Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A well-designed, easy-to-follow guide for new knitters.

This well-designed, clearly written book discusses yarn, needles, and other supplies. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, and the large, softly colored, superior-quality diagrams show exactly how to perform each step in the process. With its larger typeface and illustrations, simpler projects, and fewer pages, Sadler’s book is sure to be an attractive resource for the youngest would-be knitters.

Children's Literature
This book is part of the "Kids Can Do It" series. The book aims to help children learn to knit. Sadler explains the type of supplies needed and how they are each used. The first half of the book attempts to explain, in detail, the basic knit and purl stitch. All of the steps are illustrated although it is difficult to interpret them. While the book does its best, knitting is difficult to learn only through written explanations. A younger child may have a lot if difficulty understanding the steps without personal instruction. The last half of the book offers some simple projects, although none of them are highly original. Some of the projects are a headband, a pom-pom, a scarf, mittens, a book bag and a small purse. One interesting suggestion in the book is that of a project log. A child should take a picture of everything he/she makes and write down what kind of yarn is used and the pattern; a neat idea for kids to see what they have accomplished. 2002, Kids Can Press Ltd,

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-This well-designed, clearly written book discusses yarn, needles, and other supplies. Beyond instruction in the basic techniques of casting on, knit and purl stitches, increasing and decreasing, and binding off, it shows how to make fringe, pom-poms, and tassels, and how to combine stitches to create patterns; it does not tell how to pick up dropped stitches. There are complete instructions for a headband, a rolled-brim hat, slipper socks, a book bag, and more. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, and the large, softly colored, superior-quality diagrams show exactly how to perform each step in the process. Color photos show the finished items. The introductory portion of Susie O'Reilly's Knitting and Crochet (RSVP, 1994) has a similar scope, but the book has fewer and less-sophisticated projects. For older children, Melanie Falick's Kids Knitting (Artisan, 1998) gives instructions for more difficult items but the basic techniques are not quite as stepwise. With its larger typeface and illustrations, simpler projects, and fewer pages, Sadler's book is sure to be an attractive resource for the youngest would-be knitters.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
A well-designed, easy-to-follow guide for new knitters. Long ago, knitting was a skill taught to children as young as three. Sadler’s (Sandwiches for Duke, not reviewed, etc.) short, easy-to-follow directions, accompanied by clear photographs and illustrations, will make it easy for children to learn this satisfying craft. Without burdening the young reader with distracting information, she explains the stitches and gives detailed, straightforward instructions for 11 projects, from a scarf to mittens to a jaunty bookbag. She has wisely altered some traditional patterns to make them more child-friendly; for example, the socks are called slipper socks and are made on two needles with a seam up the back rather than the traditional four-needle method. Children are photographed modeling the finished projects that have been knitted in bright colors. While knitting is still best learned from another person who is proficient in the art, many fine knitters have taught themselves from books. Sadler makes that task possible for beginning knitters of any age. (Nonfiction. 7+)
