Synopsis

Kids! Picture Yourself Knitting by MaranGraphics Development, Joanne Yordanou

Can you picture yourself knitting? Do you want to learn how to make fun and colorful scarves, hats, and more for your friends and family? Kids! Picture Yourself Knitting shows kids just like you all you need to know about knitting, from needles and yarn, to simple stitches, and how to put it all together to create a finished piece. You'll learn about different types of yarn and knitting needles and how to choose the right ones for your projects, as well as the other tools you'll need to keep handy when you begin knitting. Once you've got your yarn and needles, you'll learn how to hold and work with them, common knitting terms, and fundamental knitting stitches such as the knit and the purl. With the basics covered, the book will show you how to read a knitting pattern, finish off and start a new ball of yarn, and try out some advanced knitting skills to help you put the finishing touches on your projects. The book features seven cool projects to help you practice your new knitting skills including hats, scarves, a pillow, and a purse. Each project features full-color pictures to help you gather the supplies you need, and step-by-step directions lead you through it from start to finish. Get ready to make your own unique wearable and shareable knitted creations!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
