Knitting books abound. It seems one or two new ones are published every week. While I enjoy poking through the newest books for adult knitters, it’s also fun to see what authors are writing for future generations of knitters, too. Because I believe that the best things in life are hand-made. Seems they come straight from the heart.
Do you have a Brownie or Girl Scout in your house? One of the badges they can pick up is knitting, and this book, Kids Knit!: Simple Steps to Nifty Projects, is just perfect for teaching one, or a group of children, all about this beautiful craft. In fact, when my grand daughters get a little older (and let’s not rush that just yet!), Grammy will surely be using this book to teach them all about needles and yarn!
I love the BIG BRIGHT pictures that you will find in this book. Sarah Bradberry, the author, starts at the very beginning, so everyone has the exact same information to learn how to knit. Boys, girls, anyone at all is welcome to learn how to knit using Kids Knit!
Some of the things kids will learn are:
- The Knit Stitch
- Casting On
- Binding Off
- How To Read a Knitting Pattern
- Measuring Gauge
These are fundamental to any knitter and kids will pick it up quickly with the nice, big pictures which accommodate each lesson. Ms. Bradberry keeps it simple, having kids practice on the knit stitch only. Then, she cleverly throws in little features like “how to make pom-poms” or a “twisted cord”; knitting additions that are always very useful to finishing off even the simplest of projects.
Then, there are the projects! These include:
- Sunglasses Case
- Doll Blanket
- Cat Toy
- Pot Holder
and so much more!
In fact, your young ones will have a great time knitting all that is available in Kids Knit!
There are some very nice reviews, too! You can see them right here.
Everybody LOVES this book! “Kids really do knit”, and “Wonderful!”, and “Great for Beginners and Experienced Knitters” can’t be wrong. Affordably priced at just $8.78, Kids Knit! is in stock and ready to come to your house today!
We all have little ones in our lives, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbors, cousins, siblings and more. Why not be the one who teaches them how to knit? What a great craft and one that will ONLY be used when passing it along to those who come after us!
So, put the smartphone down and pick up the knitting needles! For you and your little ones. So they can also say, “Kids Knit!”
As always, take your knitting to heart!
