The Hand-knitted Nursery
35 gorgeous designs for furnishings, clothes, and toys
Knitting provides a great way of injecting style and colour into interiors while also adding warmth and comfort, making it the perfect method of decorating a nursery. Here Melanie Porter presents a collection of hand-knitted nursery room projects, as well as baby clothes and toys. The book is divided into two sections: For Baby’s Room, which is inspired by vintage colour palettes, and Toddler’s Room, which includes more contemporary and vibrant designs. Discover patterns to cover baskets, hooks and coat hangers, as well as blankets for both mother and baby, rugs and cushions. Make gorgeous decorations, from a mobile and hanging pompoms to letter wall art and embroidery hoop pinboards. Classic baby knits are included, too – booties, hats and mittens – and toys, such as knitted blocks and even a rocking sheep! The comprehensive techniques section covers the basics for beginners and acts as a helpful reference guide for experienced knitters.
