At every lecture and workshop she has given in recent years, Debbie Bliss has been asked why her stunning childrens` knitwear designs are not available in adult sizes. Now she has responded to these appeals with her first collection to cover the whole age range- from babies right through to adults. Many of th designs in this exciting new book include patterns for a complete size range-so a classic guernsey sweater,for example,can be knitted for a 2-year old or an adult man. A number of the designs also include variations and different colourways-a woman`s cabled sweater,for instance,is alsofeatured as a child`s cardigan using the same stitch patterning.

Combining the softest luxury yarns with irresistible designs, she has created a truly desirable collection of hand knits for the newborn baby. A snug blanket is a must-have baby accessory and Debbie has included a choice of seven different styles. Each project is a beautiful design in its own right, whilst others can be made to accompany another project - for example, the garter stitch Striped Blanket is a wonderfully simple piece to knit but to make it extra special you can accompany it with the Striped Mouse. Likewise, you could team the Blanket Stitch Blanket with the matching bootees and toy bunny. Debbie has created a collection of exquisite toys that would take pride of place in any child's toybox - from the quintessential teddy bear to wonderfully tactile Building Blocks and a Little Bird toy that echoes the design of a squidgy, soft Big Bird Beanbag. The book is illustrated with over 75 colour photographs from leading children's fashion photographer Ulla Nyeman.
