School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-This well-designed, clearly written book discusses yarn, needles, and other supplies. Beyond instruction in the basic techniques of casting on, knit and purl stitches, increasing and decreasing, and binding off, it shows how to make fringe, pom-poms, and tassels, and how to combine stitches to create patterns; it does not tell how to pick up dropped stitches. There are complete instructions for a headband, a rolled-brim hat, slipper socks, a book bag, and more. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, and the large, softly colored, superior-quality diagrams show exactly how to perform each step in the process. Color photos show the finished items. The introductory portion of Susie O'Reilly's Knitting and Crochet (RSVP, 1994) has a similar scope, but the book has fewer and less-sophisticated projects. For older children, Melanie Falick's Kids Knitting (Artisan, 1998) gives instructions for more difficult items but the basic techniques are not quite as stepwise. With its larger typeface and illustrations, simpler projects, and fewer pages, Sadler's book is sure to be an attractive resource for the youngest would-be knitters.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ (c) Copyright 2010.
