Crocheters begin by exploring techniques specific to crocheting with fine yarns: gauge, blocking, and garment construction tips to maximize drape. Then they can choose from 20 projects inc.

Nikki Van De Car spent the months before her daughter's birth knitting constantly to keep her hands busy and to help the time before her arrival pass more quickly. She knitted everything from sweaters and hats to burp cloths and stuffed animals. Over the course of the following year, she learned which items were actually useful, and which sat in a drawer, never to be worn. The 28 patterns collected in 'What to Knit When You're Expecting', for babies aged from 0 to 12 months, are the best of these, and include booties, mittens, bibs and blankets, as well as sweaters, hats and cardigans. All are relatively simple, so can be knit while your mind is elsewhere, and all are immensely practical. This title is organized according to where you are in your pregnancy, the patterns for the first trimester reflect the fact there is still plenty of time to finish a longer project; those for the second, when many women learn the sex of their baby, focus on clothes for girls and boys; and projects for the third are quick and easy.
