What people are saying:


“Final tally, my boy liked and would wear more than half of the sweaters in this book, and I would like to knit any of them. Win!” - Jillian Moreno, —Knitty first fall 2012 issue.

"As the mom of a brood of boys, I’m only too aware of the lack of patterns for little men! Boys’ Knits provides for accessible designs with variety–from textures, to cables, to asymmetry, each piece twists on the basics to make for a unique and wearable handknit. With tips and tricks that every knitter appreciates, such as details on fit and making size adjustments, you’ll get use from this book long after you’ve knit each pattern!" —Kate Oates, tottoppers.com

"Boys’ Knits hits that sweet spot for boy’s knits with patterns that are both wearable and fun to knit. Your boys will beg you to knit for them and you’ll be happy to oblige! The book also has the best adjustment advice I’ve seen for kids garments.
...Boys are amazingly hard to knit for. If you use yarn that is too scratchy they won’t wear it (no matter how much you tell them that it will keep them warm!). If you knit something very complex you are also almost guaranteed that they won’t wear it either. Katya has got it just right with this book, enough knitting interest that you’ll have fun while your knitting but nothing over the top that little (or big) boys will refuse to wear!" —Carol Feller, stolenstitches.com

"Frankel recognised the need for more patterns for young boys and I can only assume she must have an amazing empathy with them because from my experience she really got it right. The necklines used are boy friendly – loose but not gaping with the occasional hood. The patterning appears to be interpreted from a boy’s perspective – arrows, bricks, steps, and waves. And they appease the parent and/or knitter with shoulder shaping allowing for growth spurts – saddle, circular, or dropped. Designs also suit the different lengths as the wearer moves upwards. The layout of the book is stunning with dropdead gorgeous kids who almost outshine the knitting!" —Entangled Magazine, issue 04.

Knitting a hat or a pair of mittens for a beloved child could hardly be more satisfying: the project is finished quickly, the small amounts of yarn that are needed make for great stash-busting – and in the end, you’ve kept a sweet person warm during her grand adventures outdoors. In this charming follow-up to her acclaimed Boys’ Knits, Katya Frankel shows once again just how perfectly she understands kids’ tastes. Whether you are knitting for girls or boys or both, you will find plenty of great-looking, quick-to-knit, easy-to-wear projects to keep your small people cozy. Shot in the breathtakingly gorgeous parklands around Northumberland, UK, the photographs will convince even the most die-hard resister of knitwear that maybe just this one time he’ll wear your hand knits.

24 patterns for boys and girls, including:
8 hat patterns,
7 neck-things patterns,
4 hand-things patterns,
and 5 sock patterns!

What people are saying: 


"Katya has cleverly created a set of patterns which suit both boys and girls, with beautiful√≠_photography and styling. The size ranges are outstanding and the patterns are comprehensive and easy to follow. I'm impressed!" —Justine Turner,Just Jussi 

"I didn't realize quite how much I liked Katya's design aesthetic until the patterns started appearing on ravelry. Every time one would pop up in the new design section it would catch my eye and I'd click through to see the details and I’d then realize who had designed it :-). The subtle traveling cable details, the minimal color-work with bright splashes of color within greys, I love them all." —Carol Feller

"...All designs have a contemporary and practical feel to them so rather than being loaded down with cute ruffles and such, these should raise few complaints or provide an obstacle for running, jumping and generally being a kid. ...There's good sizing information in the book and comments about ease and where it should be applied. The photography is great: clear and detailed but full of fun and mischief too. I thought the models were so beautifully captured as well as wrapped in gorgeous knitwear! A big thumbs up round here!"—A Playful Day podcast 

"Katya Frankel's designs are always adorable and the 24 patterns in Head to Toe showcase her amazing talent and relaxed style.";—Lara Neel, Math 4 Knitters
