From Underground Crafter 10/8/2018:Very British Toddler Knits: 25 Classic Designs for 1 to 6 Year Olds is a delightfully presented pattern collection by Susan Campbell. I liked this book from the moment I opened it because on the cover flap, there are rulers printed in both inches and centimeters. What a cool idea and a great way to get started with your garment knitting journey (by checking your gauge, that is!).The book opens with a Table of Contents which is followed by a Project Gallery with small photos of each project. In Susan’s introduction, she mentions that she is a mother, stepmother, grandmother, or stepgrandmother to 27, so she is a veteran in the design of baby clothes. She says, “I’ve been designing small person’s knitwear for a very long time — no design of mine will have to be squeezed over a child’s head and no baby will have to be stripped almost naked to facilitate a nappy change.” I loved that she emphasized the practicality of her designs because they are also beautiful!The book doesn’t include pattern difficulty levels, but I would described it as best for intermediate knitters, although a confident and adventurous beginner could make most of the projects in Very British Toddler Knits. The book assumes you know how to knit and read patterns; it’s a pattern collection, not an instructional book. The designs are adorable and the photography is inspiring. If you like to knit for toddlers, I think you’ll get a lot of inspiration from this book.From Jessie at Home 2/12/2019:Very British Toddler Knits is full of charming knit patterns for your favorite little ones. These patterns are well-written and feature several sets of patterns that can be mixed and matched. The first really nifty detail I noticed about Very British Toddler Knits was that the front cover flap has both an inch and a centimeter ruler printed on it. As I took my initial flip through the book I fell for the patterns. They are very classy, and several of them include some fabric details as well. There are many patterns that can be used together or separate, so you can decide just how many pieces and layers you want. The little details are all really neat! There are mice with dimensional tails, top tie hats, flowers, bows and all sorts of cuteness!
