Author Tricia Drake, who has published patterns in such magazines as Spool and Living Crafts, has released a book of baby knits, many of which are made from our Gruesa and Worsted yarns! We are honored to be featured in at least four patterns out of the twenty in Welcoming Home Baby the Handcrafted Way, and many of the other patterns are well-suited for our other yarns, like Chunky, Rasta, Aquarella and Rios!
One reason this book is so exceptional is the versatility of the patterns – many of the newborn cocoons double as hats, and the blankets and hooded capes (used to swaddle and warm newborns) can double as snuggly friends and costumes well into toddlerhood. These knits are so quick and tiny that even the most novice of knitters will be able to grasp and work through the concepts and designs quickly, resulting in a plethora of fun, funky, baby knits for the new mom, eager friend or family member looking to make something really special and unique.
Do you have a book that features Malabrigo? Send a press kit (including photos and description) to firstname.lastname@example.org — we would be pleased to talk about the patterns in our yarns on our blog!
