    Babies grow so fast that I don’t like to make clothing. But it seems you can always use another blanket!

  17. Kim Van says

    I am a very proud 1st time grandmother!! I just can’t seem to stop knitting things for my granddaughter. Some of the patterns are so adorable and are quick to make up.

  18. Susan Samuel says

    I love knitting baby bootees, blankets and cardigans. I often visit your site for inspiration when in a blind spot. These books look amazing and could be very useful for me knitting for charity.

  19. Linda Rumsey says

    Baby blankets as they get so much use, compared to clothes which are soon outgrown! I also love knitting toys for the same reason.

  20. Andrea B says

    I like knitting baby blankets – you don’t have to worry about the baby outgrowing them!

  21. Thami B says

    I still have two big boxes of baby yarns…and 3 new babies in the family! These would be perfect!

  22. Jowyn Jenson says

    I love to knit hats and booties for babies. As they are so small they knit up quick. I love getting a project done in just a few hours.
