I am honored to be the first stop in the blog tour for a brand-new e-book called “From Mama With Love.” A collection of designers, all of whom have children under the age of three years, created this collection with their own kids in mind. You’ll recognize their names: Connie Chang Chinchio, Tanis Gray, Margaux Hufnagel, Melissa LaBarre, and Kate Gagnon Osborn. Their e-book collection premiered a few days ago and includes 15 patterns for young children (three by each designer).
Exactly what will you find in this collection?
Two baby blanket patterns (this one is called Antonia’s Blanket, by Tanis Gray):
and this is Petunia’s Blanket, by Kate Gagnon Osborn:
three adorable hats (this is the Debonair Hat by Margaux Hufnagel):
four vest patterns (all of them pretty much unisex), including the Callum Vest, by Tanis Gray:
and five sweaters. The Velvet Hoodie is shown with a flounced edge but can also be knit with a plain edge:
Tanis Gray’s adorable Ronan Sweater features bright colorwork:
and Melissa LaBarre’s Viviane Cardigan is knit in the round, with a cute yoke:
There’s also a knit cover for one of those baby pillows known as a “Boppy”:
Sizes vary from pattern to pattern; most run from newborn through at least 24 months, and some continue on through 4, 5 or even 10 years. The collection is now available for $24.95 on Ravelry; individual patterns will be sold beginning October 1. It’s a charming collection just right for the little ones in your life….
