Susan B. Anderson's Kids’ Knitting Workshop: The Easiest and Most Effective Way to Learn to Knit! Reviews
This book was super helpful for my kids. My learning knitters are age 10 to 14. They mastered the basics from this book and made each other fingerless gloves, scarves, and little hats for Christmas. The lessons were easy to understand and had great pictures and illustrations accompanying them. Susan Anderson has a great understanding of explaining knitting in a way the layman can understand. She also has videos on youtube that are helpful and match up with her words from this book. This book took the frustration out of learning a new skill for my kids.
I've been teaching knitting to children for years, and this is by far the best source I've ever seen. It is well organized, has great methods and ideas and is fun. This should become the gold standard for knitting with kids. I love that it's called "workshop".
I really like it. I feel it is organized better then the other kids knitting books I have and I love the spiral binding. I think this book with some size 10 /16 inch circular needles and some bulky yarn would make a great gift for someone wanting to learn to knit.
I wanted to teach my daughter to knit and this book has helped her. The pictures are really good and helpful to learn from. The projects are cute and if your child is like mine or most people really, knitting is most fun when the goal is a finished project not just a swatch. Most projects are good for boys or girls too i.e. puppet, hat, or cup cozy. Lots of good stuff. The binding is spiral bound and strong glossy paper. Very nice.
Don't let the title fool you, this is a great introductory book for all ages. I gifted a copy to a 60+ yo friend, and she was so grateful to have all the basics explained (yarn types, how to cast on, basic terms, etc.)
Susan B. Anderson is one of my favorite designers and she didn't let me down with this book either. Lots of fun patterns, easy to follow, lots of pics along the way as well as finished project. She rocks! Get this book - you won't be disappointed!
perfect gift for the beginner knitter. Clear and concise. Great feature is the ring binding, so the book lays open flat, freeing your hands to do the knitting.
Our daughter and grandaughter both loved the book and felt it would help them both knit better and learn some new knots or whatever they are called.
