Kids Learn to Crochet

Following the success of Kids Learn to Knit, Lucinda Guy and Francois Hall have combined forces again to show young children, from 6 years of age, how to crochet, with the help of Francois Hall’s witty animal illustrations: two little mice and a friendly wolf.

The book Kids Learn to Crochet takes children from the very first steps of learning about yarns, to how to make a foundation chain, how to work the basic crochet stitches, such as double, half treble and treble crochet. It explains how to shape crochet, how to work in the round, and how to stitch crochet pieces together.

Each stage in the learning process culminates in a simple, brightly coloured project, so young crocheters can test their skills and have fun doing so at the same time.

Projects include a striped toy cat, a small stuffed bear, a cute bag and a bunch of fabulous flowers.

A section called "When Things Go Wrong" offers humorous advice about dropped stitches, sewing troubles and other frustrations.
