Celebrities do it, and kids want to do it, too: knitting has become today’s top crafting craze. Children love it, and any Brownie or Girl Scout has to learn it to earn her badge. Now there’s finally a book aimed right at this ready and eager age-group, with simple instructions and projects with real kid-appeal.
From dolls to doll blankets, scarves to backpacks, the 20 projects in this fun and colorfully illustrated collection will encourage kids to pick up needles and yarn and start knitting. With the easy-to-follow lessons, which proceed logically from very basic to more advanced skills, children can keep on learning as they work. They’ll see how to read a knitting pattern; cast on and do simple stitches; bind off; darn in the ends; make tassels, fringes, and pom-poms; sew on a snap fastener; join a new ball of yarn, and much more. It won’t be long before the youngest knitters are completing a Sunglasses Case, Headband, Scrunchie, Ribbed Scarf, Cat Toy, House Cushion, Teddy Bear Puppet, Kite Bookmark, Drawstring Purse, and Tote.
