"Knitted Nursery" is a complete guide for beginners wanting to create a brightly coloured, unique nursery for their expectant bundle of baby joy. This attractive collection of designs contains strong contemporary colours to provide a stimulating visual environment for babies and helps create a modern, uplifting space to live and play. Strong primaries, fuchsia pinks and outspoken oranges are set together with bright purples striped side-by-side with vibrant greens, yolk yellows and deep reds to create the perfect antidote to the passe pastels of the high street. Patterns of this title include: a snuggle blanket, ABC blocks, cot bunting, beach hut bookends and a washing line wall hanger. All patterns use cotton DK yarn, which is easy to wash, durable and child-friendly and the same sized needles are used throughout, so it couldn't be easier.
