Not just for girls!
on 5 November 2012
A great knitting book aimed at children of primary school age, and older, with a range of things to make which are suitable for both girls and boys. Each project is ideal for a beginner, but offers suggestions for customising and increasing the difficulty level of the patterns for more seasoned young crafty types.
A fantastic gift in itself, or a great idea for a pre-Christmas buy if the children want to make their gifts this year. Clear directions, lots of photos and diagrams and a big 'learn to knit' section at the front of the book are all useful. If you really get stuck, a quick search on YouTube can help you with just about any knitting technique you need a bit of extra explaining.
Value for money-wise, although this is a slim volume, there are lots of projects packed in, as well as all those clear and well-written knitting tips at the beginning. There really is something for everyone, from the more frivolous creation to more simple, practical items. Highly recommended!
