Knitting for children has many special pleasures. Because a child's garment is small, you can get exciting results quickly and cheaply. And there is plenty of scope for bright colours, original ideas and variety.

Alice Starmore has here designed a collection of knitwear
to suit all types and ages of children - and to suit all knitters, from beginners to people who want a challenge.

Taking their inspiration from the traditions of countries as far apart as Iceland and Arabia, the patterns "are highly varied and original. From lacy summer dresses to chunky multi-coloured sweaters, there is something for everyone.

Every pattern has its own colour photograph, and complete charts and . instructions for a wide range of sizes.

Here is a storehouse of beautiful patterns to make for your children, your grandchildren, or your friends' children from their earliest years onwards.
