A young child would have become frustrated very fast.

Unfortunately you have to keep a close eye on each hook while knitting, because the yarn will sometimes skip a stitch leaving a hole in your project.

My 6 year old daughter asked me to teach her how to knit so she could make clothes for her dolls...but I don't know how. I took a chance when I saw this product in a catalog; it had no reviews then so I was just hoping it would work well. She got it for Christmas and has had a blast with it! By the end of Christmas morning, she had already knitted two different pairs of leg warmers which she now loves showing off as her own creation to her dance class. She's also made a full-sized adult scarf and is working on a poncho for herself. She is beyond thrilled that she can do this on her own and actually has a product to be proud of at the end of it all.

I did not have any of the issues the other reviewer had. It's hard plastic, so I don't expect it to last forever, but we have put it through some work and it's still holding up. You must be sure to keep the thread easily moving through the machine; it puts a lot of strain when it's trying to pull it out of the skein itself. Also, **be sure to read ALL the way through to the end of the directions about marking the starting point with a permanent marker before beginning (that was written last and didn't make any sense...it should be front and center because THAT matters!) My daughter needs a little help loading it up and tying the ends off when her product is complete, but I enjoy something that we can work on together and it doesn't bother me that she needs my help for 2 minutes or less on certain stages.

Bottom line: we're having a blast with it! (I think everyone in the family is getting a knitted scarf for Christmas next year.) :)

Hi,

This machine is surprisingly exceptional....so, I have to tell the world lol

seriously.. I was pleasantly impressed, after trying this knitter on almost all types and weights of yarn.... it works!

it squeaks a bit for heavier weights (like a clunky toy), but with a little patience i was even able to use double yarn to make my socks.. I dont recommend double yarn in "walmart" yarn weight if you can help it.. get a better, lighter weight yarn.. and it has a slightly wider spacing between each needle than the professional sock makers...but not bad.

I have a professional Addi knitter for larger items, but couldn't afford the small "sock" addi maker as well, so tried this one. I'm sooo glad I was able to save the $120 extra bucks since this-while not perfect-is adequate for my needs.. and, in my opinion, far superior to a "toy" :)

I'd recommend it

We bought this same one at Walmart for $20, Christmas 2010. It works, but the gear starts to slip badly after using it for just a short time (only got about 3/4 of the way done with a scarf before the gear started slipping). It can still be used, but has an annoying noise as it slips (drove me nuts!). My husband took it apart and lubed it and that helped a tiny bit. It's easy to use, but it's not well made and certainly will not last for years. The gears are plastic and that itself tells you it will not last forever. It's certainly worth the $20 Walmart price ($62.00 price listed here is outrageous!), as I was able to make several scarves with it, but I certainly wouldn't spend any more on this item.

As soon as I opened the box we starting knitting. It took a few times to figure out how the needles work. It is important to have the tension hooked up right. The instructions are not so good and knowing a bit about knitting helps. Having said that my purpose was to have my grandkids (3 &4) help make their leg warmers and mittens. We did the first day make the first leg warmers. They were able to crank with a little help. We made a long snake last night for the 2 year old which he loves. My imagination is sparked and I have lots of ideas for new projects. I wanted to know whether I would enjoy a knitting machine. It is lots of fun.

This product, is great. for a hand knitter your just amazed at how fast the fabric comes out.

it is a toy, but its a great to practice with machine knitting.

the only cons to the machine are:
-the beginning isn't cast-off
-the crack might slip if tension is too high
-theres a click noise [click noise means your doing it right]
-yarn is a little expensive [ light 3 yarn]
- finishing both ends off is challenging

. but you must remember this is a toy. a real knitting machine might run you 100$ and up
i love my nsi knitting machine

you must choose the wool that your are using for this item very wisely. maybe a cotton type. Have made just a small try at the moment, and I think a person has to persevere, but i think its a fun toy

This is a mommy/daddy and me craft. But, that is what I expected when I ordered it. After carefully reading the instructions and practicing a couple of times. I was able to get it set up so she could take over and "crank" out an adorable tube scarf. She was so excited and proud of her creation. I have not tried panels yet, we are still enjoying the tube function. I still need to do the finishing of the ends, but she is watching and learning. I don't knit but she has been asking to learn, so I thought this was something we could do together. I recommend it, but be patient! It takes some practice in the beginning, it has a steep learning curve, but once you got it, you are off and knitting!
