Baby Crochet by Sandy Powers

I could not resist the cover shot of the sleepy baby wearing the hat with shamrocks hanging on each side. It is just too cute. Photographer Tara Renaud complements the projects of Sandy Powers’ Baby Crochet with utterly adorable photos. This book has 20 crochet patterns for newborn babies up to 24 months. The patterns range from hats, bunting, booties, sweaters, diaper covers, and afghans to adorable “cocoons.” The book has creative designs for both boys and girls.
