Children Knit Crochet Patterns American Thread Star Book 231

This pattern booklet, American Thread, Star Book 231, is on the small side, just 8 patterns, but, what wonderful patterns they are.  The patterns are designed for children between 6 months and 6 years.      Here, let me show you ....
Portraits in Fashion
American Thread, Star Book 231
Knit Crochet Children Baby Patterns, American Thread Star Book 231
Portraits in Fashion starts off with a big statement is this WONDERFUL Girls Party Dress.   It's short sleeves, with a little round neckline and drop waist ... both a textural and visual wonder.   This will piece is crocheted and sized 2, 4, & 6.
Vintage Girls Tam Poncho Pattern
 Poncho & Tam:  This cute set is knitted with crocheted edging and ties..   It is a one-size pattern designed to fit a child in the 3 - 6 years.  She'll love the texture of the popcorn stitching and, of course, the pompom ties. 

 These adorable pieces are knitted suits.   The sets include a jacket and pants for a boy (although, I don't know why a girl couldn't also wear), and for girls, a jacket, skirt and beret.   Both the Boys and Girls set as sized 2, 4 & 6.   

Vintage Baby Carriage Set Crochet Pattern
This layette is called a Carriage Set.  It consists of a cover, a sacque, cap and booties.   The cover measures 31" x 38".   This set is crocheted and sized 6 months to 1 year.  The lacy edge is particularly wonderful.

Vintage Boys Raglan Striped Sweater Knitting Pattern
 Toddler Boys Raglan Sweater - What a handsome piece for your little man.   The sweater is knitted in colorful stripes and sized 2, 4 & 6.

Knitting Pattern Girls Easy Jumper
 Okay, talk about cute !   This little girls Crochet Jumper is sized 2-3 and 4-6.   It is an easy product, mini length and u-neckline.

Fringe Coat.   Do you love it !    This little delight is Size 6 and is knit with crocheted loop stitch detail for the fringe.    Oh ... a pattern for the mittens and tam is included, as well.  

Childs Easy Knitted Vests Pattern
 Knitted vests for him and her.   A separate pattern for each ... one has buttons and the other a tied.   These are Knit/Crochet and sized 2, 4, and 6. 

Cable Baby Set Knitting Pattern with Bonnet Jacket Booties Mittens
 Here's one more Baby Layette.   This one is knitted with some crochet and sized 6 months to one year.

 We end this booklet with the same picture as the front cover (as is typical for American Thread).  But, what a great back picture it is !

Every pattern here is worth creation.  But, I have to say that the party dress and the fringe coat are just over the top.   I'm not a little girl, but I'd still like to have one of each.

I've reworked most of these patterns and they are available in my shop -- just click the link under their respective pictures should you be interested.     .

Thanks for dropping by,
