Overview

One of the fastest growing trends today is teenagers learning to knit. While the word "knitting" used to make you think of grandma sitting in her rocker knitting a baby blanket for some distant relative, this is just not the case anymore. Today, millions of teens and young adults everywhere are learning to knit. And, they are creating some amazing garments and decorative items!

Why is knitting popular with teens today? Some believe it is the affordability and ease of acquiring the supplies necessary coupled with the popularity of simple items such as iPod cozies and cool hats and scarves. As the popularity of knitting grows, there are even starting to be after school clubs dedicated to the art of knitting. In these clubs teens get together and learn new knitting techniques, share ideas, and show off their latest completed projects with each other. While knitting is usually seen as a very solitary craft, joining a knitting club allows you to share your works with others and gain inspiration. Knitting clubs also bring a social aspect to the art of knitting which has never been there before.

While teen knitting is the most popular with girls, an amazing number of boys are learning to knit as well. It is no longer considered taboo for a boy to learn to knit. And, if he is interested in girls there are plenty of them at the local knitting club. Many a teen romance has started over knitting needles. Many boys are making laptop covers and gifts for the special people in their lives. What teen girl wouldn't love to get a hand knitted item from her boyfriend?

This book provides all of the information you need to get started such as types of needles to use, various yarns and fibers, stitching techniques and several ideas on what garments to knit. A MUST READ book for the teenager looking to join the crowd of new knitters!
