Knitting for Children
35 Simple Knits Kids Will Love to MakeBook - 2010
In Knitting for Children, Claire Montgomerie shares the secrets of her successful knitting classes that show little ones how to create their own toys, accessories, and more. Packed with great projects suitable for children aged 7-12, and with projects that cover a range of skill levels, kids will eagerly progress through the 35 easy-to-follow patterns and variations. The "Getting started" section gives essential guidance, covering not only all the knitting basics, but also how to finger knit, make tassels, put together pompoms, and more. Claire has chosen yarns that are smooth and simple to knit, with the weight suitable for smaller hands. Start with the snake scarf--it's a fun but easy project that teaches the basics, and once they've mastered this piece, your child will be straight onto the next challenge. They can try the cozy mouse mittens and then move on to a pretty ragdoll, or stitch the colorful patchwork blanket before making a cute teddy bear. This book provides the perfect way to introduce your child to a fun craft that will be useful for the rest of their life.
