Sweet Baby Crochet Book Review
Author: Sandy Scoville and Denise Black
Number of Pages: 96 pages
Number of Projects: 23 projects; some projects have more than one pattern associated with them (ex: hat & booties, dress and bonnet, etc.)
Types of Projects: Everything baby… (dresses, jacket, bonnet, bibs, booties, hat, sweaters & blankets/afghans)
Difficulty: Easy, Intermediate, Experienced – The majority of the patterns are listed as intermediate, but there is definitely a good mix of easy & intermediate, with two labeled experienced.
Yarn Used: #2, #3, #4 & #5
First Impression: Most of these would make great baby shower gifts.
My Favorite Project Pick: Party Ruffles Dress – Dainty, yet practical. Beautiful dress for new baby girl.
Party Ruffles Dress
Review: The very first thing that stood out to me was that the patterns with sizes are color coded. I love this! I eliminates the need for trying to figure out which stitch count goes with which size. Just remember what color you’re crocheting. Perfect!
The garment projects come in 3 sizes (6, 12, & 18 months). Not all projects come in all 3 sizes. Blankets range in size, but are all infant/toddler size. The smallest is 33″ x 36″ – the largest is 44″ x 50″. are condensed well and written in the easiest form possible. If you like to know exactly which yarns are used for projects (and not just what weight yarn is used) there is a Yarn Information section in the back of the book. Leisure Arts has included general information (gauge, terms, abbreviations), as well as basic stitch visuals you may need.
Bonus: There are over 2 dozen links in the ebook that will take you to online video tutorials. I believe this is an invaluable tool for those who are visual learners.

If you’re looking for a variety of baby projects that stretch you a little beyond the “easy” category, this would be a good book to try. You can check out more pics, or pic up your copy here: Sweet Baby Crochet on Amazon.
