|Buttercup's first knit!|
Since this week is dedicated to Back to Homeschool, I thought for this week's yarn along I would chat a little bit about teaching kids to knit.
|Rogue's first knit!|
That being said, if you knit, they will probably want to as well. I am not sure I am a very good instructor, but somehow the kids figure it out. I think Lily helped Buttercup more than I did!
A great place to start with teaching kids to knit is finger knitting. This is so fast and easy, they will get the quick gratification which always hooks the new crafter. Here is a really cute tutorial from Frontier Dreams: Four Finger Headband.
One great resource is the book A First Book of Knitting for Children. It has some great little projects for beginning knitters!
Here are some links about teaching kids to knit:
Most of all have fun. All my kids down to Buttercup know how to knit. I am amazed when one of them creates something and the joy it brings them. It is a skill they are very proud of!
