My Review of Kids Knit
I can’t knit, well I can a bit now thanks to this book. Boo was interested in learning so I decided to learn with her. I do remember my Mum trying to teach me to knit when I was young, but she gave up on me, or I gave up because it was too difficult.
We bought a set of different sized knitting needles from Amazon. I bought beginners needles made from bamboo. It took a while but following the instructions in the book we were both casting on and learning how to knit.
It was very slow, in particular for Boo who has to do everything perfectly. But we were soon making progress. Boo’s next wish is to make this owl. I’ll let you know how she gets on with it.
The book is very aspirational containing age appropriate knitting techniques and patterns. It’s perfect for beginners and they can start learning the basics and be amazed at what they are suddenly able to make from these basics. One they’re ready they can move on to colour changes and complex shapes and textures.
The book has beautiful photography and also includes attractive illustrations, knitting jokes and activities. There are step-by-step tutorials which make learning very straightforward.
While Did the Owl invite his friends over?….. He didn’t want to be owl by himself!
There are 20 projects in this book each in level up sections:
- woven pouch
- fingerless mittens
- monster hand puppet
- tufty owlet
- bunting flags
- stripy cup cuddle
- bean bag
- cockerel egg cosy
- cat ears
- sleepy puppy
- little fiels mouse
- jewelled crown
- ornamental cacti
It really is a fabulous book and I believe even those that do not have a clue how to knit will soon be making amazing creations.
