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!

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!

I love this book, as it has so many great patterns for children and not babies. I needed patterns for a 5 year old and this book has some really great ones. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who knits as much as I do.

I was looking for a knitting book with patterns for older kids. Almost all of the patterns go up to size 12! There are lots of fun outfits that go way beyond your typical sweater. I can't wait to knit the skirts, beach cover-up, board shorts and zip-up hoodie. There are plenty of dressy pieces, but all of them are clothes kids would want to wear any time because they look super comfortable. There are 2 sweet twinsets for girls that could easily be paired with skirts for a special occasion, or shorts and jeans for play. There are plenty of fun textured stitches to try, not a lot of colorwork, although there is a beautiful kimono-style wrap sweater with intarsia flowers.
One note on modesty with some of the girls' sleeveless tops and dresses. The surplice sundress, although lovely, is too low-cut, in my opinion, so I would either shorten the straps or make the bodice a little bit longer. As with any garment, you can try the garment on the child as you knit it, if possible, and adjust as needed.
The photographs in this book are beautiful, and show off the garment well, and the patterns look well-written. Another fun touch is that the patterns are named for characters in children's literature, such as Ramona, Hermione and Caddie! All in all, I am very satisfied with this find and can't wait to get started!

This is one of those rare knitting books where you want to knit every single pattern. I've made two things so far and I'm starting on my third. The wide range of sizes means I'll be coming back to this book for years.

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.
