I recently purchased this book at ACMoore and it has so many WONDERFUL easy patterns for knitting children's sweaters. This is the BEST one I've purchased yet. :cheering: :cheering: They are easy patterns but still very stylish.
See the book here..

Sigh...another one for my wishlist. Ah, to be wealthy enough to never have to wait to buy knitterly things. :teehee:

Those on the cover are cute! The big draw for me here are the words, "Technical: Knit in the ROUND in ONE PIECE with NO SEWING." :cheering:

I purchased that book last Fall, and I agree, the patterns are nice. I knit up one of the vests for a Christmas present in KnitPicks Swish superwash and it came out lovely. (I don't have a photo, sorry - still waiting on the mom to take one!)

Thanks for the review of the book! I've seen that one before online, but haven't seen it in person to flip through it. Now it's definitely on my wish list.

I may have to place a Knit Picks (http://www.knitpicks.com/Kids'+Knitted+Sweaters+%26+More_BD30777.html) order soon. Love their prices on books!

I bought the book a little over a month ago, and have already knitted the Mariposa Blocks sweater on page 12. See the picture here:

I have started the Ridged Cardigan on page 8 for my granddaughter and will post a picture when it is done.

The directions are so clear, and the pictures are adorable!
