Lollipop: A Baby Knits Collection features 7 darling designs for babies from preemie up to 12 months. From a textured blanket to a simple cabled sweater, these patterns are excellent for advanced beginners to cut their teeth on, or for experienced knitters to sit back and enjoy. Our Urban Yarns shop in Lonsdale, North Vancouver had the honour of hosting the first public trunk show and book-signing for this collection, and it has been flying off our shelves ever since.
Six of the book's seven designs are in the affordable and top-quality worsted Cascade 220 Solids & Cascade 220 Heathers, which Urban Yarns carries in over 40 colours. A baby "cocoon" sleep sack in Cascade Eco or Cascade Eco Heathers chunky rounds out the collection and was a fan favourite at Vancouver's Knit City expo. This yarn is an Urban Yarns best-in-store for value and yardage, and is a pleasure to knit with. Yarn and needle requirements can be viewed here on Ravelry. Now to get Raquel to design an adult Cocoon!
If you don't already know Raquel Nicolau, aka Knit It Out Designs, you're going to want to catch up quick! This local Squamish BC knitter & designer has just published her second book, "Luz", extending her aesthetic of clean lines and saturated colours to adult garments.
