Tanis Gray’s new pattern book, 3 Skeins or Less: Modern Baby Knits, is a knitting book you will turn to time and time again for charming baby patterns that won’t break the bank to knit. With a generous size range up to 5T, there are twenty-three knitting patterns for boys and girls: sweaters, blanket patterns, toys, and hats.
This brand new pattern book, available May 16th on Amazon, is so well laid out, with bright and shiny photos, stitch guides, easy to read and understand schematics and charts, clear enough even for the newest knitter. For mothers, it promises to be the one and only pattern book you will need until your baby grows out of size 5T. For cherished baby gifts, there are so many wonderful choices.
Tanis has put together a glowing list of contributors, among them: Melissa LaBarre, Kate Oates, and Taiga Hilliard. All the knitting designers have created truly modern patterns for the kimono seen in the header, a striped romper for baby boys, and the most darling unisex “Polka-dot Pullover” with kangaroo pocket, just right for finger puppets or that truly awesome lego piece.
Gray, a product of Rhode Island’s own RI School of Design, has created the “Modern Filigree” baby blanket pattern, quick and easy, no doubt on US 10.5 (6.5mm) needles, using just three skeins of chunky weight washable yarn.
