Crochet is a traditional craft that has remained popular through the ages, and it is modern treatments of the craft that keep it that way. Crochet for Babies and Toddlers encompasses a fresh, innovative and exciting approach to crochet, making use of the range of classic and newcoloured wools and cottons available and concentrating on up-to-date designs. The basic techniques are followed by charming patterns that feature clothes, gifts and other nursery items designed for new-born babies through to three-year-olds.
