Book Review: Crochet for Baby All Year by Tammy Hildebrand

Crochet for Baby All Year Blog Tour

I apologize, everyone, as I was supposed to have this post up and running on Monday. Due to some unexpected computer issues and my daughter coming home for a few days for a family celebration, I was unable to get things posted until today.

We’re giving away a copy of Tammy’s book. Entry details at the bottom of the post.

We’ll also be conducting a text-based online chat with Tammy on Wednesday, July 23, live from the Crochet Guild of America’s annual conference and the Knit and Crochet Show. Check back here or on our Facebook page in the next few days for the exact time of the chat.

 

My Review

My good friend, crochet designer Tammy Hildebrand’s newest book is scheduled to be released on August 14. I’m proud to be part of a blog tour designed to whet your interest in the book so you’ll rush right out and pre-order it or buy a copy on release day!

Crochet for Baby All Year

The book is available for pre-order on Amazon for only $16.46 (retail list price of $21.95).Published by Stackpole Books.

Many of our readers are probably familiar with many of Tammy’s intricate lacy and flowing designs for adult women. Did you know that she’s just as fabulous at designing patterns for babies? In her new book, Tammy has created a collection of designs that will enable you to keep your baby well-dressed for their entire first year of life. Whether you’re crocheting for a girl or a boy, no matter what time of year the baby was born, you will have a wonderful selection of baby garments to make.

The options are endless. Some patterns are themed to a specific month, but many patterns can be worn at any time of the year, especially if made in different color choices.

You’ll find 20 original patterns that are suitable for beginning to intermediate crocheters. You’ll find sweaters, vests, dresses, hats, booties, swimsuits, and more, in a variety of styles ranging from cute casual outfits to super-dressy for holidays and special occasions.

If you have a baby in your life to crochet for, you really need a copy of this book.
