A First Book of Knitting for Children by Bonnie Gosse and Jill Allerton
This is a knitting book with a difference. Rhymes and photos show in detail the basic steps of knitting. A thorough introduction to the knit and purl stitches is followed by simple, enticing patterns for animals. The patterns are easy to follow 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 other adults who want to learn how to knit will find that the simple instructions, the interesting patterns, and the artistic photographs make this book a must-have for their collection of handbooks and references.
