After years and years of looking at this book and wondering what it was all about, I finally inter library loaned it. Now, I know.
This books is excellent. There are nice step by step pictures with verses for learning to cast on, knit and purl. There are also some really cute patterns to make all sorts of animals and a few dolls. I can see why this book is on so many lists as one to have on hand for handwork in the grade school years.
It even talks about problems the children may encounter while knitting, making stripes, increases and decreases. A must own for any parent who wants to teach your children to knit as a part of their handwork education.
