Vintage Knits for Modern Babies
by Hadley Fierlinger, Photography by Angela Lang
Awww. It’s impossible not to page through Vintage Knits for Modern Babies without making cute noises. Because not only are the projects awww-inspiring, the photography of soft ‘n’ sweet babes is equally adorable. This beautiful book ranks projects by skill level — beginner, intermediate, and experienced — so those of all skill levels can take part in the fun. Talk about gift potential! These aren’t your typical baby sweaters. New Zealand-based author Hadley Fierlinger gives us baby-fied versions of an angola bolero, a matinee jacket, cabled booties, even a double-breasted car coat. We think her vintage pixie cap and organic heirloom blanket would make fabulous gifts for friends with wee ones. Check out Fierlinger’s online shop at shescraftyknits.com). She’s been creating knit duds for cool kiddies — including her own two sons — since 2002.
