KIDS CAN DO IT: CROCHETING by Gwen Blakley Kinsler

KIDS CAN DO IT: CROCHETING

Age Range: 8 & up

KIRKUS REVIEW

Another easy-to-follow instructional book in the Kids Can Do It series. Spacious, colorful illustrations set against all-white backgrounds integrate well with the no-nonsense directions to help the new crocheter move quickly from making a slipknot to creating a chain to making simple projects. Though all but one of the ten projects are variations on squares and rectangles, the authors do a fine job of explaining other techniques such as sewing, beading, and adding tassels and fringe that add a lot to the finished piece. From headbands and scrunchees to scarves, afghans, purses, and glasses cases, Kinsler and Young have come up with lots of ideas to keep young hands and minds busy, and will help insure that a new generation learns a skill that has brought such pleasure to so many. A good introduction to the craft. (Nonfiction. 8+)
