Kids' Knitting Workshop is hands-down our favorite learn-to-knit book for kids. In fact, before opening Stars Hollow Yarns, Lisa (owner and founder) discovered it when looking for a kid-friendly "how-to-knit" book for her own 7-year-old daughter. It worked out even better than she had hoped...and while she now sings its praises to customers, her daughter has been teaching her friends to knit!
Beloved knitting instructor Susan B. Anderson presents her first book targeted at a young audience. This accessible introduction to knitting in the round includes easy-to-follow illustrated tutorials on techniques from casting on and binding off to joining colors to make stripes, and 17 progressively challenging knitting projects—beginning with simple infinity scarves and hats and building to supersweet toys and decor. Step-by-step text and photographs that kids can read and follow on their own mean they will be knitting independently in no time! Also included is a chapter on stocking your toolbox and sourcing yarn; plus advice on starting a knitting group, connecting with local knitting communities, charity knitting, and more.
We recommend this book for ages 7 and up.
