Although geared towards kids, and teens, Teach Me to Knit is a great book to have if you are a teacher, or a young person just learning how to knit. This book is very informative. It takes the reader on a journey from the very basics, how to choose yarn, make a slip knot, and how to cast on. Beautiful color photographs explain the different sizes, and types of knitting needles.The book shows examples of straight needles, circulars, and double-pointed needles. Various weights of yarn exist for different projects, and there are photos showing a comparison of different types of yarn.


Included in this book are thirteen different projects which are all beginner level. Each lesson builds upon the other. For example Lesson 1 teaches how to make a slip knot, Lesson 2 shows how to Cast On, and by Lesson 3 you learn how to do the knit stitch, and bind off. By Lesson 4 you will be purling.  With these skills, you can make  a scarf, washcloth, pillow, toys for dogs, and cats, coasters, mitts, and hats just to name a few projects


The colorful graphics, and photographs inside are vivid enough to keep young minds interested. When youngsters can see their finished work relatively quickly this could be the start of a life-long hobby. Adults will like this book so they can teach their children, or students how easy, relaxing, and fun, knitting can be.

#bestideaever as a beginner myself, and an older gentleman with a short attention span this is such a great way to teach! I love being able to get immediate results.

This book is an interesting means of encouraging young people to knit - the only criticism I would make is that, as in so many other things, left-handed would-be knitters are forgotten. Years ago, as we struggled to teach Brownies to knit, it occurred to us to use a mirror when teaching left-handed girls. Instead of watching the adult demonstrating, the learning knitter would look in the mirror, and copy the mirror image. Worked every time
