Kids Learn to Knit by Lucinda Guy, Francois Hall


Kids Learn to Knit by Lucinda Guy, Francois Hall

This is one of a series of books using cartoon characters to teach children new crafts. In Kids Learn to Knit , the little animal characters teach children everything they need to know about knitting, starting with where wool comes from to casting on, through simple knit and purl stitches, increasing and decreasing and casting off. Each new stage of the learning process has a bright project to work through, from the first basic squares to creating a cute dog, an owl, a little bag or a butterfly. The book is written in clear, simple-to-understand text and the project instructions are both charted and written out, for greater clarity. Older children can follow the book on their own. Younger children can do it with Mum, as they look at the pictures.
