Craft Book Review: Susan B. Anderson's Kids' Knitting Workshop

jacket image for Susan B. Anderson's Kids’ Knitting WorkshopThis book has proven to me that there is still much to learn in the area of knitting, even for someone that has been doing for over 40 years.

This is such a well-illustrated book, with clearly written instruction, it should help any new knitter to learn this skill quickly.

The book is divided into easily digested chapters. To begin, she admits that the first information may seem boring but it is important to talk about the tools and materials that are needed to build confidence. Then she divides the rest of the book into lessons that are easy to follow along. She also places hints in each lesson, such as making a butterfly with the end yarn so the knitter does not get confused and knit with it. Each section also has projects for the knitter at whichever level they are at. There are some adorable bracelets or a cowl for beginners plus other patterns. Included in the intermediate knitter section are some cute headbands and a hat. Then in the advanced section, there is a cute fox pillow, toys and puppets.

Susan B. Anderson has written other knitting books like Itty-Bitty Hats, Topsy-Turvy Inside-Out Knit Toys. She also has a knitting blog and teaches classes on Craftsy and other areas.

I was going to give this book to a new knitter I am working with, but have decided to keep it as a guideline for future students.

I love this book. I was given this book by the author, artisonbooks and Workman Publishing, Inc. in exchange for my honest review.
