Baby Blueprint Crochet

I pre order any crochet and knit books from Amazon. Sometimes the books are months away from publication when I order and I forget all about them as I did with this book. It was a nice surprise when the postman delivered it this morning.

It is Baby Blueprint Crochet by Robyn Chachula. I have not had chance to read the book yet but thought that I would share it's contents with you. One main reason that I like this book is that the crochet is close stitches whereas a lot of crochet is very lacy and openwork. The boy patterns in this book are ones that I would crochet as they are quite 'manly' in their design and stitch.

There is also a crochet diaper cover that I have forgotten to take a photo off.

I think that my favourite has to be the cover jacket.The title of the book is a bit misleading as the sizes go up to a toddler size 26/28" chest and the designs are more for a slightly older baby rather than a newborn.

As there are so many photos I will limit my words today. I have finished the back of my Sister in Law's sweater but still have a lot to crochet before it is finished.

Thanks for sharing those lovely patterns with us Jan. I can see that you will be making quite a lot of them. It makes a change to see some boy patterns that are suitable for boys. Can't wait to see your finished crochet work, as it is sure to be lovely as usual.

I am thinking I need to get this book. I have said before that I have no babies to crochet for, but so many of these look like they could be adapted into other patterns.
