Making Memories: Timeless Knits for Children is an enchanting collection by Claudia Quintanilla. It features pieces for the smallest ones in the family, from newborns to 10-year-olds. The classic knitwear combined with Laine’s dreamy photography and playful illustrations create a book unlike anything seen in this genre before.
It includes 25 knits for children — from cardigans, sweaters and two cosy blankets to smaller pieces, like socks and mittens. The majority of patterns are graded from newborns to 10-year-olds and feature various yarns as well as knitting techniques. What about a colourwork pullover, an all-over lace scarf or an embroidered cardigan? The classic knits combined with the dreamy photography and playful illustrations create a children’s knitwear book unlike anything seen in this genre before.
Claudia Quintanilla is a yarn shop owner and knitwear designer based in Toronto, Canada. Originally from El Salvador, Claudia found the colder climate of Canada to be the perfect setting for knitting. However, it wasn’t until she stayed at home to care for her young daughter, that she found the rare combination of pleasure, tranquility and passion in knitting. This journey culminated in the founding of her Toronto-based brick-and-mortar yarn shop, Eweknit & Craft. Making Memories is her second book.
