Product Description

Parent''s Guide to Children''s Media Award Winner

“This is the best how-to-knit book for kids I’ve seen in a long time.” —Knitty

In fifteen easy projects, from bouncy bean bags to a rolled-edge sweater, author and knitting expert Melanie Falick teaches kids of all ages how to knit. Through step-by-step instructions and candy-colored illustrations, beginners learn the fundamentals: knitting tools, finger-knitting, and basic stitches such as knit, purl, mattress, overcast, embroidery, and stockinette.

Kids Knitting emphasizes fun in every step of the learning process. Sunny paintings by Kristin Nicholas illustrate the individual steps of each technique. Bright boxes of blues, greens, and reds explain everything from button-sewing to tassel-tying. Charming photographs by Chris Hartlove feature finished projects modeled by the creators themselves--all kids who knit.

Best of all, kids get to keep and use whatever they make: bookmarks, backpacks, bracelets, even their own set of customized knitting needles, topped with acorn caps or polka dot balls.

Review

“[Susan] has managed to write a book that not only teaches kids to knit, but also helps a knitting adult teach a newbie knitting kiddo. This is the best how-to knit book for kids I’ve seen in a long time.”
Knitty
 
“A joyful book!”

I reviewed half-a-dozen books and kits for one to give my niece, who expressed interest in learning to knit. This was by far the best. Projects start with basic garter-stitch bean bags and progress through sampler-stitch scarves to a fun pair of socks and finish with a simple first sweater. The presentation is detailed, instructions are well-illustrated, and there are fun informational pieces, explaining where different fibers come from, and there are even instructions for making your own straight knitting needles.

I also love the pictures of kids knitting, especially the prominent inclusion of boys and non-white children enjoying the craft. Knitting is for everybody!

I''m sixty-plus years old and finally taught myself how to knit. This book was one of my favorite resources. Its explanations and illustrations help with the basics, plus the projects are fun. My first hat was the two-squares-knitted-together project from this book. It became a sampler project for me, but this book also has a sampler scarf and several stitches to try. I love the wizard hat that I just finished. I did it in the adult size; the modifications are spelled out in the book.

I knitted a little as a child but never got to the point of socks or sweaters. This book starts with the basics and leads children to their very first major projects. It throws in history, gives some projects to get started before knitting such as how to make your own knitting needles!

I was beyond impressed, it explained what seemed impossible for me to decipher. I often find many craft books such as knitting and crochet presume a lot of knowledge, there is little out there for beginners to decode what the master patterns are talking about. This book teaches you how to do things in layman''s terms and then by the end goes through what typical books expect you to already know and provides an exercise with a key for understanding the terminology. Brilliant!

As a teacher, I''m going to bring this book to class... and start projects of my own. I''ve always found that if I''m bringing my craft projects such as sewing to my classroom and working on them during my free time, the children see this and get curious and start asking their parents for the resources to begin themselves. Best way to get your kids interested? Learn yourself and show your own interest in the project (even the all boys classes get interested in my projects and request me to make things to show them. They also learn appreciation of the effort that goes into making clothing and helps them respect their own).

This book is well worth buying. I''m very inspired for myself and for my students... and when I have children, they''ll be learning from this.

Been knitting for decades (so I didn’t buy this book with the intention of learning to knit, ever). I lent my hard cover copy to a friend with a young daughter quite some time ago and it was never returned. I missed having this book in my knitting library. Love knitting books and this one is very inspiring. I decided to make a worsted weight pair of socks. I always have cold feet, but you shouldn’t about this book. The author, Melanie Falick has more books that are equally pleasant to use.

This book presents knitting in a colorful interesting way. The illustrations are easy to follow.

One of the many things I love about this book is that it shows two ways to cast on -- the "single cast on" which is often known as the loop cast on as it creates a row of loops, and also the "knit-on cast-on." I like that includes the old poem for teaching children to knit: Under the fence, catch the sheep, back we come, off we leap -- with a description of each step. Basic knitting stitches are well illustrated, including basic bind-off, knit and purl stitches, basic knit patterns such as garter & stockinette & ribbing & simple cable & seed stitch, also yarnovers, knitting in the round on circular and double-pointed needles, I-cord, picking up dropped stitches, decreasing & increasing, blocking, and how to read a knitting pattern (complete with abbreviations and what they mean).

The basic projects in this book are: the basic bean bag, pocket scarf and hat set, patchwork afghan, garter stitch dolls (cuter than knit dolls in some books), owl & pussycat bath puppets, crazy caterpillar, wraparound ribbed scarf, backpacks, eyeglass/pen case, purse/wallet, wizard''s cap, magic spiral tube socks on double-pointed needles (no heel turning for children), swatch scarf, fuzzy felt balls, Curly-Edge Pullover

Also included: how to sew a kids'' knitting tote bag from fabric, making tassels, how to donate your projects such as through Caps for Kids or Warm Up America, sewing on buttons, and embroidery stitches with yarn.

There is a section on dying your own yarn with Kool-Aid, sections on "sheep to shawl" which shows the main processes involved with turning wool to yarn. There is also a section on "knitting around the world" which briefly highlights knitting from places such as Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands, Russia, Scandinavia, Latvia, South America, the Middle East, and the Salish Indians of Washington State & British Columbia. The last two pages include a list of yarns and places that sell this yarn mail-order along with a sample letter.

Overall, this is a pretty terrific kid''s book, and not bad for adults, either.

This is the book my 8-year-old daughter and I used together to learn how to knit. As the subtitle says, it''s a book for kids "of all ages".
When you read through this book you will not only learn how to knit, but you will have a deeper appreciation of needlework in general. The author covers what basic supplies you need to get started, how to make your own knitting needles (yes! And it is a lot easier than you may think), how to decorate your needles, why you should start using two different color needles, what to do when you don''t have any needles (you can still knit with your fingers, the book shows you how!), how to make "kool-aid" yarn in super-fun colors, and where yarn comes from. The instructions were much simpler to understand than those in the traditional "adult books" and after finishing a few of the basic projects, I actually felt inspired to learn more, as did my daughter.
If you are looking for a terrific alternative to TV and video games then definitely buy this book. There are plenty of photographs of girls AND boys from all different races and creeds who seem to be enjoying their time spent knitting, and the pages are splashed with fun colors and typeface.
5 Stars. This is the very best beginners book on the market!

This is a lovely book that will get kids excited about knitting. My son (age 8) was excited to learn and to try some of the projects in here. The photos show boys and girls and many bright colors and a variety of fun projects. I bought this so my son and I could learn to knit together. Unfortunately, the instructions are not clear enough (or detailed enough?) for a beginner to learn from. We had to give up and are waiting for a friend who can teach us in person!
