This wonderfully textured, high contrast baby book will delight and entertain all babies (even the grown up ones) and features an owl, a heart, a swan and a rabbit. Worked in DK yarn, the book measures 14" x 8" (35 x 20cm) unfolded or 7" x 8" (17.5 x 20cm) folded. You will need 150g (300m) of DK yarn in your main colour (MC) and 50g (100m) of various contrasting colours (CC). Other yarns may be used but finished size will vary. The colours used in example are indicated in brackets, throughout the pattern, where MC and CC are mentioned. You may substitute any colours as desired - an ideal opportunity to use up some scraps! When choosing, it is useful to remember that babies are attracted to contrasting colours! You will also need a 3.50mm hook, a needle for neatening ends and a small toy squeaker (optional).

My real name is Thomasina but most people just call me Tammy. I've loved crochet since I was a child, when someone bought me the Ladybird Learn to Crochet book for Christmas. I tried to teach myself, and failed, so many times before it clicked. But, when it did, my parents couldn't have been happier! No longer did I moan about having nothing to do.....a copy of Golden Hands and I was no trouble for days. As I got older, I worked my way through most of the crafts in those magazines, (which I still have today), but crochet and sewing were the only ones to capture my imagination completely. Back in the 80s, pregnant with my eldest daughter, I suddenly had a reason to crochet again - bonnets, booties, matinee jackets and no end of blankets awaited her arrival; it was something I picked up and put down many times over the years that followed. It wasn't until the birth of baby number 5 (last year), that I started writing patterns for the things I made - I guess being teased by my family that I might get old and forget them was the prod I needed ;) The patterns I bring you now are a mixture of both old and new designs - I hope you find something you like.
