Learn to knit with 12 easy projects
One of the books included in DK’s Made By Hands Boutique this year is Let’s Knit. Let’s Knit includes 12-easy projects perfect for anyone wanting to learn how to knit.
I have very basic knitting skills and I am always looking for simple projects to inspire me to pick up my needles. With Let’s Knit you receive 12 easy projects which not only help you learn to knit but also have the added bonus of being absolutely ADORABLE!
The 12 projects included are:
- Fred’s Hat and Scarf
- Big needles
- Brilliant bracelets
- Night owls
- Knitted sheep
- Bag charms
- Kitty cats
- Finger fun
- Bat-tastic bats
- Bag bonanza
- Percy Penguin
- Sally the snake
From cover to cover, Let’s Knit is vibrant – filled with colorful images and fun fonts. Although this publication is geared toward children it is perfect for teaching you the basic beginner knitting skills you will need to move onto larger projects and it does so in a fun way!

Let’s Knit will make the perfect gift for your young crafter – and it will also make a bright and fun addition to your own library if you would like to learn how to knit! The step-by-step photo tutorials will help you master the basics and the finished projects will be something you can gift or keep for yourself. I suspect I will try my hand at making some of the totally adorable Kitty Cats!!
