Kristin Nicholas Design


Book - Knitting for Baby

Knitting for Baby was co-authored with Melanie Falick. It is a complete "how-to" book for the beginning or experienced knitter. Kristin designed all of the projects in this book, including knits for babies and adults, toys, and home decor, in addition to painting all 64 technical "how to knit" illustrations.

Melanie and Kristin's children were born a month apart. The authors were inspired by their babies to collaborate on this collection of modern heirlooms. Melanie's words walk the novice (or lapsed) knitter through the basic cast-on, knit stitch, finishing, cabling, and other techniques. Kristin's colorful fresco-inspired technical illustrations clearly show the knitter how to make the projects that she designed.

The babies were photographed by Ross Whitaker, acclaimed child photographer. Below are some sample photos and illustrations from this wonderful book.
