Alice and Jade Starmore are a mother-and-daughter knitwear design team from Scotland. Alice has to her credit more than half a dozen knitting books, including the popular Aran Knitting (LJ 8/97). This latest book is an enchanting collection of designs for ten hand-knitted garments for children aged two to nine. Each pattern includes an introductory excerpt from a classic of children's literature, full-page photographs of a child wearing the finished garment, and a clearly presented pattern with written instructions, a schematic, and charted designs. Interspersed with the patterns are tips and techniques illustrated with large line drawings. Warmly recommended for public libraries where demand for children's patterns warrants.
