Knitting designer Tricia Drake (otherwise known as TrickyKnits on Etsy.com) makes popular custom hand knits for newborns and for the professional photographers who photograph them. In a delightfully creative style, Tricia’s 20 patterns in Welcoming Home Baby celebrate the new little one with an engaging palette and cozy garments and knitted pieces. Playful and pretty, the projects are for beginning knitters as well as seasoned knitters. Each project includes skill level, size, gauge, glossary of abbreviations, materials, size and yarn variations, and multiple full-color how-to and finish photographs. Many of the projects offer a variety of sizes so you can keep on knitting from the moment of birth to toddler and beyond!
About the Author
Tricia Drake started her line of accessories, TrickyKnits, in 2008. Shortly afterward, a customer who also happened to be a photographer, requested that she create a custom handknit piece that could be used for photographing a newborn. From that first Eskimo Kiss Hooded Cocoon and Peek-a-Boo Pod came Tricia’s signature pieces for newborns and toddlers, knit with bulky yarns on unexpectedly big needles and accented with chunky handspuns. Tricia is happily married to Tim Moses, a patient soul
who never complains about the yarn that has taken over their house. They live in Nashville with their
seven young children.
