Book Review: My First Knitting Book – Projects for Beginning Young Knitters

My First Knitting BookMy First Knitting Book

DISCLOSURE OF MATERIAL CONNECTION: I have a material connection because I received a review copy for free from the publisher in connection with NetGalley in return for my review. Copyright © 2016 Laura Hartman

My First Knitting Book features clear, easy to understand instructions for new knitters. There are written instructions, diagrams and pictures to help any type of learner complete over a dozen easy projects. The basic knit and purl stitches as well as increases and decreases are detailed. The importance of gauge, which varies from person to person and is dependent on the type/weight of yarn as well as the size of needled you use is not addressed until the very end of the book. Hopefully readers will not just pick out a project before reading the whole book first.

The project instructions include the yarn type needed, needle size and easy to follow diagrams to complete things like scarves, a pouch and a stuffed owl toy.

This book is appropriate for older children (with help from an adult) to adults, but most of the projects are geared to children and younger teens.

While My First Knitting Book has all the mechanics included, I don’t find this book standing out from most other knitting books for new knitters.
