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.

Most of the patterns are for arans and Fair Isles but there are some simpler knits for beginners. This makes it a great book for knitters of all levels.
When I purchase a knitting book I ask myself three questions:
1) Does the book contain patterns that I want to knit?
2) Are the patterns easy to read?
3) Is the book a good resource.
The answer to all of these questions is 'Yes'. If I had the time I would knit every pattern in this book!
Alice Starmore yarn is no longer made but good substitutions are Jamieson, Simply Knit or Rowan.
This book is one you'll want to look at again and again. It provides beauty and inspiration each time you open it up.
