A Collection of Heirloom Baby Patterns for the Little One in Your Life…

eBook : 8 patterns

This collection of sweaters is inspired by the series of Choose-Your- Own-Adventure books I loved as a child. I couldn’t read them fast enough, and each crossroads was a thrilling and carefully weighed decision. Knitting has always involved the same sense of adventure for me; with a ball of yarn and a pair of knitting needles, the out- comes are endless! Whether you are following a pattern or making it up as you go along, your finished object is wholly yours, imbued with the experience that accompanied each stitch.
