Knitting For Kids book review by my sister

knitting for kids book review

Knitting for Kids by Paula Hammerskog & Eva Wincent is filled with over 40 patterns sweaters, hats, & more to knit for your little ones. And I do love knitting for little ones. Children’s clothes work up quick & turn out so cute. The wonderful thing about the patterns in this book is, they’re timeless. Anything you make from this book today will still be relevant & beautiful 5-10-20 years from now. These are classic designs.

The book is lap-sized, so if you’re like me & sit & knit while watching TV, it fits perfect right there in your lap. The printing is big enough & the full color photos are clear enough that you can just give a glance downward every now & again to make sure you’re doing things right. As someone who’s used to reading knit patterns I had no trouble whatsoever reading & following the patterns in this book.

Only have a few hours? Whip up a striped beanie. If you’re looking to make a larger investment of time & effort, the christening gown on page 49 is absolutely gorgeous. The baby cardigan (4 variations) can be made in under a weekend. There’s something in here for just about every level of knitting expertise.

With the holidays fast approaching, this book would make a wonderful gift for the knitter on your list. Or if you’re the knitter, there’s still plenty of time to make a few of the patterns for that special child in your life

  1. 1

    This looks like a great book. I’ve been wanting to learn to knit for a while now, but I am so behind on my scrapbooking that I just can’t start another hobby until I catch up.

  2. 2

    This does look like a great (and unique too) book to give a knitter for the holidays. I like the modern pictures too.

  3. 3

    Knitting is such a great skill, My daughter likes to crotchet and bet she would love learning to do things like this for her to be here cousin in January!
