New. A knitting book with a difference. Rhymes and photos show in detail the basic steps of knitting. A thorough introduction to knit stitch and purl stitch is followed by simple, enticing patterns for animals. The patterns are easy and exciting to make and the completed projects are fun to play with. Although written for children, this book is a valuable resource for adults. Handwork teachers, parents and grown-ups wishing to learn how to knit will find that the simple to follow instructions, the interesting patterns and the artistic photographs make this book a must for their collection.

A great book in the Waldorf style of teaching - rhymes, imagination, etc. for helping children remember what to do. My 7 yo son is enjoying knitting now. Includes instructions for making needles, verses to help remember casting on/off, various stitches, etc. Covers the basics very, very clearly in child-friendly language, and has easy directions for little animals to make.
One thing: It is better to learn it yourself, and then teach your child, if at all possible. (I'm sure the authors know this, but the book is directed to children, so they don't mention it.) My 7 yo still hasn't seen the book. Fortunately, the authors make it easy enough to pick up quickly so you can pass it on to your child.
