One Stitch Baby Knits 22 Easy Patterns for Adorable Garments and Accessories Using Garter Stitch

Val Pierce. IMM Lifestyle, $17.99 trade paper (144p) ISBN 978-1-5048-0110-2
Pierce’s appealing book is the ideal resource for beginning or aspiring knitters ready to make something more interesting than a scarf and intent on creating something for a newborn. It doesn’t matter if one’s never picked up a knitting needle before, as the opening section provides all the instruction needed to start. Each of the 22 patterns, which run from burp cloths to cozy cardigans, uses knitting’s most basic stitch, the garter, and is accompanied by clear instructions and helpful photos. Newbies will appreciate Pierce’s friendly reassurances that yes, mistakes happen and one can always start again. Patterns for a geometric blanket or a pom-pom hat can be stitched up quickly after just a bit of practice. However, the book isn’t only for absolute beginners. More experienced knitters looking for last-minute gift ideas will find patterns for a teddy bear romper and an “under the sea”–themed hooded jacket, among other more demanding projects. Every pattern included yields simple but precious items that should have plenty of appeal for new parents. (June)
