In fifteen easy projects, from bouncy bean bags to a rolled-edge sweater, author and knitting expert Melanie Falick teaches kids of all ages how to knit. Through step-by-step instructions and candy-colored illustrations, beginners learn the fundamentals: knitting tools, finger-knitting, and basic stitches such as knit, purl, mattress, overcast, embroidery, and stockinette.
Kids Knitting emphasizes fun in every step of the learning process. Sunny paintings by Kristin Nicholas illustrate the individual steps of each technique. Bright boxes of blues, greens, and reds explain everything from button-sewing to tassel-tying. Charming photographs by Chris Hartlove feature finished projects modeled by the creators themselves--all kids who knit.

Best of all, kids get to keep and use whatever they make: bookmarks, backpacks, bracelets, even their own set of customized knitting needles, topped with acorn caps or polka dot balls. ( )

Kids Knitting
Lots of useful information about how to start knitting. Great projects for kids to learn the craft.
Love the charity aspect of this book. Tips along the way. Liked hearing the traditional patterns used by other countries around the world.
Lots of possibilities with different patterns are included.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

The best book, hands down, for teaching knitting. I've used it with kids from age 9 on up. I also recommend it for adults who don't have anyone around to help them learn, because the illustrations are superb. ( )

I was given this book as a child when I first started knitting, and it has served me well even as I have gotten older. It explains techniques clearly and has good illustrations. The full-color photos of, well, kids knitting, lend good cheer to the book. It contains a number of projects suitable for both children and the adult beginner, and it's a great reference to have. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an introduction to knitting. ( )

This is the book I'd buy for a kid who wants to learn to knit. Heck, I'd suggest it as the first book for an adult who wants to learn to knit too. There's a section on how to knit, and then patterns that use the skills explained.

The increase in difficulty for patterns doesn't have a big jump (knit a scarf, then knit a sweater), and the patterns are wearable/useful.

This one book would get you pretty far--meaning you could become a fairly proficient knitter using the explanations and patterns in this book, without having to go find other books.

Caveat: I haven't knit any of the patterns, so I don't know how readable/clear they are. ( )
