Melissa Leapman is back with a brand new collection of InstaKnits just for baby!
In the original InstaKnits she delivered a variety of quick-to-knit, Instagram-worthy patterns for adults, but what about all of the adorable knits for babies? In InstaKnits for Baby she has designed blankets, sweaters, hats, booties, toys, and more in bright pops of color--perfect for any new baby's close-up!
Patterns are organized in sections by the time it takes to knit them, from less than five hours to just over 20 hours, so you can plan your knitting accordingly and know that your gift will be ready when baby arrives. There are 30 patterns in all, sized from newborn to 24 months. Baby shower this weekend? Better stick with a Pixie Hat, Stuffed Froggy, or something else from the "less than five hours" chapter. Have a month or two? Then you've got time for the Sunny Topper, Giraffe Blanket, or Koala Lovey. Insta-Knits for Baby is sure to become your favorite resource for all those last-minute baby gift ideas!
