More About This Book

Overview

This endearing book is a unique treasure for its delightful story, charming illustrations, comical characters, abundance of nostalgia, and practical instruction that introduces children to the world of knitting and crocheting in a gentle and encouraging way while providing a wardrobe of knitwear for dolls.

Enjoy the adventures of Mary Frances as the crochet hook, knitting needles and yarn come to life, ready and anxious to teach her to knit and crochet. You will meet Crow Shay, Knit and Knack, Wooley Ball, Yarn Baby and a beautiful fairy as they take you though a series of lessons in a book that loves to be read aloud while teaching new skills in storybook format.

Children will love the quaint language and captivating storyline alone, and by following along with the projects, they will be rewarded with needlework skills and a lovely collection of clothing for 14- to 18-inch dolls. Adults and doll collectors will appreciate the historical authenticity of the early 1900's knitwear patterns.

More than forty needlework projects are provided including doll hats, scarves, sweaters, shawls, a petticoat, leggings and more. Styles in knitwear are timeless fashion pieces. These projects can be used to create authentic period attire, or updated through the use of contemporary colors and accents. Modern girls can make their dolls look trendy by combining a piece of vintage knitwear with fashion-forward accessories. Black and white illustrations are featured on every page along with color cover illustrations.

The Mary Frances Knitting and Crocheting Book 100th Anniversary Edition has been restored, updated, and expanded including a new introduction, larger format, fresh typesetting and enhanced graphics plus present-day yarn, hooks and needles for projects to fit contemporary dolls.

Knitting and crocheting are valuable skills that can be learned at a young age. The rhythmic, repetitive movements are calming. They teach the value of patience and perseverance. They develop fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, concentration, math skills and self-esteem. Best of all is the feeling of accomplishment that comes from creating something beautiful and useful from a simple strand of yarn.

The complete Mary Frances 100th Anniversary collection includes The Mary Frances Cook Book 100th Anniversary Edition, The Mary Frances Sewing Book 100th Anniversary Edition, The Mary Frances Housekeeper 100th Anniversary Edition, The Mary Frances Garden Book 100th Anniversary Edition, The Mary Frances Knitting and Crocheting Book 100th Anniversary Edition, The Mary Frances First Aid Book 100th Anniversary Edition and The Mary Frances Story Book 100th Anniversary Edition.
