Editorial Reviews

Yarn Market
Guy uses conversational language to get the kids incrementally working on a stuffed square owl, triangular butterfly and, finally, an 'all-together' bag incorporating everything they've learned, empowering them to stitch on.

Library Journal
Once again, knitwear designer Guy and illustrator Hall (coauthors, Handknits for Kids) collaborate to bring their special touch to knitting. Clearly written instructions and large color illustrations make each step of learning to knit simple for readers aged five to ten. Each lesson is accompanied by an easy project to reinforce learning. Projects include a knitted book with button closures, embellished knitted butterflies, and a colorful knitted bag. The text also covers the basics of making knitted tubes with spool knitting. Highly recommended for all public library children's collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

I bought this book for my goddaughter-age 12--to teach her how to knit. Instead it was taken away by my best friend, who just retired, and wants to learn how to knit--again!! Obviously, this book works for any age.
