Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8–In this handsomely designed volume, a combination of softly hued illustrations, sharp, colorful photos (including dozens of full page), and step-by-step instructions clearly guides young people (including "lefties") through 15 projects. All aspects of crocheting are covered: yarns, tools, hooks, size, sides, rows, attaching a new color, borders, texture, increasing/decreasing, stitches (chain, single crochet, woven, rib). Handcrafted items include a neck cozy, tool pouch, friendship cuffs, patchwork poncho, triangle-square quilt and pillow, and critter cushions. Boxed text provides useful information on winding a ball of yarn, weaving in tails, sewing on a button, keeping track of rounds, etc. Along with Susan O'Reilly's Knitting and Crochet (Thomson Learning, l994), this title is a good choice for craft collections.–Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 4-7. Here's another beautiful crochet book to join Jane Davis' Crochet: Fantastic Jewelry, Hats, Purses, Pillows & More (2005). This, too, has projects that kids will really enjoy making: hats, a poncho, a pillow, a scarf, bags, toys, and head and wrist bands. What will especially entice children are the sharply reproduced color photographs, which make the projects pop. Also excellent are the attractive drawings showing crochet basics. This offers some extra bang for the buck with sidebars providing instructions for more-complicated crochet techniques and information about subjects such as crochet around the world. Both boys and girl are shown enjoying the craft. Ilene Cooper

There are things one orders on line for others, particularly for grandchildren, which one would prefer to preview before sending. My two oldest granddaughters turn 10 and 8 this summer, which means that they are the right age for crafts. I had stumbled upon a lap loom and bought the oldest girl one for Christmas (made in NH and sold at an independent toy store in MA), while the younger one received a potholder loom.

Although weaving seemed a good place to begin, exposing the girls to domestic crafts grew as an idea. I started skipping through the internet, looking for kid friendly books and tools.

I bought this book, Kids Crochet, with the intention of sending it to them later . . . I was committed to the looms and, really, one craft at a time, is best. Two craft projects would have overwhelmed them. I'm still going to send the Kids Crochet book later, either for Valentine's Day, Easter or their summer birthdays . . . after buying another for myself.

I learned to crochet in 5th grade through a friend. Crocheting in the late 1950s is not what it is today and the 'projects' generally reserved for children were useless and discouraged any further interest in this craft. Frankly, the same criticism applies to all crafts taught children during the 50s, including the granddaddy of them all: the gimp lanyard. Furthermore, if anyone should stumble upon a project book for kids crocheting that was written during the middle of last century, one would assume that kids had no taste, no preferences, no voices of their own.

Kids Crochet is a beautifully illustrated book featuring photos of attractive and happy kids (boys as well as girls) making and wearing crocheted items.

I'm a 28 year old mother who is a beginner at crochet. This book may be geared towards children, but I can't help but be grateful for the simplicity of the instructions. It only teaches the single crochet, but that's great for a beginner like me. With the single crochet, I will learn how to make ribbing, change colors, crochet in the round and increase and decrease. The best part of the book is the wonderful projects! With this book as my guide, I will be able to make ribbed scarves, circular pillows, dolls, an afgan made with triangles (sooo cute!) and even a sweater, just to name a few. The book is beautiful. It reminds me of my Martha Stewart kid's magazine. If you're a beginner, no matter what your age, this book will serve to keep you hooked.

This is a wonderful book for learning how to crochet, but keep in mind that it does not cover half double crochet, double crochet and the taller stitches. It covers several variations of single crochet, both increases and decreases, as well as providing ample illustrations for all of the techniques. I understand why they limited it, as they would have had an enormous book if they covered every aspect of crochet in the same level of detail. Still, it might be confusing for those who learn from the book when they're confronted with patterns that list hdc, dc, tr, dtr or trtr among the stitches.

I'm actually a knitter, so this is my first crochet book. If you're just learning to crochet, this book gives excellent detailed step-by-step instructions. Most of the patterns are made to fit children from around 8-14years, but there are also super cute patterns like pillow covers and bags. I absolutely love this book!!!

I bought this book for my daughter a few years ago. She wouldn't let me teach her how to crochet, but later picked up this book and taught herself in one morning. She was 8 at the time. I have since used this book with our kids craft club. The illustrations are wonderful and show everything from tying a slip knot to chaining to turning a row and finishing off. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, although I suspect my daughter taught herself simply from the pictures. I highly recommend this as a good starter book. The Crocheters Companion by Nancy Brown is an excellent reference as you continue learning.

I used this book to teach my class to crochet last year. It does only cover single crocet stiches and increasing and decreasing, but that is enough to introuce kids to this craft and give them a few projects to work on. My class loved making the striped mufflers. We got a lot of partial skiens of yarn donated and this worked perfect to make the mufflers with. Everyone's was unique and the kids, boys and girls alike, enjoyed wearing something they had made.

The Kids Crochet book is wonderful. I bought this book for my 10 year old son who wanted to learn how to crochet. He has been able to teach himself to make scarves and hats and change colors. He also has made projects using 2 different colored yarns for a heathered effect. One of the interesting tips they include. I was happy to find that the book offers great projects to make for boys too. He is going to make the juggling balls next. This book only uses single crochet, which is great for beginners, that way they can get to making projects fast and don't get confused by stitch patterns. My son crochets on car rides and on winter weekends. This is a great activity for kids and adults.
The book is hardcover and the pages are nice and thick. The only improvement I would make is have it spriral bound.
