Following their creed of minimal finishing, Deb and Lynda Gemmell and fellow Cabin Fever designers bring you more than 30 delightful fashions for children. Most of the designs are knit in one piece or constructed from one of three different directions. Choose a cozy pullover knit in the round from the bottom up or from the top down. Or choose a cardigan or vest made in one piece, working back and forth on a circular needle. These can also be knitted from the top down with no seams to sew. For something different, work a sweater from each of the cuffs and then join in the middle. There also is a poncho, beaded bag, tunic and hat, hoodie vest, and bare midriff slipover. Your special little ones will love wearing these amazing creations, which are great for experienced as well as beginning knitters. Kids' Knitted Sweaters & More (Leisure Arts #4399)

Japanese stitch patterns are eye-catching and much sought after by devotees, but before now, they often seemed out of reach, whether locked behind Japanese-only instructions or tangled up in difficult-to-decipher illustrations. Japanese Stitches Unraveled offers 150 rare patterns inspired by these elusive and intricate Japanese stitch designs, along with fully illustrated charts, familiar symbols, and clear instructions for every single stitch. Each stitch pattern receives Bernard’s unique four-direction makeover—topdown, bottom-up, back-and-forth, and in-the-round. To showcase the knitting in action, Bernard also includes instructions for six garments as well as her famous formulas for knitting without a pattern.
