"Vintage Knits for Modern Babies "presents twenty-five vintage-inspired patterns from the stylish baby knitwear label, Shescraftyknits.com. Owner and designer Hadley Fierlinger shares her lovingly crafted collection of hand-knitted, heirloom-quality garments for infants and toddlers aged six months to three years. From caps, cardigans, and mittens to booties, bonnets, and blankets-each pattern features delicate period details hearkening back to the 1930s, '40s, and '50s while offering modern comfort and a contemporary preference for natural and organic yarns. This is a delightful gift for mothers-to-be, grandmothers, godmothers, aunties, and others, offering a full range of keepsake projects at proficiency levels for beginner, intermediate, and experienced knitters.
“Hadley Fierlinger’s book is a celebration of babies, children, and families through knitting. Her personal anecdotes and memories, and those of her friends and customers, add to the cozy, time-honored feel of the book. Beautiful photography illustrates this nostalgic look back at knitting traditions of the past while showcasing a stylish look forward to modern interpretations of classic patterns.”
