Teaching Kids to Knit

When is the right time for a child to start knitting? Well I would say if they are acting interested when they see you knitting and express interest in learning, it’s definitely time, no matter what age they are 2, 3, 4, 5… (though they may still have trouble with coordination). It takes time and practice!

This rhyme may help:

“In through the front door,
Run around the back,
Hop through the window,
Off jumps Jack.”

This poem really is great and it’s easy to remember! My nan taught me this way too! Just keep in mind that children learn by imitation, and what your child may really want to do right now is to pretend to knit like mommy.
