Sweet & Simple Baby Crochet Book Review and Giveaway!

I had an opportunity to review the new book, Sweet and Simple Baby Crochet, by Kristi Simpson of RAKJ Patterns!!

Sweet and Simple Baby Crochet is PACKED with 35 patterns for babies up to 12 months as well as a detailed stitch guide in the back.  Inside, is not only hats, but also diaper covers, footwear, sweaters, and more. You can also check out the "look book" online to see everything included in the book.

I wanted to try out one of the patterns to check for gauge and accuracy. I am happy to report that everything was spot on! The photos are gorgeous, it's easy to read, and follow along.

My favorite one in the book is the Fruit Punch Hat. It is so cute and I had the perfect yarn for it. Kristi suggests yarns to use and they are all affordable and easy to find in stores.

There are quite a few patterns in this book that I can't wait to make!

Now for the giveaway!

  1. I have been holding off on ordering the book, because I already have most of the older patterns. I don't think I'll be able to hold out much longer though. Kristi's patterns were the first I tried when I learned how to crochet. There are so many patterns in it that I want to try: the Chevron Hat, the Old-School Jacob Vest, Vivianne Slippers, and the Fruit Punch Hats are probably my favorites!!!

    I love the Elephant hat on the cover and I'd go right to the Giraffe hat next.

  3. I love the MOOSE!

  4. I'd love to try the sock pattern! I've been wanting to try socks...just been a little afraid to give it a whirl lol!
