KIDS KNIT BOOK
Kids Knit is the perfect starter book for children wanting to learn how to knit. Packed with 20 fun patterns and top tips for knitting success, this comprehensive children’s knitting course starts with basic knitting skills and gradually increases in complexity as the book progresses.
Children begin with chunky, wooden needles to create simple shapes using Rowan Big Wool. The key at this stage is to get projects completed quickly so children grow in confidence and see themselves as creatively capable. As they move through the patterns, skills are consolidated and new skills introduced.
Available from 7th October
|Teach Kids How to Knit with our easy course and step-by-step instructions!|
|Now’s the perfect time for kids to learn to knit. School’s out and they’re confined to home, so a creative outlet is just what they need. Knitting helps kids learn maths, spacial awareness and mindfulness, and boosts their creativity and confidence, all while working at their own pace.|
In the 5-part course they’ll learn:
How to cast on, knit, and cast off
Tips for success
How to make 3 quick, fun projects
We’ve included a simple striped cowl for when they’ve mastered the basics
All your child needs is a ball of wool and some needles (we recommend Rowan Big Wool and a pair of size 10:00mm/US15), a tapestry needle, craft scissors and basic crafting supplies. Support your local yarn store if you don’t have what you need, or easily order online.
We recommend the course for ages 7+.
Give your child the gift of a skill they’ll have for life, and teach them about the satisfaction that comes from making their own toys and clothes, and the joy of sharing their creations with others!
