Simple Knit for Cherished Babies' is the best-selling baby knits title in the world and is now available in a new smaller format! Her designs, in pure yarns such as merino wool, silk and cashmere, are not only marvellously soft and gentle for a new baby''s delicate skin they are absolutely modern in feel, while retaining as their core inspiration the best of baby's classic knits - bootees, bonnets, cot blankets and cardigans - but with a modern edge. This new format is set to appeal to the current market.

The stitches she uses are quick and simple to knit, but highly textural in feel. Even a complete novice can master most of the patterns in the book, and the simplest will take only an evening or at most a weekend to knit. In a carefully chosen colour range of art-shade pastels and neutrals that have a long-lasting appeal, these knits are the heirlooms of the future. Any parent will want to knit them, own them and keep them for future siblings or as mementoes for the future.

I would question the author's yarn choices (cashmere may be nice, but how are you going to wash it?!), but you could always make a substitution.
The patterns do look very simple and beginner friendly, some of them even just use garter stitch so you don't even need to know how to purl.

I would guess that anyone who would knit with cashmere or silk for an infant never had a baby of her own. However the book does tell you yarn weight and metric sizes, so it is easy to substitute yarns that will survive the washer and dryer.
