Book review: Adorable Baby Knits by Jody Long

Adorable Baby Knits by  Jody Long
Takes a while for the book to load in due to high content of the photography but well worth it.
Talks about different aspects of making the outfits-if you can substitute yarns, needles needed, stitches explained and glossary of terms.
First project starts out with blocks and skill level shown and charts so you can work the rows. Not very complicated and easy to follow along.
Next project is booties and they look and are easy to make. Abbreviations and stitches used are described in detail and row by row instructions are given for many different sizes.
Every pattern has its own photograph, highly detailed and close up.
Such adorable color combinations and great garments to make for any child living in any climate.
Acknowledgements and sources for supplies is listed at the end.
Liked this book because of the variety of patterns and stitches used. My favorite to try would be the rosette blanket so I could make it larger or smaller sizes.
Love the cabled items as those are the ones that draw me to a book. Something for everybody, boys and girls alike, to start out with in this book.
Received a digital copy for review via Dover Publications via Netgalley and this is my honest opinion.
