The Useful Books Gift Guide
Knitting for Kids by Paula Hammerskog & Eva Wincet
Whether you're a vet or a newbie, you can use this book. There is a pictoral guide to teach you how to knit in the back, and the instructions for everything from an easy beanie to a super-fancy christening gown include sizes, materials, gauges, measurements, etc., as well as the all-important picture of an actual child modeling the piece so you can see what the heck it's supposed to look like when it's finished.
