Today, an ancient and venerable hobby is gaining popularity among kids. It's the craft of knitting! These days, our youngest knitters are discovering that they can do it anywhere, and make everything from handbags and belts to scarves, hats, sweaters, bracelets, and fun toys. Starting with simple finger knitting, the author goes on to instruct on how to use straight and circular needles as kids master a variety of different stitches. Clear, full-color, step-by-step line art is supplemented with color photos of finished pieces. Kids will also find information on knitting materials and equipment along with methods for knitting different shapes. The author gives directions for completing sixteen projects, including a funny-face drawstring bag, a super-size name scarf, a matching head scarf and belt, dolls with floppy arms and legs, a plaid poncho, and even a cozy mohair-and-wool sweater. Here's the latest, greatest kids' craze--and here's an easy and fun way to start knitting.
