  • Pass On Your Love Of Knit Or Crochet

    If you're looking for a way to unplug the kids from the internet, TV, or video games, crocheting and/or knitting are sure to do the trick! Both are fun—and productive—hobbies for kids of all ages.

    Linking learning with fun is the most effective way to teach. Once your favorite child sees that this fun activity leads to creating something they can keep and cherish, or gift to someone special, their excitement will only grow. Not only that, both knitting and crocheting use real-life math and reading, and helps improve fine motor skills. There's knit a thing to lose and so much to gain!

    Getting Down To The Knitty Gritty

    Children will love the step-by-step photos and kid-friendly instructions in Cool Stuff—Teach Me to Knit. Soon they'll be hooked, proudly creating their own beautiful and useful projects. Our book includes helpful notes for you while you teach, along with tips & videos to help along the way.

    After learning the slip knot and cast on, the first easy-to-take-on project is a knit coaster (or as a simple decorative touch under vases, frames or knick knacks). A few projects later is a soft drink cozy, which can be made to match the coaster. Keep your hands warm and your table dry while drinking a cold can of your favorite 12-ounce beverage, all the while beaming with pride.
