"This book is a terrific teaching tool for getting children started on knitting. This book has step-by-step instructions - including photos of the steps - for knitting, spindle spinning, joining (seams that look seamless) and many other techniques. It also has some fun projects for kids, everything from headbands with animal ears to bracelets, scarves, tote bags and monsters. There's even a bow tie and a sweater." - In Stitches
About the Author
Mary Scott Huff, author of Fantastical Hats to Knit (CPi, 2014) began as a classically trained actor and theatrical costume designer, but accidentally became a computer programmer somewhere along the way. In writing her first two books, The New Stranded Colorwork, and Teach Yourself Visually Color Knitting, Mary fled the realm of Information Technology to pursue a more yarn-centered way of life. The many friends she found along the way have helped her become a nationally-recognized designer, teacher and author. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Mary shares a wee little house there with her husband, two children, some Scottish Terriers, and more yarn than is strictly necessary. You can join Mary on her adventures playing with string at www.maryscotthuff.comwww.maryscotthuff.comwww.ravelry.com/designers/mary-scott-huff

The book has wonderful photo tutorials for two different cast ons, knit, purl and binding off. There's also a section on frogging, tinking, retrieving dropped stitches, two different increases, two different decreases and knitting in the round. Once the basics are down, there's a section where you can learn about the different weights of yarn, how to swatch, how to block, how to join a new skein of yarn, how to seam pieces together, and even how to wind a ball of yarn from a hank! There's also a tutorial on felting and making pompoms (using either cardboard or a pompom maker). There is also great advice on reading patterns and charts.
When you're ready to start knitting, you can even learn how to make your own knitting needles!
When you're ready to knit, the book even comes with several patterns for everything from a bracelet, to a washcloth to a cowl and finally to a sweater! There are also patterns for a felted bag, some cute germy toys, a fun hat (which my son has already requested), a pencil roll, and a dog sweater (among others).
This book contains everything you need to learn the basics and beyond of knitting and will provide kids with hours of fun building a skill that will last a lifetime.
