Book Review:Susan B. Anderson's Kids’ Knitting Workshop The Easiest and Most Effective Way to Learn to Knit! by Susan B. Anderson

Susan B. Anderson's Kids’ Knitting Workshop: The Easiest and Most Effective Way to Learn to Knit! by Susan B. Anderson is a great introduction to knitting for children, and adults new to the craft. This  introduction to knitting in the round includes easy-to-follow illustrated tutorials on techniques from casting on and binding off to joining colors to make stripes, and 17 progressively challenging knitting projects. The projects begin with simple infinity scarves and hats and build up to toys and decor. Step-by-step text and photographs that kids can read and follow on their own mean they will be knitting independently in no time.

Susan B. Anderson's Kids’ Knitting Workshop is a well organized and helpful tutorial for beginning knitters. The book is targeted to children and young adults, with projects that are focused on their demographics. However, as an experience crocheter with only a nominal knowledge of knitting I found the guide to be extremely helpful. While aimed at the younger set, I think adult knitters could use the information and tutorials to master the skill as well. I wish I had this book handy this first time I attempted to knit. With this guide I think I can make great strides in my skill set. I already feel more comfortable with the skill set, and think that anyone interested in doing the same could benefit from the book as well. I think kids and adults alike will find the guide well organized and helpful. The photographs, illustrations, and information combine to make the book readable and easily understood by all skill levels. The chapter on stocking your toolbox and sourcing yarn; as well as the advice on starting a knitting group and connecting with local knitting communities, charity knitting, and more was a nice bonus.

Susan B. Anderson's Kids’ Knitting Workshop is a helpful and very informative resource for children (and adults) that want to master knitting.
