Does the barista at your coffee bar serve your kid a steamed milk with a dash of cinnamon--just the way he likes it? Is your baby already a regular at the neighborhood indie bookstore? If so, your budding bohemian deserves a wardrobe that suits his or her creative lifestyle. For children's knits with style and attitude, look no further. Boho Baby Knits contains more than 30 designs for clothes, toys, and accessories that are so cool, you'll wish they came in your size.
Knitters will love the fun literary references, punk rock allusions, and beatnik musings that inspire these patterns for newborns to four-year-olds, and kids won't be able to get enough of these bold, colorful, and unique projects. Clear, step-by-step instructions, easy-to-read charts and diagrams, and dozens of four-color photographs ensure happy results. From graphic leg warmers and a folk festival frock to a bohemian striped boatneck and a Western-style jacket, Boho Baby Knits keeps kids dressed like the free spirits they are.
