I have been knitting for about 12 years now and one of my favorite things to knit is things for my kids, especially my daughter. This book is amazing. Such great patterns and to me they all seem fairly easy, for someone knitting as long as me. I really love the variety and I love buying a book where I feel I would want to knit about every pattern! A must have!

Many good patterns for kids size 6 and over. Not many knitting books that have good, easy patterns for this age group.

I ordered this book thinking I would have a number of possibilities for my 6 year old granddaughter, but somehow very few of the offerings struck me as of interest/appropriate. Maybe I am being too picky, but somehow complicated lace patterns was not exactly what I thought I was getting. I will keep the book and try some items, like the sun cover-up, but I was kinda disappointed.

This is an awesome book and I am happy with its addition to my library. I haven't made anything out of it yet because I am working on two projects right now...two because I get bored with one only and if I have two I can switch back and forth. The patterns are well written, the photographs are beautiful and there are many that if I had more hands I would be working on right now. I like to knit for kids because the gratification of finishing a project is so much quicker than knitting for myself (I am 6'2" and it takes a long time to knit a long project).

I have to admit that I have bought the yarn for a couple of projects already, so I am patiently knitting on my 2 projects until I can get to one of these projects from More Knitting in the Sun!

Happy crafting to all!

This book has the nicest childrens patterns in it. I haven't knitted any yet, so I can't speak for
the ease of reading the directions, but it has a good mix of lace and solid knitting. I think any of
these would please a little girl.

I really like many of the projects here including:

Jim beach cover up (more suitable for girls than boys-she should have named this Jen beach cover up) on page 6
Frances poncho (lovely lace repeat pattern) on page 10
Charlie updated argyle vest (suitable for both boys and girls) on page 76-I love the fresh modern updated argyle pattern so much I'd be willing to modify the pattern for myself in a larger size!
Madeline lace panel t-shirt on page 91
Edmund summer henley (suitable for both boys and girls) on page 108
Lucy ruffled top on page 113
Jack hooded sweater on page 128 (suitable for boys and girls but since I hate zippers I would modify it with buttons or do it as a solid pullover)
Artemis zip up jacket (suitable for girls with same modification as for Jack hooded sweater) on page 134
Satsuki yukata robe (lovely random flower pattern) on page 138 (this is my favorite pattern in the whole book-I would do this "as is")

The author has a number of tank top and tank top dress patterns for girls that really bother me because of the large roomy armholes. If I were to do them I'd close up the armholes so that they are more modest. This is because there is a small but significant percentage of sex predators out there. This type of stuff really gets them going. There is another percentage that would practice pedophilia if they knew for certain they could get away with it. The grown caring knitter (and crocheter) needs to think about these unpleasant aspects of life to do as much as they can to protect the young children in their lives.
