Garter stitch plain and simple is for all knitters who love the elegance and simplicity of garter stitch on babies. This set of 8 patterns gives you the basics for a beautiful layette - all that is left is for you to knit a large square for a blanket. All garments are worked using the same yarn weight and needle size - if you have yarn leftover from knitting the sweater you can knit the beanie! Patterns are accessible enough to be used by the experienced beginner. All garments have minimal seaming - using different construction techniques to achieve this aim, photo tutorials for the cable cast on, provisional cast on, pick up hem and mattress stitch are included. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl cast on cast off (bind off) decrease (instructions included) increase (instructions included) GAUGE 24 sts x 50 rows = 10 cm (4 ins) over garter stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 0-3, 3-6, 6-12, 18, 24 months SUGGESTED YARN 166 meters of Sport weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Debbie Bliss Cashmerino baby

I love designing knitwear for babies and older kids too, I'm inspired by the world around me, whether it's the green bush covered hills where I live, or the bright city lights and sparkling harbor. I try to find a way to incorporate traditional, modern and whimsical elements into every garment I design. Children need to be comfortable and relaxed in their clothing, they need the opportunity to jump and run and paint without restriction. I try to design with these qualities in mind.
