Annie's brings back popular layette pattern book
The book was first published by Annie's Attic in 1989 and remains one of the company's most requested crochet pattern books. It includes a girl's layette and a boy's layette. The girl's layette includes an afghan, a long dress, a bonnet, booties, and a bottle cover. The boy's layette includes an afghan, a sweater, a bonnet, booties and a bottle cover.
Both sets are sized for newborns and infants 3-6 months. Each set calls for DK weight yarn, with patterns written at the intermediate skill level.
Michelle Crean is the designer of the book's projects. She is an award-winning designer who for many years has been a frequent contributor to Annie's publications.
Connie Ellison is the book's editor. She is the crochet product development director for DRG's Annie's Attic-brand products and originally started with the company in 1979. She is a member of the Crochet Guild of America and lives in East Texas.
Annie's publishes high-quality needlecraft publications and craft patterns known for instructional accuracy and clarity. Every book includes a stitch guide and a list of needlecraft abbreviations for added ease in creating each project.
