Zoe Mellor pattern and yarns
I just bought the french version of the book Nursery Knits: 25 Easy-Knit Designs For Clothes, Toys And Decorations
( cover of the book on this link )
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/089...943029?ie=UTF8

I love all the colors of the patterns that is in the book, the problem is that in the french edition they do not give the brand name of the yarn someone knows if it is the same in the english book ?

These are the pattens I want to knit and the yarn I need

- 100 % mercerized cotton 26 sts 36 rows 3mm needle pattern is on this link

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/cus...ndex=0#gallery

the other pattern is on this photo

http://site.voila.fr/filenaiguille/c..._zoemillor.jpg

- 100 % merinos 28 stitches 36 rows 3mm needle.

I will appreciate all your suggestions for these yarns !

Thank you !

Michelle

You're most welcome. As I said, I'm hugely thrilled to be able to help someone here. usually I'm just sidling past in awe :D I had just taken the book out the other day, having bought it on impulse and wondering if I'll ever make anything out of it :thinking: Finding knitting and crochet books here is so rare that I thought it miraculous someone actually had the same one :D
