Awards & Reviews

“A well-designed, easy-to-follow guide for new knitters.”
— Kirkus Reviews, August 2002
“This well-designed, clearly written book discusses yarn, needles, and other supplies. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, and the large, softly colored, superior-quality diagrams show exactly how to perform each step in the process. With its larger typeface and illustrations, simpler projects, and fewer pages, Sadler's book is sure to be an attractive resource for the youngest would-be knitters.”
