Rhymes are combined with photos combine to bring a thorough introduction to knit stitch and purl stitch with simple, enticing patterns. The knitting patterns for beginners are easy to make, and the completed projects are fun to play with.

Further instructions and more complicated patterns follow in the latter half of the book for more advanced knitters or later practice once your skills have evolved.

Thoroughly revised, combining both the original A First Book of Knitting for Children together with the authors' follow up title Knitting for Children, this book is great for both children and adults and an invaluable resource for anyone learning to knit.
