Its that time of year when it seems like every time you turn around there is a baby shower. There are things every mom to be needs like diapers but they also need adorable hand made things for the baby on the way. Leisure Arts has a book out called Infant Boots and Hats and this book does not disappoint! The book has a total of 6 sets of hats and boot crochet patterns and all for $3.99 for the digital and $5.99 for the paper back book. That is only .50 cents per pattern for the paper back copy! These are patterns that you can do for girls and boys so I really feel that you are getting a real bang for your buck.
All the patterns use a worsted weight #4 yarn, I am almost positive EVERYONE has a skein of that laying around their house and this book gives you a great reason to use it. I also want to add I really like how they go over the yarn used on the last page. This is so important.... If you are not able to use the yarn used it is very important to know what type of yarn used so you can find an alternate that will give you the same drape. If you are unsure of a great alternative I highly suggest www.yarnsub.com. I love the font size of the patterns. The book is set up up with each pattern having a shopping list section that tells you how many colors you will need, the size hook and any additional supplies you will need.

So far I have made two hats from the book and one set of shoes. The patterns I have made are the Lacy Boot and Hat and the Casual Hat. I think they both are adorable. While the Lacy set is more feminine I do think the casual set can be geared to any gender with a simple change of colors. Really the Lacy set is the only set that is more feminine the others could really go either way with the colors you choose. In conclusion I really think for the money this is a great book to own. If you do not have the need to make baby gifts for your own little ones they make wonderful gifts. If you are interested in this book you can buy it here.
