Let’s Knit: Learn to Knit With 12 Easy Projects

Reviewed by:

As a knitter, I am always interested in books for young children to start knitting. Let’s Knit offers readers easy-to-follow directions for the beginning knitter. The book is divided into two parts: Get Started and Projects. In the first section, each part of knitting, from casting on to casting off, is clearly laid out on on a two panel spread, with numbered photographs of the steps involved. The captioned photographs depict a child’s hand showing the process in an uncluttered way, allowing the reader to match their hand with the picture shown. Small knitted animals (the directions for which are in the book) add extra information on each page. Following pages show patterns for simple, attractive projects that can be done fairly quickly for the inexperienced knitter. A good acquisition if you have students interested in hand crafts, or for a teacher who wishes to begin a knitting club at school. Grades 2-6
