Crochet One-Skein Wonders for Babies

Crochet One-Skein Wonders® for Babies: 101 Projects for Infants & Toddlers - Judith Durant, Edie Eckman

I picked this up originally thinking I had a few pregnant friends and co-workers who would probably appreciate something cute and homemade, and one skein of yarn is about the length of my attention span.


I, er, may possibly have just made myself an elephant so far. And one for my dog.


The patterns are cute and there's actually a lot of variety. I tend towards stuffed toys when crocheting, so more patterns in that vein are always appreciated. There's a lot more here than just that, though, and things are well-organized by type and have nice pictures to represent what you're doing also.


The patterns are easy-to-read and include details for the quirkier stitches (yes, I'm still basic enough at this to consider anything beyond single/double stitches "quirky", and I'm okay with that), and it's easy to tell what is likely to be beyond me versus just pushing me a little bit, though some of that might be a skill requiring practice.


Eventually I will probably get around to at least making a stuffed animal for someone else, but even without that I'm having quite a bit of fun with this book.
